Aqua Euro USA Protein SkimmerOur Aqua Euro USA Protein Skimmer maintains a clean marine aquarium ecosystem by effectively eliminating dissolved organic compounds (DOC), which is a must for keeping a pure, healthy environment for your aquarium inhabitants. This protein skimmer is made with high quality thick acrylic (not plastic) construction and the bubble plate diffuser increases 'skimmate'. Increased skimming ability makes this protein skimmer ultra efficient; chops water and air into a fine mixture of micro bubbles and the high bubble dwell time results in large collection of DOC. Aqua Euro USA's Protein Skimmers are highly favored among aquarists due to their superior craftsmanship, body design, performance and affordability.
Protein Skimmer is designed for in-sump use only.Skimmer will require 24 - 48 hours to "break-in" in some cases longer depending on the bio-load, during which time an excess of waste and bubbles might appear. Let skimmer run for a few hours before adjusting the water level. Once the skimmer has settled you can adjust the water level inside the skimmer to obtain a better consistency in foam production. The side opening on the second chamber is normal and will prevent the water from getting to the collection cup. Keep skimmer in a calm area of the sump away from turbulence. Dry skimming can be achieved by adjusting the water level in skimmer. Use the water level adjuster (see 1st page of instructions in box) to lower the water level.Note: Water on second chamber is normal and will not affect the performance of the skimmer. The opening on top of second chamber prevents the collection cup from overflowing.
