Instant Ocean SeaClone Protein SkimmerSeaClone can be used as a hang-on or sump model. No airstones necessary. More efficient than air-driven protein skimmers. Kit includes protein skimmer and MP 1200 Maxi-Jet Power Head. SeaClone Protein Skimmer doesn't look--or perform--like any other protein skimmer. What you notice first is how much more efficiently SeaClone Protein removes organics and wastes from your aquarium. Utilizing the forces of nature, SeaClone creates a tornado of air and water that draws wastes into its powerful vortex, pushes wastes up the column, into the collection chamber and out of your aquarium, resulting in a clean, healthy aquarium. Turbo-Venturi Injector System mixes water and air in the pump impeller changer, creating a froth of micro-bubbles for maximum efficiency. The micro-bubbles also improve gas exchange. The vortex of air and water created in the Vortex Reaction Chamber draws organic wastes from the water. At the top of the tube, the spiraling air/water mixture propels protein laden bubbles into the collection tube above. The bubbles burst, forming a frothy solution which gathers in the collection chamber. Dissolved organic compounds collect in the large capacity collection chamber, keeping waste separate from clean water until it can be removed for cleaning. The large capacity cup holds more and requires less frequent emptying.
