Protein Skimmers


Protein Skimmers

A protein skimmer, also known as a foam fractionator, is designed to remove organic waste compounds like food and fish excrement from aquarium water. Together with biological filtration, protein skimming is essential for retaining a healthy balance in your aquarium.

Skimmers use air bubbles to strip water particles of undesirable waste products. Removing these waste products from the water is important for a variety of reasons. Besides helping to clarify the water, protein skimming will help to control levels of ammonia, nitrites and nitrates that organic waste can release. A buildup of these compounds will upset the chemical balance of the water, and will ultimately be harmful to your fish and other aquatic life in the aquarium.

Protein skimming is a natural and chemical-free way of purifying the water and helping to maintain a healthy environment in your aquarium.
