The Tunze 9001 protein skimmer makes a great choice for tanks between 5 and 40 gallons. This high quality skimmer from Tunze, a world renowned manufacturer, will help any reef tank look its absolute best. By using microbubbles to remove organic material before it has a chance to break down, the Tunze 9001 skimmer can help to keep levels of harmful compounds low and reduce various types of unwanted algae as well as improve coral and fish health. As an added bonus, a protein skimmer will also help to oxygenate the water.
This skimmer is designed to be “plug and play” right out of the box and attaches easily to glass up to ⅜” thick using the included magnet. This makes for an unobtrusive installation without messy brackets that can distract from the appearance of the tank. Some of the features of this skimmer include a self cleaning impeller and an air flow silencer for amazingly quiet operation. Its 4.3” by 2.5” footprint makes it a great choice for most All in One tanks with a rear or side filtration chamber. Tunze skimmers are designed to blend into the aesthetics of today’s modern tanks, rather than having to be hidden from sight.
In addition to their plug and play simplicity and modern design, what sets Tunze skimmers apart from other brands on the market is their use of flash skimming technology. Two of the main advantages of this technology are that the air and water mixture is controlled automatically, which prevents the skimmer from overfoaming, as well as increased efficiency of the skimmer, allowing for more organic material to be removed. This efficiency is due to the tiny size of the air bubbles produced, 0.1mm-0.3mm in diameter, when compared to other nano skimmers available on the market today. These tiny bubbles also make it exceptionally quiet and energy efficient, only drawing about 2.5w of power.
For reefers looking for an efficient, quiet and self adjusting protein skimmer for their nano or other small tank, the Tunze 9001 skimmer makes a standout choice.
