Description

The Instant Ocean Sea Clone Protein Skimmer features an exclusive Turbo Venturi Injector System that helps remove organic waste from your aquarium. Filtered water and air are mixed in the Vortex Reaction Chamber to create a tiny tornado effect that rapidly draws dissolved wastes from aquarium water. These dissolved organic compounds are trapped and contained in the high-capacity collection chamber, where they are separated from clean water until they can be removed.

Key Benefits
  • Works in all marine aquariums to remove organic waste.
  • Two sizes for tanks up to 100 or 150 gallons.
  • Provides optimum skimming efficiency, organic compounds are trapped and contained in collection chamber until they can be removed.
  • Uses exclusive Turbo-Venturi Injector System.
  • Easy external hang-on or in-sump installation.

    Seaclone Protein Skimmer

    By on

    I've used this product for years on my saltwater fish tank. The tank is extremely heavy and this is the only protein skimmer that I have used due to the impossible task of moving the tank farther out to accomodate a different one. This protein skimmer is easy to use - and this is no reflection on Chewy - but the product itself has been made more cheaply over the years, and I have to replace it about once a year, which is disappointing. That said, I'm grateful that Chewy carries this, for a very fair price, and it arrived pretty quickly, especially with the shipping delays these days with COVID. 5 stars to Chewy!

    My tank is a 55 show live rock fish only tank. I have had 2 of these skimmers in the last 6 years. They require very little maintenance and perform better than expected. Set up is easy, dialing it in to optimum efficiency is simple and only takes about 8 hours. It only gets a little noisy when it needs serviced. That only takes me about 20 minutes every 2 months.

    Yes, it does work

    There are lots of mixed reviews on this skimmer. I bought it for a test tank and did not want to spend a lot of money. Good news, it does skim, it will produce skim mate and in my case within a couple days. What is the secret? The pump is very weak and must be within 2 inches from the surface of the water for adequate air to mix with the water. Open the air intake all the way, then slowly turn it in until the water just starts to flow. There really isn’t enough fine control to produce the dark, thick skim mate everyone wants, but it will skim and clean your tank. Bad news. It is wicked LOUD. I would not want to be the fish that lives in a tank with this as a hang on. In the sump the There are lots of mixed reviews on this skimmer.

    NOT WORTH IT

    By on

    I love this company so SO much, however this skimmer is not good whatsoever. I had it plugged in and running for a week with no production whatsoever. My water was still the same quality with no improvement and the device itself didn't seem to be doing what it needed to do. Nothing ever came out of the top of the skimmer for me to even have to clean it. I adjusted the airflow properly every other day to see if it would fix it and no luck.

    Looking for a cheap protein skimmer it will work

    By on

    Was getting frustrated with this and wondering if I made a mistake buying it. Looked it up on line and still couldn’t get it to run right. Finally it started working and it’s been about two weeks. It’s a cheap way to go if you don’t have the extra money to spend on a good one. But it will work may be a little frustrating!

    Not good for my tank

    By on

    This skimmer is not good for my tank I’ve tried multiple times to get rid of microbubbles by tuning it and it has not worked. The Vortx throws bubbles up underneath and can never get a true vortex going

    Love this Hang on skimmer, no sump needed. Can’t wait to add my tank mates after my tank cycles removing all nitrates and other harmful elements left behind on the surface of the water .
