A protein skimmer stops waste from breaking down into toxic chemicals.
It prevents many serious, common aquarium problems and keeps
filters cleaner. Essential for saltwater tanks, especially with
wet/dry filter systems. A protein skimmer is a fairly simple
design with an important job. Its special designed chamber provides
a column of controlled bubbles. The surface tension from these
bubbles attracts organic waste and carries it through the column;
then it's "skimmed" into a collection cup for removal.
ASM skimmers are one of the most efficient skimmers available at any price. Each
ASM protein skimmer comes complete with 1 or more Sedra pumps, which utilize needle-wheel
technology for the finest bubbles. Very comparable to the high dollar
Euro-Reef skimmers, every unit is hand-made, they are easy to install, you simply
place inside your sump, plug it in, and adjust the overflow rate. What more can
we say, the ASM G Series are great skimmers. We use them ourselves!
