DFC Series

Controllable In-Sump Protein Skimmer

Introducing a bevy of new features focused on precision control, high performance and appealing aesthetics, the DFC series skimmers are just another example of how AquaMaxx provides hobbyists with the best protein skimmers for the money.

Where to Buy

High Performance

The core of AquaMaxx protein skimmers is the high-quality Shark needle wheel pump. The Italian made Sicce brand pumps are modified by AquaMaxx to produce optimal size bubbles for highly efficient protein skimmer. These pumps have been powering AquaMaxx skimmers since the very beginning because of the long lasting and quiet operation combined with quality construction.

First introduced with the ConeS series skimmers, the DFC skimmers contain the highly efficient bubble chambers that feature custom diffusors to reduce turbulence and create a stable laminar flow inside of the skimmer which helps get more waste out of your aquarium.

Superior Design

DFC skimmers utilize a one-piece acrylic body which is molded into a beautiful wine glass shape. The shape is what smoothly guides and condenses the foam inside the skimmer for effective removal of waste via the collection cup. Furthermore, the specially designed dome on the collection cups reduce resistance as the foam rises and falls into the collection cup for maximum waste removal.

AquaMaxx has included both a highly sensitive gate valve type outlet and the first ever adjustable air silencer which gives you precise control over the foam level inside of your skimmer.

Computer-precision engineered and outfitted with the latest filtration technology, AquaMaxx protein DFC series protein skimmers will deliver the performance and value you are looking for in a skimmer.
