Controllable In-Sump Protein Skimmer

Featuring a controllable needle-wheel pump and an exclusive design that promotes bubble re-circulation while dramatically reducing bubble spillage.

Where to Buy

High Performance

AquaMaxx ConeS DRC Skimmers feature high-quality Shark DC pumps. Each Shark DC pump motor block is fitted with a needle wheel impeller, capable of drawing in and chopping up significantly more air to achieve the optimum bubble size for protein extraction.

These pump and protein skimmer combinations deliver unprecedented performance and reliability. Accumulated protein and organics will efficiently be removed from your tank so that you can focus less on maintenance and more on enjoying your piece of the reef.

Superior Design

AquaMaxx ConeS DRC Series Protein Skimmers are designed from the ground up with the hobbyist in mind. A built-in air intake silencer with a double expansion chamber reduces noise for near-silent operation. The hybrid-cone design maximizes the size of the reaction chamber and allows skimmate to smoothly rise into the collection cup. A Quick-Precise adjustment valve makes fast tuning of the skimmer water level a breeze when controlling wet/dry foam production. An ergonomic collection cup handle allows for comfortable and easy cleaning.

Perhaps the most innovative aspect of the new DRC line is its exclusive design which promotes bubble re-circulation while dramatically reducing bubble spillage. The recycling of free bubbles increases contact time between air and water in the chamber, allowing for more protein extraction. This revolutionary design evenly distributes the flow of air and water through the flow plate, which improves overall skimmer performance.
