Simplicity DC Protein Skimmer - Simplicity Aquatics


Simplicity DC Skimmers use an adjustable DC pump and needle wheel, regarded as one of the best methods to shred air and water in order to create micro-fine bubbles. The long contact time between the water and the air that our skimmers provide is key to successful protein skimming. The bubble plate, wedge pipe indicator, air intake adjustment and controllable pump allow you to achieve the best performance for your unique system.

Great Skimmer

It was easy to install. It has a smaller footprint than my Reef Octopus and does a good job. I’m happy with my purchase.

Very good

These are by far the best wallet happy skimmer. It competes with all the high end 3x more expensive. It skims mud, it's quiet and easy to dial in. I used one on a 90 and another on a 150. My corals and fishes are happy. I don't dose anything.

Works like a champ

This skimmer is consistent, efficient, and simple. It stays relatively quiet, plus it is pretty inexpensive compared to other ones while doing the same job. Once broken in and tuned/dialed to the perfect setting, you never have to touch it again.
