Coralife Super Skimmer-Needle Wheel

Editor's Review


The Coralife Super Skimmer is a high performance foam fractionator designed with a patented needle-wheel impeller and aspirating venturi. An improved, energy saving Posi-Flow pump increases the performance of this skimmer without increasing the power demand. The needle-wheel system creates a spiraling vortex of water and micro-bubbles inside the reaction chamber. These bubbles attract fine proteins and organic compounds, and deposit them in the collection cup resulting in a clean and healthy aquarium environment. The Super Skimmer offers flexible configuration, allowing hang-on tank mounting or in-sump setup. Hang-on mounting bracket will fit up to a 1-1/8″ thick tank moulding (always keep a minimum 8″ clearance between the aquarium and the wall). Other features include: easy twist collection cup, water level adjustment dial, and bubble production diffuser.

    Great skimmer but a little difficult to get dialed in. I would adjust the flow and then come back to see that it was overflowing. Then I would turn it down and it doesn’t make any foam. I think this was mostly from breaking in the protein skimmer. Once it broke it, it actually was effective and took a bunch of crud out of my tank.

    bought this online from marine depot. decent skimmer for the price. needle wheel can be a pain to clean but worth it because it will start to make more foam again after cleaning.

    As others noted it was difficult to break in and took a while. Overall a decent skimmer but very loud. Definitely want to put this under your aquarium stand if you can.
