Red Sea Berlin X2 Turbo Protein Skimmer

Editor's Review


Red Sea Berlin X2 Turbo Protein SkimmerDescription
Collection Cup with built in foam-view window

Patented window built into the side of the skimmer neck allows for accurate real time evaluation of foam production.

The Triple-Pass Principle

Red Sea’s patented Triple-Pass maximizes the water air contact time inside the skimmer reaction chamber stripping the aquarium water for even the smallest traces of organic pollutants, while minimizing the external dimensions and footprint of the product. By forcing the water-air mixture along a circuitous route, the Berlin X2 achieves a total surface area equal to that of much larger conventional skimmers.

Benefits

* Highly efficient skimming action
* Removes even the smallest traces of organic pollutants from aquarium water
* Super compact design
* Minimal loss of seawater

Turbo aspirator

* NEW high performance pinwheel impeller
* Increased quantity of superfine air bubbles in homogenous air-water mixture
* Max. water throughtput: 900 lph / 225 gph
* Max. air throughtput: 300 lph / 75 gph

Hang-on-tank kit

Enables the Berlin X2 to be quickly and easily converted from in-sump to hang-on configuration, offering the user greater flexibility and customization possibilities. The hang-on-tank kits is comprised of quick-fit parts for user-friendly installation and maintenance.

Long term pollutant reduction

Tests have shown that over time the Berlin X2 is extremely effective in lowering the level of oxygen-consuming pollutants (COD/BOD) in the aquarium water.

How do we rate our skimmers?

The recommended aquarium volume ratings for the Berlin X2 have been calculated according the optimum turnover rate per aquarium type, as determined by laboratory test conducted at Red Sea. They are as follows:

* Fish tank: 1 turnover/h
* Soft Corals (LPS): 1.5-2 turnover/h
* Hard Corals (SPS): 3-4 turnover/h

    I like this skimmer. Others say it doesn’t work very well to lower your nitrates in your saltwater tank, but in my 75 gallon it does the trick. I have no problems with algae or ammonia. Kinda pricey though.

    This skimmer is ok but for the money I could have gotten a much better skimmer. It is really noisy. I have to keep the cabinet closed at all times or my saltwater tank sounds like it is about to take off.

    Don’t buy, get an AquaC if you are going to spend this kinda money. An AquaC skimmer only costs a little bit more and works much better. Like others mentioned, it is noisy.

    I had to come here and review this skimmer. It works well for my 90 gallon, but I wouldn’t put it on anything bigger. It does make some nice smelly foam and keeps my saltwater clear. Bought from marine depot on sale a while back.

    Red Sea skimmers suck. Don’t buy red sea!
