IceCap skimmers are constructed of sturdy PVC and high quality acrylic to ensure amazing performance and reliability. One of the biggest benefits to us here at Reef2Land is every part of these skimmers disassembles for easy cleaning and maintenance. The body shape of each skimmer maximizes the air/water mixture, producing a skimmate that is nearly all DOC. All of these components, together with IceCap being distributed by CoralVue, one of the top names in the industry, should put these skimmers at the top of the list for any hobbyist.
YCA Protein Skimmers are one of the most vital parts to keeping any successful saltwater or reef aquarium. For the particles that are small enough to pass through natural filtration, that is what protein skimmers are for. The dissolved organic compounds (such as decaying food and waste particles) attach to the large amounts of bubbles produced by the pump. It is then pushed to the top of the neck, where the bubbles pop, and the waste is left in the collection cup. These devices also play a significant role in tank health by adding dissolved oxygen to your aquarium. Protein Skimmers help maintain optimum water conditions for all of your tank inhabitants.
