Nyos 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 skimmer pump. It is then pushed to the top of the skimmer 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.
