*New Upgrades - Current models include an upgraded bubble plate, re-designed hang-on bracket, white-silicone drain elbow, and a larger collection cup as shown in the product photos.

The AquaMaxx Hang on Back Series I (HOB-1) protein skimmer features an incredibly responsive collection cup and an amazingly powerful submersible pump. It is rated up to 75 gallons in a design thin and light enough to be placed on a nano aquarium or other small saltwater aquarium.

The AquaMaxx HOB Series I protein skimmer removes organic waste from aquarium water. It creates a strong mix of small air bubbles and turbulent water movement to force protein, waste and other materials into a collection cup for easy removal.

AquaMaxx skimmers are computer-precision engineered and utilize the latest filtration technology to deliver the performance and value you are looking for in a protein skimmer.

EASE OF USE
AquaMaxx HOB Series I protein skimmers are easy to setup and maintain. Just move the collection cup up or down to adjust the foam level to wet or dry.

Maintenance is simple. A removable collection cup makes cleaning easy. Plus, every AquaMaxx protein skimmer includes a drain fitting for hobbyists who want to setup a separate reservoir for skimmate.

Water quality and consistency is crucial to the success of a marine aquarium. An AquaMaxx HOB Series I protein skimmer will help to ensure that success.

COMPACT DESIGN
AquaMaxx protein skimmers were designed from the ground up with the hobbyist in mind. AquaMaxx HOB Series I protein skimmers have the pump placed inside the skimmer itself to save space, reduce noise and improve efficiency.

All AquaMaxx protein skimmers are computer designed. Each unit is precision-cut and made of polished cell-cast acrylic.

PERFORMANCE
The AquaMaxx HOB Series I protein skimmer relies on a superbly crafted Italian Sicce Syncra 1.0 pump and AquaMaxx needlewheel impeller to vigorously remove waste from your fish or reef tank. Sicce pumps are well-regarded for their efficiency to move air and water. Combining these dynamic pumps with AquaMaxx protein skimmers saves users considerable energy.

Q
Will skimmer work w/ Aquamaxx 22G long
Would this be good for the aquamaxx 22 G long aquarium? Would the glass thickness be okay to support this skimmer? The height I believe is 12 inches on the tank, but I know this skimmer is rated for 40G. Any other options?

A
The HOB-1 skimmer should work nicely on the 22 gallon long aquarium. The weight of the skimmer should not be a problem as the aquarium features thicker 8mm glass. As the skimmer will be over-sized, you may find that it will skim when there is a build-up of organics but may not skim if organic levels are low. This may make the skimmer seem inconsistent but is fine for the skimmer's operation.

Q
Will this fit a Nuevo fission 25 lagoon
Will it fit hanging of the back of the this tank?

Minimum tank height required is 10-7/8". Looks like the Innovative Marine 25G Fusion Lagoon is 12" tall, so it should be fine.

Q
Can 2 be used simultaneously
Will it be effective to use 2 of these on a 120 gallon tank?

A
It is fine to use two HOB-1 skimmers on a larger aquarium. The performance may not be exactly the same as there are always some variances in performance of pumps and slight variations in production. Another option would be to purchase the larger ConeS-HOB skimmer.

“so far so good”

This Skimmer is doing a great job. Assembly directions could be a little better but once plugged in it started working removing slim. Easy to adjust and cup drain is an added bonus.
