The AquaMaxx Hang on Back Series - XC (HOB-XC) protein skimmer is the larger brother of the popular AquaMaxx HOB-1. It features an incredibly responsive collection cup and an amazingly powerful submersible pump. It is rated up to 90 gallons in a design thin and light enough to be placed on a small to medium size saltwater aquarium.
The AquaMaxx HOB-XC 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-XC 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 protein skimmer will help to ensure that success.
AquaMaxx protein skimmers were designed from the ground up with the hobbyist in mind. AquaMaxx HOB Series 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.
HIGH-QUALITY ITALIAN COBALT AQUATICS PUMP
The pump is what many consider as the heart of a protein skimmer. The HOB-XC has a heart of a thoroughbred by utilizing an Italian Cobalt Aquatics skimmer pump. This high-quality pump is designed specifically for protein skimmer applications and is ultra quiet and reliable.
DEDICATED HEATER COLUMN
Heaters can be quite an eye sore in aquariums. The new HOB-XC comes with a dedicated heater column so you can hide your heater inside the protein skimmer. The constant flow of water through the skimmer also helps heat disperse throughout your aquarium resulting in a more stable temperature.
The AquaMaxx HOB-XC protein skimmer utilizes a superbly crafted Italian Cobalt Aquatics needlewheel pump to vigorously remove waste from your fish or reef tank. Cobalt Aquatic pumps are well-regarded for their efficiency to move air and water. Combining these dynamic pumps with AquaMaxx protein skimmers saves users considerable energy.
All of our products are backed by a 60-day return policy although the skimmers will also carry a 1-year manufacturer warranty from AquaMaxx. Each skimmer will include detailed instructions and diagrams to help hobbyists get up and running immediately.
