Manufacturer Info

CPR Aquatic Aquarium Supplies
In Arcata, located in Northern California, the sea is a way of life. From the advanced Marine Biology department at Humboldt State University, just up the hill from CPR’s headquarters, to Humboldt Bay, about a mile west, CPR is nestled in a perfect environment to develop equipment for marine aquariums. CPR was started in a small garage in 1987 to produce biological filters for local aquarists. People who used CPR filters were impressed by the high quality and affordable prices. Word spread and the company grew. Since then, CPR has expanded to a 10,000 sq. ft. production facility and has developed many innovative products over the years. CPR is incorporating new ideas and technologies all the time. Their goal is to allow aquarists to place the highest performing products in their tanks at reasonable prices.

“Effective, with babying”
4.0

The pre skimmer is more attractive once underwater than I thought it would be, thankfully. It is highly effective at keeping oil slick from occurring. I have a 55gallon show tank and every third day I have to either add water or adjust the skimmer intake height due to evaporation. Lastly, keep in...Read More

“Necessary Component”
5.0

Please do not run a Bak-Pak without this Pre-skimmer. It does a great job of taking the water from the surface. If you don't have an ATO, you may need to adjust the depth of the Pre-skimmer every day or two unless you stay vigilant with water levels. I would not ever use my Bak-Pak without it.

“GREAT PRODUCT”
4.0

The box improves the quality of the skim by taking the water from the surface where most pollution is located.

“Two changes necessary”
4.0

I've been using the Bak-Pak pre-skimmer for two years. It is a necessary addition to the skilter because it skims off the surface water, something the skilter will not do on it own. It works great, but needs two modifications. The first would be to remove the foam that covers the intake and replace ...Read More

“Pulls out from surface but...”
3.0

This does a good job, however, it is bothersome to have to adjust it with the water level. Snails, crabs, etc. will find their way in it and behind as well. It also does take up a lot of room around the pump. I got it to keep out seahorse tails and for that it does a fine job so.....
