Current USA Fission Recirculating Skimmer 150 gal. (with pump) 24 inch x 4.75in Information




  • Removes dissolved organics and waste products with extreme efficiency
  • Greatly benifits water quality and clarity
  • Increases oxygen levels and stabilizes pH
  • Reduces Nitrate, Phosphate and Nitrite levels
Performance Cubed
Powered by a patent pending paddle-mixing injection system, the Fission Skimmer violently mixes air with water—creating a column of millions of tiny microbubbles. These tiny microbubbles provide an enormous surface area for the adsorption of organic compounds and waste products. The impellers unique paddle plates remain rigid during rotation, pushing more water and increasing contact time while still hacking those bubbles into a dense foam froth. Paddle plate impellers create up to 3 times the amount of microbubbles and contact time compared to other needle-wheel type skimmers.

Functionality Squared
Designed for in-sump only applications, the skimmer inlet fitting attaches to any primary 1/2" water flow line such as a powerhead, canister filter or external pump. Water tight pump unions provide easy disassembly for pump cleaning and allow the pump to be used in or out of the water. Simply connect the skimmer inlet to a powerhead or existing plumbing line, adjust the water flow to the correct flowrate and skim-away.

System Singular
Fission skimmers are built for performance with unprecented precision to detail. Cell-cast acrylic body and clean molded connection parts make it a unit that will provide years of outstanding performance. The collection cup is easy-to-remove and has a rubber grommet connection assembly that ensures a snug fit. A fully adjustable flow valve completely allows you to control the water height within the skimmer body—maximizing foam collection. The drain port in the collection cup makes it easy to collect the foam and drain it away from your system. The microbubble trap and micron sock capture any tiny errant bubbles. To keep family members happy, the paddle mixing-injection system includes an air silencer to keep things quiet and peaceful.

What`s Included
Fission Recirculating skimmers include a collection cup with drain port, recirculating pump (660 gph), paddle-wheel injection system with ceramic shaft and paddle impeller, air inlet silencer, molded microbubble reducing trap, micron bubble filter sock (100 micron) and instructions.

Comments: The skimmer is not a high grade acrylic, but it does the job well. Possibly better than my ev 180 and not as good as my 30" LifeReef. You need to put a 45 inside the chamber, put a shim in the cheep pump to make it quiet, and keep the bubble trap off to make it a performer.

Comments: This skimmer has begun to overflow despite getting cleaned a week prior. Last month, I returned from work one day to find water on my hardwood floor and Persian (from Iraq) rug. I unplugged the skimmer and cleaned it according to manuf recommendations. Since then, I cleaned the skimmer weekly and adjusted the flow rate daily. Despite constant monitoring/adjusting the skimmer seemed to be working ok. This morning, I woke up to find a similar puddle on the floor (despite thoroughly cleaning the skimmer just 4 days ago) so I unplugged the skimmer and now I'm in the market for another one. Hopefully my rug and hardwood floor won't be damaged.

Comments: I just placed my new unit in service on Friday evening. This morning Tuesday I checked the unit and it was making a loud rattling noise. I turned it off an this evening checked the recirculation pump. The trust bearing on the impeller was broken off and rattling around on the shaft.

Comments: Cheap, Cheap, and did I mention it's CHEAP!!! Quality build - I could have made a better unit using a plastic pinic cup. Constantly dialing in to adjust flow every hour and inconsistent foaming. Recirculating Pump LEAKS! They say it is both external and in sump...IT's definately in sump! IT WILL LEAK so don't risk it externally. Barely foams up, worst skimmer on the market bar-none. HIGHLY WOULD NOT RECOMMEND!

Comments: I wouldn't buy another for $5.00. Barely works, and if/when recirculating pump stops skimmer becomes a water fountain. Emailed Current-USA and their response was that I should buy a venturi pump rated for less gph then recommended to make it work good. Hate this piece of junk.

Comments: This product seems to work as far as skimming the water goes, but unless you want a jet engine in your living I would recommend against it. The powerhead Current has supplied with the skimmer has a cheap version of a needle wheel in it which causes extreme vibrations when operated. I have quite a bit of experience with marine products and this is the loudest skimmer Ive hear. It is next to a 3500 gph external pump and a cheaper 2x 250 Metal Halide ballast, and is much louder than both of them, even from the other room. Moreover, you cannot return it at full price because apparently this is how it is "supposed" to work! All this and I cannot even get a call back from Current to troubleshoot.
