Red Sea Berlin X2 Turbo Protein Skimmer Information




Collection Cup with built in foam-view window

Patented window built into the side of the skimmer neck allows for accurate real time evaluation of foam production.

The Triple-Pass Principle

Red Sea’s patented Triple-Pass maximizes the water air contact time inside the skimmer reaction chamber stripping the aquarium water for even the smallest traces of organic pollutants, while minimizing the external dimensions and footprint of the product. By forcing the water-air mixture along a circuitous route, the Berlin X2 achieves a total surface area equal to that of much larger conventional skimmers.

Benefits
  • Highly efficient skimming action
  • Removes even the smallest traces of organic pollutants from aquarium water
  • Super compact design
  • Minimal loss of seawater
Turbo aspirator
  • NEW high performance pinwheel impeller
  • Increased quantity of superfine air bubbles in homogenous air-water mixture
  • Max. water throughtput: 900 lph / 225 gph
  • Max. air throughtput: 300 lph / 75 gph
Hang-on-tank kit

Enables the Berlin X2 to be quickly and easily converted from in-sump to hang-on configuration, offering the user greater flexibility and customization possibilities. The hang-on-tank kits is comprised of quick-fit parts for user-friendly installation and maintenance.

Long term pollutant reduction

Tests have shown that over time the Berlin X2 is extremely effective in lowering the level of oxygen-consuming pollutants (COD/BOD) in the aquarium water.

How do we rate our skimmers?

The recommended aquarium volume ratings for the Berlin X2 have been calculated according the optimum turnover rate per aquarium type, as determined by laboratory test conducted at Red Sea. They are as follows:
  • Fish tank: 1 turnover/h
  • Soft Corals (LPS): 1.5-2 turnover/h
  • Hard Corals (SPS): 3-4 turnover/h


Specifications

Dimensions: 13.7" x 10.6"

Height required is 22" for cup removal.

Comments: I purchased this skimmer 3 years ago from the LFS where I bought my tank+stand+sump from when I first started out with SW. So far I have gone through 3 impellers @ $30 each (half the cost of the original purchase price) for replacement. The 3rd one has since broken and instead of replacing I used marine epoxy from home depot to fix it and its still in service. However as mentioned before, every single time I have had to power this skimmer off, it will not come back on without opening the pump and freeing the impeller. The build quality on the rest of the skimmer is ok, but since you can not upgrade the pumps, I would and am currently, looking at a different brand skimmer for my 120 gallon tank.

Comments: I am very disappointed with this skimmer. The pump will not restart after a power failure. It must be disassembled to get the impeller to turn. Red Sea did send two new impellers and a new pump, but it still doesn't work.

Comments: The pump that is included is junk. The Red Sea Berlin skimmer body is good quality and collection cup is easy to remove and clean. This is a good skimmer for the beginer because it is inexpensive and can remove a decent amount of waste, but don't waste your money or time with the Turbo model.

Comments: It is very simple to put together but has a huge I mean huge powerhead that will stand out on your tank. Difficult to balance out the water flow and the air vavle I had trouble and also still havent got it to work properly. Collection gets full too fast if you dont set it up right.

Comments: Expected way more from this unit. You will see orp go up but any bioload brings it back down and starts all over again. At 55watts of power consumption there are better skimmers that draw less and clean more and can handle bio-loads without dropping. I only had it on a 75 gallon reef? Using a bermuda aquatics small 3c skimmer with a dolphin 50 watt 650gal/hr pump the orp shot up 15 points and continuing as I write this.
