Red Sea Max 130 Aquarium Surface Skimmer Upgrade Information

Red Sea Max 130D Surface Skimmer Upgrade

Red Sea`s Surface Skimmer is an upgrade for the MAX 130.

Highly effective, the surface skimmer increases the rate at which surface water is pulled into the filter, reduces surface film and dust by removing water from the area of the aquarium where most organic waste is found.

Experience Level: Expert

Comments: Works awesome.. only set back is it fits a little loose in the existing filter channels... easily solved by checking on your water evaporation since this tank holds a low amount of water to begin with...realistically only about 28 gallons...although the water surface is very clean and clear... i would have to say yes on this buy!!

Comments: This is a piece of junk. The basket will not stay locked in at times is will float and then drop to the bottom of the tank There needs to be something of a solid lock and also a tighter fit to the slide part it is very very loose and easy to slide

Comments: Works perfectly. Adjustable so you can draw off the top or from futher down in the tank. I no longer have that nasty film on top of my water. This skimmer upgrade was worth every penny. Easy to install and no more worries about ammonia spikes due to waste on the top of the water.

Comments: It's a tad expensive for what it is (material wise), but a much needed upgrade. Removes surface scum so you don't have to keep a powerhead pointed at the surface.
