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.

Experience Level: Intermediate

Comments: The skimmer on this unit is fantastic and is pulling dark green gunk from my tank after only day. A few microbubbles make it into the fuge side, but none get into the tank. The pump and aerator are both off the shelf parts and easily replaceable if they ever die on you. It is pretty quiet, the majority of the noise coming from the air inlet. The refugium: Nice size and mostly well made. There is no top and I found that the bubbles that escape the skimmer into the fuge pop and make a mess so I will be fashioning a top for it. The little peg and screw that adjust how far off the tank it sits are cheap and feel insufficient. The weight on the back of the tank is a bit of a concern too ... I will probably make a little stand just so I don't worry about it. Overall a pretty good purchase and I am happy.
