Tunze Comline DOC Protein Skimmer 9004 Information




The new Tunze Comline® filters opens the way for compact aquarium components designed for internal operation, are ultra-functional and are highly-sophisticated. The system creates a natural atmosphere in the aquarium at a minimum size. The goal always remains the same, more performance and less space.

The Comline® DOC Skimmer 9004 is designed for use in seawater mixed aquariums / soft coral aquariums up to 250 litres (66 USgal.) or sensitive reef biotopes with stone corals up to 150 litres (40 USgal.). It works based on the TUNZE® Flash Skimming principle, water supply is provided via an efficient surface intake system with bacteria film removal. Thus, the system can also be used as a “standalone solution” in the aquarium. The featured TUNZE® Foamer generates many fine air bubbles with a diameter between 0.1 and 0.3mm, which ensures particularly silent operation.

The “Flash skimming” principle enables highly efficient foam production.
Principle: Protein-rich surface water is mixed with water thoroughly in the TUNZE® Foamer. On the surface of the air bubbles forming, pollutants such as protein, cellulose, dead cells, etc. are adsorbed immediately, the air bubbles are very fine, with a diameter between 0.1 and 0.3mm. The water/air mixture is expanded and stabilized in the skimmer cup, the water returns to the aquarium, and the protein-loaded air bubbles reach the skimmer cup reactor. The patented anti-overfoaming system intermediate chamber with phase water prevents the skimmer from overfoaming and controls the skimmer performance, depending on the water level and organic load.
The particularly high efficiency of the “flash skimming” principle compared to large skimmers with long contact time is obtained because the substances adsorbed by the air bubbles are not released again, thus they don`t return to the aquarium water again.

Includes magnet mounts for aquariums up to 3/8" thick.

Specifications:
  • Dimensions: 4.3" x 3.5" x 12"
  • Water Lever Required: Approx. 8.86" - 9.65"
  • Air Output: Approx. 150 L/H
  • Energy Consumption: 4W
  • Tank Size: 15-65 gallons
Features:
  • Surface intake with bacteria film removal.
  • Skimmer cup, 0.2l (.05 USgal.) volume, also accommodates the foam reactor, easy to remove.
  • Attachment with a patented magnet holder for a glass thickness of up to 3/8".
  • Intermediate chamber with patented anti-overfoaming system.
  • TUNZE® Foamer 9004.040, high air output and low energy consumption (4W).
  • Bubble-free outgoing water.
  • New “Comline® Design”: comfortable use, elegant and unobtrusive in the aquarium.
  • Air flow regulation and silencer for an exceptionally quiet operation.
  • Made in Germany, 2-year manufacturer`s warranty

Comments: Hard to gage performance so far in my NUVO 30L tank as I have a lot of sand particles in the water which the skimmer was not removing until I put some cloudy water treatment and now it is pulling more. But this skimmer does not fit in my tank compartment so had to glue the magnet on the side of the skimmer and put it in the pump side of the NUVO where it crowds the pump return lines. I am awaiting a ghost skimmer made for the compartment where it will sit next to the filter caddy and perhaps do a better job. It also tends to tilt and move where it is now.

Comments: I was quite impressed with this skimmer. It started pulling gunk out of my 30 gallon tank in literally an hour or so and has continued to do so since then. The collection cup is a bit small and gets filled rather quickly, but I am very satisfied. Oh, and it is super quiet as well. You won't even hear it running. Two fins up!

Experience Level: Beginner


Comments: I've been using this for many months now in the back compartment of an all in one JBJ rimless 45 gallon (not the cube). The Marine Depot "does it fit" video shows it going in the main overflow compartment but I was able to squeeze it into the next compartment over (barely!)by turning it 90 degrees and haven't noticed any difference in functionality. By moving it over one compartment you can still have both overflow filters going. I also use this in conjunction with an auto top off, which is really a must for this skimmer. As this is a surface skimmer, I can usually tell when my auto top off reservoir is empty because the water level will drop enough to where the skimmer makes a sucking noise, but other than that it is very quiet. Produces some thick green goop. I have a cheaper skimmer on a 10 gal nano and the difference is night and day. Highly recommend this skimmer.

Comments: This replaced my desktop Ghost skimmer. Already blows it out of the water after 4 days of starting. Quick break-in period, no microbubbles, quieter, looks much more sleeker. Just overall much better product and it works perfect on my IM 30L. There's a reason this website uses Tunze skimmers on the SR_80 build instead of the IM skimmers...

Comments: I have the 9012 and in a IM SR-120. It fits perfectly in the compartment that the ghost skimmer is designed for. I have used the ghost in this tank which I absolutely hated. This unit in a matter of hours began pulling good skimmate, its super quiet and superbly built. For the same price as the IM Ghost, there is no comparison. I would highly recommend to anyone that needs a compact skimmer, with good performance.
