Aqua Medic Turboflotor 1000 Blue Hang-On Skimmer

AQ1115

This item has been discontinued.

Aqua Medic USA The Turboflotor Blue 1000 is designed for use as a Hang-On skimmer, with only the OR1200 Pump and the I/O fittings residing inside the aquarium, or as a freestanding Skimmer inside or outside the sump. At only 18.5” high, it is sized to fit nearly every standard aquarium cabinet. All the characteristic Turboflotor details are here, from the conical riser inside the foam cup and one-handed adjustable foam production to the Needle Wheel technology and Ceramic bearings for quiet operation. But this is a great new design that gives you the one-pump hang-on convenience of a T1000 Multi SL and enough "skimming power" for a 125 gallon Aquarium. The new shape creates a larger volume for more skimming capacity as well as skimmate collection. We think you are going to love this one! The T1000 Blue is manufactured using high quality acrylic.

REVIEW
I received my skimmer and little trouble assembling it. I plugged it in and in about 30 seconds the resivoir was full. After calling Marine Depot and getting the # for Aqua Medic, I called Aqua Medic and was told this was normal, It would take a few days for the skimmer break in period. After explai...Read More

REVIEW
i have been running this a few months now, and can highly recommend it. this is a very good skimmer for the most part. the only issue i have found is that the way the collection cup just wedges on top can leak if you dont seat it well. other than that, it adjusts easy with the turn of a lever, and ...Read More

Well Worth the $

REVIEW
I've had this skimmer running in my 70G tank for just over 5 weeks now and I have to say that for the money, this is the best dough I've spent. I previously was using a Tunze9015 skimmer (3 x the $) and it pulled less than 10% of what this pulls out of my tank. Easy to adjust, great service from A...Read More

Decent Skimmer - Nothing Epic

reviewerbadge
REVIEW
The Turboflotor Blue 1000 is an easy skimmer to install and configure in a wide variety of aquarium settings. It has a strong needle/mesh wheel pump. I have had the skimmer running roughly 5 days and it still is not producing any decent skimmate. My guess is that it still is breaking in.
