This item has been discontinued.

CAD Lights The Newly released CAD Lights Conic protein skimmers has many features that reef hobbyists of all types desire: high quality materials and components, professional craftsmanship, energy efficiency, aggressive performance, perfect sized bubbles, air draw, silent operation, durability etc.. These were all major factors during our designing of all 3 sizes of CAD Lights` Conic skimmers. These skimmer bodies are liquid-mold-casted Acrylic into solid seamless tubes that are incredibly durable. Comes already fully assembled so it is ready to use the moment you receive it!

New upgrades and features include: Air Intake/Silencer is fully adjustable by 360 degree turns for easy access, extra clearance allowing unrestricted air intake and even ozone inlet. Air intake is also completely removable for easy cleaning and changing if needed. Lock-tite pressure control system features fully sealed drain pipe for consistent pressure control that stabilizes fluctuations within the reaction chamber.

While Air draw is crucial to performance, the other main component is Bubble size and quality. CAD Lights` TIA Air injection systems produce super fine and very high quality bubbles for the high efficiency in attachment to DOCs.

  • Extra insulated to feature silent operations, only 5 Decibels over audible sound.

REVIEW
I'm very happy and excited with my new skimmer. It immediately started pulling dark skimmate out. No break in time at all. It's pulling out in a day what my old skimmer would pull out in a week. Also its very quiet.
