Current USA Fission Nano-Skimmer

CU08100

This item has been discontinued.

Current USA The Fission Nano-Skimmer is the smallest protein skimmer in the world, measuring only 6.5" high and 2" in diameter. Powered by an efficient air injection pump, the patented design rips bubbles into a vortex foam froth, breaking apart proteins and organics, removing them from your nano-home. Easy-to-install, this nano-skimmer packs the power of fission into pint sized perfection.

Specifications

  • Recommended for aquariums up to 12 gallons.
  • Step into a world that fits in the palm of your hand
  • Power pump—Air injection submersible pump pushes 84 gallons per hour through the skimmer, mixing bubbles and organics in a tornado fashion. The result: a dry foam froth that will make you go yuck!
  • Patended design—Unique submersible design fits into almost any nano-style aquarium system. Put the pump next to it, beside it, or under it, it fits almost anywhere.
  • Pint size – The compact size of 6.5" H x 2" Dia. makes it easy to hide in tanks and filters.
Whats included:
Each skimmer includes a submersible venturi pump, protein skimmer, suction cups for mounting, hanging kit and two connection elbows.

protein skimmer

REVIEW
This is a terrible skimmer. It is so sensative to water level and just generates micro-bubbles. I took this out of my tank within 2 weeks and smashed it with a brick!

Spare Me

REVIEW

Trash Skimmer

REVIEW
One of the worst skimmers I've ever purchased. After weeks of playing with different configurations:nothing. Either it skims too wet or doesn't skim at all. The BioCube Protein Skimmer works better and is about the same price or lower.

REVIEW
