Is it a Protein Skimmer or Power Filter? Both! Meet the Compact 2-in-1 Coralife Marine Filter


If you've been in the reef hobby as long as we have, you've seen a lot of filter and protein skimmer ideas come and go. It takes time and testing to see if an idea is ready for prime time.

The concept of a power filter combined with a protein skimmer has been a frequent garage DIY project with handy reefers. There was even a commercially produced filter-skimmer combo that kind of worked but never really hit the mark.

Well, all that's changed with Coralife's Marine Filter with a built-in protein skimmer!

The AquaMaxx Prism Proves You Don't Have To Spend A Fortune To Get A Powerful Controllable Reef Light

The AquaMaxx Prism Proves You Don't Have To Spend A Fortune To Get A Powerful Controllable Reef Light


When shopping for an affordable LED strip light for my 22 gallon tank, pickings were slim. Most of the strip lights I looked at were low-powered and not sufficient enough to sustain the types of corals I wanted to keep. Conversely, the higher-output strips were much more pricey but lacked any real controllability.

Looking at the specs of AquaMaxx's NemoLight and Prism, they seemed to have everything I was looking for. Outputs are significantly higher than most LED strip lights (double in many cases) and the blue and white channels are programmable.
