The Skimmer Evolved.

Let’s give a warm welcome to the NuvoSkim DC, the industry’s first, energy efficient, direct current powered nano protein skimmer.

Fewer adjustments, remarkably quiet and ultra-fast break in time; the NuvoSkim DC recirculating protein skimmer effectively removes dissolved organics, increases oxygen levels, and creates a cleaner & clearer aquarium.

Along with the engine overhaul the NuvoSkim DC took on a secondary air silencer, vibration reducing rubber feet, enlarged air intake and a new convex lid for drier skim. All these features unite to create Innovative Marine`s most efficient skimmer yet, delivering a new era of uncompromising design and performance.

Features:

  • DC Powered Needle Wheel
  • Dual Silencers (Internal & External)
  • Noise Reducing Rubber Feet
  • Enlarged Air Silencer Box
  • Drop In Convenience
  • Bubble Plate Diffuser
  • Suspended Pump Design
  • Low Profile Cup Design
  • Needle Wheel Impeller
  • Airline Management
  • Convex Lid

Q
Would this work in the JBJ 45?
Asked : Dec 21, 2018
By : Tim Nemeth, NJ
 
 
 
A
I'm sure it would since it fits in the Nuvo 10. However I would recommend something larger such as the midsize or something bigger than that like the Aquamax HOB.

REVIEW
Had this skimmer for 3 months now. The 3 stars are for how the unit is built, and not the performance. It works for me, but skimmer performance seems to be a very subjective thing on small skimmers for nano tanks.

Here’s some things that I think could use improvement on the skimmer: (1) ...Read More

Good skimmer and fits great in my IM Lagoon 25

PROS
Fits in IM tanks, Good skim, no micro bubbles
CONS
Pump was in two pieces when received, but after some work I was able to reassemble
REVIEW
I am enjoying this skimmer. Haven't had issues with micro bubbles and it produces good skim. Only issue I've had so far was when I received it the pump was separated in two pieces. Once I snapped it back together it worked fine.

REVIEW
After a new lid was shipped to replace the busted one, the skimmer died altogether. Looking further at it, the power supply isn't a very good one (not UL listed). The motor obviously has lived a short life. Again, back to the warranty process and another few days before a new motor shows up... I liv...Read More

Have been running this for a couple weeks and really like it. Pulls a nice brown skin paired with a bio pellet reactor. It does make a little noise but I am yet to have any issues with microbubbles.

REVIEW
Looks like it was drop shipped from IM. Lid came damaged but IM is sorting that out right now. A small zip tie on the air intake hose helps with retention. A barbed fitting would be nice. Make sure to check the pump hoses and install as it may have shifted during shipment. As for noise, it's noticea...Read More

REVIEW
Ordered this back in December, it initially came broken from the pump detached from the body, got a replacement 2 weeks after and have been using it ever since, it’s quiet and produces somewhat skim, but my major issue is with not letting the water to the third chamber pass fast enough so I have t...Read More
