The Reef Glass Nano Skimmer is a high quality air pump driven protein skimmer specially designed for nano reef aquariums. It is based on the traditional air-driven method using limewood airstone with many improvements. The unique design is very simple, yet elegant and functional.

Features

  • Skimmer body made of high quality Pyrex glass. The unique design eliminates the need for a side drain, making it simpler and more robust. Made, cut and fire polished in the USA.
  • Polycarbonate mount that fits most rimless and rimmed tanks. The design incorporates options for back and front screws, adding versatility. Also, made in the USA.
  • Small size, ideal for nano reef aquariums up to 30 gallons.
  • Straight shape allows for easy replacement of the limewood airstone from the top of the skimmer without removing it from the mount.
  • Includes limewood airstone, two-hole rubber stopper, tubing and all necessary connectors. All you need is an air pump that can deliver around 1 L/min of air and a waste container (good opportunity to recycle a plastic bottle).
  • Silent operation.
  • Does not add heat to your nano reef aquarium, unlike Venturi and needle wheel pump skimmers.
  • Improves water oxygenation.
  • Dimensions: 1.25"x 1.25"x 11.5"
  • Fits tanks with thickness up to 1"
A sufficient air pump is required and sold separately. We recommend the Marina 200 Air Pump or similiar size (1 L/min) air pump to deliver air into the protein skimmer.

The Reef Glass Nano Skimmer fits in the following aquariums:

REVIEW
This is a great little Nano skimmer. Reminds me of my first airstone driven skimmer. Takes a while to dial in, but then just skims away! If you have a quiet air pump then the skimmer makes very little noise. I use an old Tetra Luft pump and it is very quiet!

Issue with skimmer...

REVIEW
I am having an issue with the skimmer where if the top is too tight it doesn't produce any air bubbles rising to the top of the skimmer, but if I loosen the top a bit to let airflow from the top seep in the bubbles end up rising to the top of the skimmer. I checked and changed all other possible par...Read More

PROS
Very small footprint. Works well. Simple to clean and adjust.
REVIEW
Works great for nano tanks. Produces a lighter skimmate however a lot of dark sludge will build up inside the tube itself. Really like being able to run line to a big mason jar and empty every couple days.

Amazed by how well it works

REVIEW
This thing works very well. Very easy to use. Simple to install. All you need is an air pump and those are pretty cheap and a container for it to drain into (milk jug or water jug works very well with some modifications).

Size and adjustability
CONS
Can't buy replacement parts. Only air blocks
REVIEW
I really like the compact size of this skimmer for my nano reefs. Only down side is that you can't buy individual parts. My brother broke the glass tube one one of mine and now I have to buy a whole new skimmer. It would be better if you could buy parts separate.
