Tunze Comline DOC Protein Skimmer 9004 (9004.000)

The new Tunze Comline® filters opens the way for compact aquarium components designed for internal operation, are ultra-functional and are highly-sophisticated. The system creates a natural atmosphere in the aquarium at a minimum size. The goal always remains the same, more performance and less space.

The Comline® DOC Skimmer 9004 is designed for use in seawater mixed aquariums / soft coral aquariums up to 250 litres (66 USgal.) or sensitive reef biotopes with stone corals up to 150 litres (40 USgal.). It works based on the TUNZE® Flash Skimming principle, water supply is provided via an efficient surface intake system with bacteria film removal. Thus, the system can also be used as a “standalone solution” in the aquarium. The featured TUNZE® Foamer generates many fine air bubbles with a diameter between 0.1 and 0.3mm, which ensures particularly silent operation.

The “Flash skimming” principle enables highly efficient foam production.
Principle: Protein-rich surface water is mixed with water thoroughly in the TUNZE® Foamer. On the surface of the air bubbles forming, pollutants such as protein, cellulose, dead cells, etc. are adsorbed immediately, the air bubbles are very fine, with a diameter between 0.1 and 0.3mm. The water/air mixture is expanded and stabilized in the skimmer cup, the water returns to the aquarium, and the protein-loaded air bubbles reach the skimmer cup reactor. The patented anti-overfoaming system intermediate chamber with phase water prevents the skimmer from overfoaming and controls the skimmer performance, depending on the water level and organic load.
The particularly high efficiency of the “flash skimming” principle compared to large skimmers with long contact time is obtained because the substances adsorbed by the air bubbles are not released again, thus they don`t return to the aquarium water again.
Features:

  • Surface intake with bacteria film removal.
  • Skimmer cup, 0.2l (.05 USgal.) volume, also accommodates the foam reactor, easy to remove.
  • Attachment with a patented magnet holder for a glass thickness of up to 3/8".
  • Intermediate chamber with patented anti-overfoaming system.
  • TUNZE® Foamer 9004.040, high air output and low energy consumption (4W).
  • Bubble-free outgoing water.
  • New “Comline® Design”: comfortable use, elegant and unobtrusive in the aquarium.

  • Made in Germany, 2-year manufacturer`s warranty

REVIEW
I am writing this almost a year later so maybe things have improved. In summary, in over 50 years of aquarium keeping, this is the only aquarium product which I threw into the trash. The only thing better than the actual tossing was the feeling of relief which filled me afterward. How can I explain ...Read More

REVIEW
If you're looking for a compact skimmer that will really get the job done, I definitely recommend this skimmer. I have it in my 29g sump of my 40 breeder and it does a great job pulling everything out. Its quiet and definitely produces some serious foam. Clips that hold magnets in place break easily...Read More

CONS
Magnet Clips & Wetter Skimmate
REVIEW
This skimmer has been a beast on my 40 Breeder setup which is about 50/55 gallons total volume. My only complaints are that the clips for magnets break too easily and it skims pretty wet even with air closed off completely. I may have an older model so if they fixed the magnet clips I would say it's...Read More

REVIEW
I bought this skimmer hoping it was good quality. After 20 days of operation the motor stopped on me. It was a pain to install and the adjustments were very awkward. The water level has to be within about a quarter inch were to work properly. I am very disappointed in this product.

REVIEW
I recently downsized to a 50 rimless from a 90 gallon reef. Previously used Octo skimmers and was reluctant to change but the Tunze is a good fit for the compartment in my tank. This skimmer works great right out of the box and is literally plug and play. Simple but very effective producing high qua...Read More
