Tunze 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.

Includes magnet mounts for aquariums up to 3/8" thick.

Q
Can this go in a 80 gallon tank?
Can this go in the back of a Innovative Marine 80 gallon.
Asked : Jun 13, 2017

That's a good question. The skimmer's chamber of the Innovative Marine SR-80 is 5.9" x 4.54" and the Tunze Comline DOC Protein Skimmer 9004 is 4.3" x 3.5", so it will fit, but this skimmer is rated for tanks between 15 to 65 gallons, for that reason we would not recommend this skimmer for that particular tank, you can look at the Tunze Comline DOC Protein Skimmer 9012 (TZ79012), that skimmer will fit and it is rated for tanks between 53 to 317 gallons. You can also look at the Innovative Marine AUQA Gadget Ghost Protein Skimmer - FullSize which is the skimmer that was designed for the SR-80.

PROS
Easy setup, skimmate cup is easy to remove for emptying, silent operation.
CONS
Skimmate cup could be a little bigger.
REVIEW
This is a great little skimmer for a nano or smaller QT tank. Easy to setup and the surface intake is a nice feature. I have mine attached to the sump of my QT tank.

CONS
micro bubbles tend to leek from unit
REVIEW
I chose to go with the 9004 in tank skimmer because I liked the surface skimming feature, as well as the reviews I read on it being a "quiet skimmer." The skimmer is relatively small for its skimming capacity, and it is incredibly quiet! It was easy to set up, and works great!
