AquaMaxx Bubble Stopper for HOB-1 and HOB-1.5 Protein Skimmers

It`s no secret to seasoned hobbyists that you can expect micro-bubbles from any skimmer, at any point in time, which can be caused by many factors that can include: additives, greasy food, new filter socks, etc. The Bubble Stopper commonly called a Bubble Trap, easily attaches to the outlet of the AquaMaxx HOB-1 or HOB 1.5 protein skimmer to reduce micro-bubbles, or to be used as a precaution to micro-bubbles entering the aquarium.

Manufacturer information

AquaMaxx
AquaMaxx is a Southern California-based aquarium supply company that entered the market in mid-2008 with a line of affordable metal halide bulbs. The brand quickly gained recognition as word spread about the high quality and low cost of their lamps. In 2009, AquaMaxx released a line of aquarium filter socks and, in early 2010, unveiled an assortment of high-performance protein skimmer accessories and upgrades.

Must Have

Pros: No bubbles

Cons: none

I didn't know how many microbubbles I my old skimmer produced until I added this piece. The water was much clearer with no bubbles at all.

This works!

Pros: Less bubbles, Less salt creep from bubbles, somewhat blocks empty space to cut down on carpet surfing fish.

Cons: Skimmer itself is average

Very nice upgrade. I was noticing too many micro bubbles in my skimmer so I purchased this. It works. Wish they came out with this earlier as I might have saved a fish that when carpet surfacing a year ago. It somewhat blocks that space in front of skimmer..

It's huge

Cons: Way too big

This thing is ridiculously large to be attached on a hob skimmer. I literally laughed when i opened it up.

Micro eliminated$$$$$$$

Pros: Works

Works well! Must have to clear up problem. AQUAMAXX should have supplied it to previous purchases at discount. Cost to much for simple part.

Bubble stopper

Pros: Quite, effective.

Cons: Tee needs to be longer so the stopper is farther into the tank.

Nice addition to protein skimmer. To stop micro bubbles and surface floaters.

Great product

The bubble stopper works as intended. Just have to make sure the foam is level with the water level.

Ehh

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: Only fits in my jbj45 because I only use one pump instead of 2

I never had a problem with micro bubbles but I did have some not much.. I put it on and it didn't help at all weeks later I unplugged my skimmer for about 25 minutes then plugged it back in and now I barely have any micro bubbles.

HOB1 bubble stopper

currently running a first generation HOB1 protein skimmer for a 75g mixed reef tank. Since the first gen didn't have the bubble stopper I had quite a bit of micro bubbles in my tank. After installing the bubble stopper, problem has been solved. I was actually very surprised at how well it worked. AguaMaxx makes a quality product that works.
