The latest AquaMaxx ConeS HOB Hang-On-Back Protein Skimmer takes all of the great features of the ConeS CO-1 skimmer and adapts them to a hang-on-back version. Now, you can get all the great performance of the ConeS CO-1 skimmer without needing a sump. It is rated up to 175 gallons in a design compact enough to be placed on a small or medium-size saltwater aquarium.

Conical Diffusers
AquaMaxx ConeS HOB Hang-On-Back Protein Skimmer efficiently remove organic waste from aquarium water. With an advance bubble chamber design that features numerous conical diffusers, the turbulence in the reaction chamber is reduced and a stable laminar flow is achieved to maximize efficiency and performance.

Achieve a Stable Laminar Flow and Maximize Efficiency!
In conjunction with the innovative bubble chamber, a powerful needle wheel pump generates optimally-sized air bubbles that force protein, waste and other materials through the hybrid cone body and into a collection cup for easy removal.

Computer-precision engineered and outfit with the latest filtration technology, AquaMaxx protein skimmers are engineered to deliver the performance and value you are looking for in a skimmer.

AquaMaxx Skimmers are built using a brilliantly polished cell-cast acrylic. They incorporate the high-end features hardcore hobbyists demand at a price everyone can afford. The ConeS Series is equipped with advanced bubble chambers, hybrid-cone bodies, air silencers and needle wheel impellers for maximum performance, efficiency and whisper quiet operation.

High Performance
AquaMaxx ConeS Skimmers feature high-quality Italian-made Sicce pumps. Each Sicce pump motor block is then modified and fitted with proprietary AquaMaxx needle wheel impellers. With the precise modifications and upgrades, performance is boosted much beyond that of a stock pump. The upgraded AquaMaxx ‘Shark’ pump is capable of drawing in significantly more air and chops them up to the optimum bubble size for protein extraction. These pump and protein skimmer combinations deliver unprecedented performance and reliability. Accumulated protein and organics will be vigorously removed from your tank so you can focus less on maintenance and more on enjoying your piece of the reef.

Superior Design
The AquaMaxx ConeS HOB Hang-On-Back Protein Skimmer is designed from the ground up with the hobbyist in mind. A built-in air intake silencer reduces noise for near-silent operation. The hybrid-cone design maximizes the size of the reaction chamber and to allow the skimmate to smoothly rise into the collection cup. The advanced Bubble Chamber decreases turbulence and produced a stable laminar flow: which improves bubble transition and boosts skimmer performance.

Ease of Use
AquaMaxx protein skimmers are easy to setup and maintain. To adjust the water level, simply rotate the reaction chamber.

Maintenance is simple. The collection cup can also be easily removed for cleaning with a simple twist. Plus, every AquaMaxx protein skimmer includes a drain fitting for hobbyists who want to setup a separate reservoir for skimmate.

Water quality and consistency is crucial to the success of a marine aquarium. An AquaMaxx protein skimmer will help to ensure that success.

This is a bit too large for the Innovative Marine 20 Gal NUVO. I would recommend the AquaMaxx HOB 1.5 instead.

Poor Skimmer and Customer Service

REVIEW

Aquamaxx claims there is a 1 year warranty but I tried to reach out to them and got no response. I ended up replacing this skimmer with a Reef Octopus, which is outperfor...Read More

I am extremely happy with my purchase. The break in period for me was just 14 hours. I have a 20 gallon tank with 7 fish and I felt the need to GO BIGGER on my this purchase.
