A great nano-reef skimmer for aquariums up to 30 Gallons!

AquaMaxx NF-1 nano-skimmer has all the attributes to make it an awesome nano-skimmer! Great pump, great design, great materials, great craftsmanship, great efficiency and great performance!

Heart of a Skimmer is the Pump
All AquaMaxx skimmers feature modified high-quality Italian Sicce Pumps. While other skimmers may also use Sicce needlewheel pumps, AquaMaxx ‘Shark’ pumps go above and beyond. Each Sicce pump motor block is modified then fitted with a proprietary AquaMaxx needlewheel impeller to further enhance its performance. With the precise modifications and upgrades, performance is boosted much beyond that of a standard Sicce needlewheel pump. The upgraded AquaMaxx ‘Shark’ pump is capable of drawing significantly more air and chops them up to the optimum bubble size for maximum protein extraction. The pump and protein skimmer combinations deliver unprecedented performance and reliability. Accumulated protein and organics will be vigorously removed from your tank and your water quality will be much improved!

Innovative Design
AquaMaxx skimmers are computer engineered and outfitted with the latest filtration technology. AquaMaxx NF-1 skimmer features an advanced bubble chamber to efficiently mix air and water to extract the maximum amount of protein. Noise is minimized by the built-in air silencer as well as the silicone noise-dampeners on the magnetic mounts. Extensively tested outlet baffling system minimizes air bubbles from exiting the outlet.

Unsurpassed Quality
High-quality cell-cast acrylic is used throughout for maximum durability. Experienced craftsmen assemble each skimmer precisely to produce a top-notch product at very affordable prices.

Excellent build quality

Doesn’t fit innovative marine AIOs
REVIEW
I bought this skimmer based on the “will it fit” video in the photos. I have an Innovative Marine 10g. The fit was insanely tight and messed up the flow and water level of the tank. After contacting Marine Depot they were aware the manufacturer has created a second version that is now being sold...Read More

Fits in my biocube
CONS
no cons for me
REVIEW
I was looking for a more robust answer to providing a small amount of skimming to my tank. I use a dual canister filter but I still wanted some bacterial removal. The fit is perfect and stated producing skim in less than a week.

I got this skimmer recently for my Nuvo 10. It pulls a lot of gunk like no other the first 3 days, which perfectly does what it’s supposed to... but the major issue I have right now is the micro bubble, that I can barely see well in my tank. They said it will recede soon... I guess I just have to ...Read More

REVIEW
The build quality imo is pretty awesome for a skimmer in this price.I really like the magnet to hold in place and the Sicce pump. Very quiet. But does it work? Yes it does, and it does it well for a nano skimmer. Buy one, I honestly think you'll be impressed.
