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.

Good build quality, quiet, quick break-in
REVIEW
This fits in the first or 3rd chambers of an old Solana 34 for anyone with an older tank. It has been awhile since I had a skimmer and am quite happy so far.

It was packed very well and has been producing a nice skimmate from the moment I plugged it in.

I would say it is very quie...Read More

Very Nice Skimmer and quality build
CONS
A little tight fit
REVIEW
I bought this skimmer for my IM 25g Lagoon. 1 it fits pretty snug. It fits side ways, so you dont need the magnet that comes with it. This being Aquamaxx, the acrylic is top notch.
Usually new skimmers will overflow until they break in. This one started producing skim mate immediately.

Great in-sump nano skimmer

PROS
Small, quiet, effective in sump skimmer perfect for AIO nano tanks below 30 gallons.
CONS
Limited info on interwebs, limited support, inside edges of vent holes on lid are sharp and can cut you if you are not careful.
REVIEW
I use this skimmer on my IM 25 lagoon. It fits snugly in the second compartment facing side to side, so the magnet included could not be used with the caddies that I used, but it was not necessary. It took about 3 weeks for the skimmer to fully break in, and now produces a nice wet foam, which I pre...Read More

Magnet mount needs to be stronger
REVIEW
This is a really nice skimmer but I had to knock it for 2 issues. The first issue is minor and easily overcome but still an issue: The output nozzle for the pump is what holds the pump into the skimmer body but on my skimmer it was not a very snug fit and the pump would fall out of the skimmer const...Read More
