Nano Skimmers

A nano protein skimmer is a saltwater aquarium filter designed for a nano reef tank or all in one aquarium.

What is a protein skimmer? A nano skimmer is a nano filter that replicates the ocean’s natural filtration. Crashing waves produce foam that attracts organics, which are then deposited on shore. A protein skimmer creates foam in a chamber that attracts protein as it rises out of the water into a collection cup for removal.

Is a protein skimmer for nano tank necessary? Although it is possible to maintain a nano reef with water changes, A skimmer is a great benefit that removes waste and oxygenates water.

If you need an AIO aquarium skimmer, measure carefully before buying to ensure the skimmer fits. For example, the best skimmer for Nuvo 20 is the Innovative Marine DC protein skimmer because it is designed to fit in the filtration chamber. Also consider an HOB nano protein skimmer, which hangs on the back of a nano tank.
