CPR is proud to introduce the hang-on skimmer that all reefkeepers have been waiting for, the Cyclone BAK-PAK™ 2R+. This new skimmer is designed for use on reef tanks where biological filtration is not necessary, but still incorporates all of the other features that have made the BAK-PAK™ line of skimmers so popular.

New "Tri Chamber" design of the BAK-PAK™ 2R+ takes the place of the biological section, and when combined with a new and improved outlet design, provides an effective way to reduce bubbles caused by system imbalances.
  • Incorporates CPR`s proven high performance rejuvenation protein skimmer.
  • No need to purchase an overflow or return pump, the BAK-PAK™ 2R+ simply hangs on the back of your tank.
  • Use on tanks utilizing the Berlin or Jaubert Method, where supplemental biological filtration is not desired.
  • Easy to setup, easy to use, easy to clean.
  • For tanks up to 60 gallons. For larger tanks use an additional BAK-PAK™.
  • The BAK-PAK™ 2R+ can also make use of the accessories available for the BAK-PAK™2 (with exception of the BPBT).
  • Skimmer body dimension: 7.5" W X 3" D X 17" H
  • Overall dimensions: 7.5" W x 6.25" D x 19.5" H

CPR Aquatic Aquarium Supplies
In Arcata, located in Northern California, the sea is a way of life. From the advanced Marine Biology department at Humboldt State University, just up the hill from CPR’s headquarters, to Humboldt Bay, about a mile west, CPR is nestled in a perfect environment to develop equipment for marine aquariums. CPR was started in a small garage in 1987 to produce biological filters for local aquarists. People who used CPR filters were impressed by the high quality and affordable prices. Word spread and the company grew. Since then, CPR has expanded to a 10,000 sq. ft. production facility and has developed many innovative products over the years. CPR is incorporating new ideas and technologies all the time. Their goal is to allow aquarists to place the highest performing products in their tanks at reasonable prices.

REVIEW
There are definitely better skimmers out there, and there are cheaper skimmers out there but this is a pretty good compromise if you want a good product but don't have deep pockets. Sets up easy, mine broke in quick. Producing well after only a couple days. The biggest knock is that it is a bit lou...Read More

REVIEW
I had a skimmer that broke. So I did my homework and this one was the one that I picked, it was delivered on time and very very well packed! My water was cloudy, and I will admit after about an hour of having the Bak Pak running my water became clear, I've had it running for almost two weeks, my wat...Read More

REVIEW
I purchased one of these for my 55 gallon tank and have to say I love it. The people who are reviewing this item poorly either have it improperly set up, or are not patient enough to wait for the break in period before reviewing. Mine took 3 weeks before producing any foam in the collection cup. ...Read More

Can't Handle its own Weight

REVIEW
Works decently well as a skimmer, but after a year the weight of the water in it wears down the intake joint/ gasket and it begins to leak. Weight bears on the plastic support on the left side, but the intake on the right side. On my second and last one of these.

Works but is so LOUD!

REVIEW
I know people seem to really like this and I did notice that noise was mentioned but I didn't realize how loud it would actually be. I purchased this for a 45 gallon tank in my bedroom and had to remove it the 1st night. I moved it to my living room tank to use as a back up but my family complained....Read More
