IceCap K1-130 Protein Skimmer

The IceCap K1 130 is a remarkably compact skimmer that offers a new level of refined filtration for marine aquariums.  All aspects of the skimmer were implemented to surpass many challenges other skimmers on the market miss out on.

The IceCap K1 130 is crafted from robust PVC and high quality acrylic. Each component is marine safe, refined in every aspect to provide the latest enhancements in foam fractionation and the highest in quality.

The elegant “Beer Bottle" curve of the skimmer body naturally stabilizes the air and water mix as they transition upward within the reaction chamber. An impressively compact footprint makes it the ideal candidate for tight sump applications. Every aspect of the skimmer disassembles completely for easy service.

At the Core of the IceCap K1 130, you will find the EVair 400 skimmer pump, built to be highly durable, packing a ton efficient performance.

The pipeless output offers fine-tuning and trouble free underwater outflow plus quiet operation. Our pipeless design not only saves on space but also allows the outgoing water to exit on the side of the skimmer and below the water surface providing splash-free circulation in the sump.

Located much lower in the reaction chamber, the unique bubble dispersing chamber offers a multi stage diffusion of water, additional contact time for enhanced foam stability.

Ice cap k-130 protein skimmer

Pros: Very easy to use. User friendly. Easy to set up. Easy to clean

Cons: Collection cup broke. Collection cup a little hard to get off.

Ok well let me start off with it’s is a great protein skimmer it has been running for 3months and works very well have it set up on a 75 gallon. But the other day it broke I was a little upset cause how it broke was a Quality issue and that’s why I was mad and was Irritated how some one spend there harder earned money on a product to break. How did it break well I was doing a water change and when to put the collection cup off and the off it came with the bace to witch you can see in the pictures. Then I had to run to the store and get some silicone. So I use silicone and put it back on and it back working like a champ. And that’s why it is a 4 out of 5 stars
