The Skimmer Evolved.

Let’s give a warm welcome to the NuvoSkim DC, the industry’s first, energy efficient, direct current powered nano protein skimmer.

Fewer adjustments, remarkably quiet and ultra-fast break in time; the NuvoSkim DC recirculating protein skimmer effectively removes dissolved organics, increases oxygen levels, and creates a cleaner & clearer aquarium.

Along with the engine overhaul the NuvoSkim DC took on a secondary air silencer, vibration reducing rubber feet, enlarged air intake and a new convex lid for drier skim. All these features unite to create Innovative Marine`s most efficient skimmer yet, delivering a new era of uncompromising design and performance.

Features:

  • DC Powered Needle Wheel
  • Dual Silencers (Internal & External)
  • Noise Reducing Rubber Feet
  • Enlarged Air Silencer Box
  • Drop In Convenience
  • Bubble Plate Diffuser
  • Suspended Pump Design
  • Low Profile Cup Design
  • Needle Wheel Impeller
  • Airline Management
  • Convex Lid

Basically comes disassembled/faulty parts

PROS
fits the IM tanks, after getting it set up properly it seems to do its job
CONS
instructions are garbage, comes in pieces, not much attention to detail in craftsmanship, feels cheap
REVIEW
Have had this skimmer for a little over 2 weeks. When it arrived (through an hour of trial and error which included completely disassembling the motor) we found the power supply did not work. I ordered a reactor at the same time, and since I cant use the reactor until the skimmer is up and running, ...Read More

Fits IM tanks perfectly, skims pretty well

noise, microbubbles
REVIEW
I have one for my IM nuvo 20. It fits perfectly in the 2nd chamber. As far as small desktop skimmers go, it does a fine job. You do get some brown skimmate but not the think sludge you will see from larger skimmers. These small skimmers just dont work as well as the larger ones.

If you have a nuvo I wouldn't get any other skimmer. Fits perfect, quiet, and looks great and performs great. First week of use already pulling nice skimmate.

REVIEW
This next generation skimmer from IM is much better than the original Ghost. The skimmer broke in within a few days and I have not experienced any microbubbles leaking into my display like their original model. Good job IM, this skimmer rocks.

Works ok - misses some details

REVIEW
Had this skimmer for 3 months now. The 3 stars are for how the unit is built, and not the performance. It works for me, but skimmer performance seems to be a very subjective thing on small skimmers for nano tanks.

Here’s some things that I think could use improvement on the skimmer: (1) ...Read More

Good skimmer and fits great in my IM Lagoon 25
reviewerbadge
PROS
Fits in IM tanks, Good skim, no micro bubbles
CONS
Pump was in two pieces when received, but after some work I was able to reassemble
REVIEW
I am enjoying this skimmer. Haven't had issues with micro bubbles and it produces good skim. Only issue I've had so far was when I received it the pump was separated in two pieces. Once I snapped it back together it worked fine.
