Red Sea Reefer RSK Protein Skimmers - Efficient - Quiet - Ergonomic

Red Sea Reefer Skimmers are powered by Sicce`s PSK Skimmer Pumps, a pump well known among hobbyists around the world for their efficient output.

The silent operation of the Reef Skimmers are attributed to the large air intake silencer, and the vibration dampening feet and connections.

The diffusion chamber of the Reefer Skimmers disperses microbubbles produced by the PSK skimmer pump evenly through the conical ergonomic body, while maintaining air and water flow.


  • FoamView window for foam regulation
  • Neck cleaner integration
  • Drain port connection with 3 foot draining hose
  • Graduated collection cup to monitor skimmate production
  • Highly effective air silencer
  • High volume reaction chamber
  • Sicce PSK Skimmer pump
  • Two positioning options for the skimmer pump
  • Precise gate valve for skimming control
  • Vibration reducing footing
