Protein Skimmers

Protein skimmers benefit water quality by facilitating two major processes - gas exchange and export of organic wastes. Protein skimmers remove excess protein waste from salt water (marine) aquariums by pushing air through a column of moving water. The proteins adhere to the air bubbles and are carried up to a catch of some sort (a cup or bowl). This catch can be removed and cleaned. The beneficial gas exchange that goes on inside of a protein skimmer is largely dissolution of atmospheric oxygen into the aquarium water

Different types of protein skimmers are available. Internal protein skimmers can mount the inside of the tank, others sit externally. 

Here at Homeleigh you can browse our huge range of aquarium and pond protein skimmers online, but if you don't see the product you require, please call our aquatic team on 01566 771878 as we may have it in store.
