AquaMaxx HOB-1.5 Hang-On-Back Protein Skimmer Information
 
 AquaMaxx The NEW AquaMaxx HOB-1.5 is an upgraded and more-powerful version of AquaMaxx`s best-selling HOB-1. With an enlarged bubble diffusor and reaction chamber, the new HOB-1.5 is able to fully harness the power of the Shark 1.0 pump to maximize foam production and protein extraction. The custom conical bubble diffusors help minimize the turbulence inside the reaction chamber and help to direct water linearly up toward the collection cup. More waste than ever is pulled out of your aquarium and into the easy-to-remove collection cup.
 
AquaMaxx skimmers are computer-precision engineered and utilize the la filtration technology to deliver the performance and value you are looking for in a protein skimmer.
 
EASE OF USE
AquaMaxx HOB-1.5 protein skimmers is easy to setup and maintain. Just move the collection cup up or down to adjust the foam level to wet or dry.
 
Maintenance is simple. A removable collection cup makes cleaning easy. Plus, every AquaMaxx protein skimmer includes a drain fitting for hobbyists who want to setup a separate reservoir for skimmate.
 
Water quality and consistency is crucial to the success of a marine aquarium. An AquaMaxx HOB Series I protein skimmer will help to ensure that success.
 
COMPACT DESIGN
AquaMaxx protein skimmers were designed from the ground up with the hobbyist in mind. AquaMaxx HOB Series I protein skimmers have the pump placed inside the skimmer itself to save space, reduce noise and improve efficiency.
 
All AquaMaxx protein skimmers are computer designed. Each unit is precision-cut and made of polished cell-cast acrylic.
 
PERFORMANCE
AquaMaxx HOB-1.5 Skimmers feature high-quality Italian-made Sicce pumps. Each Sicce pump motor block is then modified and fitted with proprietary AquaMaxx needle wheel impellers. With the precise modifications and upgrades, performance is boosted much beyond that of a stock pump. The upgraded AquaMaxx ‘Shark’ pump is capable of drawing in significantly more air and chops them up to the optimum bubble size for protein extraction. These pump and protein skimmer combinations deliver unprecedented performance and reliability. Accumulated protein and organics will be vigorously removed from your tank so you can focus less on maintenance and more on enjoying your piece of the reef.

This customer purchased the item at our site.
It worked pretty well until I started feeding a blend of frozen seafood.
After that it regularly has problems. Things like splattering out the holes in the top and lifting the collection cup lid and overflowing bubbles on the floor.
Unfortunately the drain on the side of the collection cup is pretty much useless, it always overflows before pushing anything out this. If this worked better and it had a taller collection cup it would probably work for me.

@Jason That is not an issue skimmer. You are simply overfeedin. Frozen is very dirty and if you over feed just a little, it will cause the skimmer to react to the large change in water chemistry.

Advantages: Easy to setup
Runs silently
Can produce good quality skimmate

Disadvantages: Some food will cause it to overflow
Drain on collection cup seems to not work
Hard to clean narrow spots in collection up

This customer purchased the item at our site.
Skimmer is easy to assemble, doesn't install on rimmed aquariums, unless you do some modifications, as I did.
Quite a bit of microbubbles, I added a piece of tubing and a ventri, from my seaclone skimmer to the air intake and was able to dial in the skimmer to limit the microbubbles. This also make breaking in the cup much easier.
Also, I added foam to the intake line to clean the water, and help with bubbles.

Advantages: Great looking skimmer
Looks like it should do well

Disadvantages: Needs a ventri to adjust air intake, plus it helps make the skimmer more quiet than it already is, and it's super quiet.
No foam added for the intake
