AquaMaxx Bullet-1 Hang-On-Back Protein Skimmer
AquaMaxx`s Bullet HOB Skimmer was designed to deliver high performance in small spaces. Unlike traditional hang-on-back skimmers which can be a large eyesore for your aquarium, the Bullet`s modern design can efficiently filter nano tanks up to 30 gallons with a footprint just the size of an index card!
AquaMaxx protein skimmers were designed from the ground up with the hobbyist in mind. The AquaMaxx Bullet HOB protein skimmer features an advanced internal flow design to efficiently mix air and water, extracting the maximum amount of protein. Noise is minimized by the built-in air silencer and silicone noise dampeners, and the skimmer`s smooth, bullet-shaped body and transparent chamber allow for easy cleaning and maintenance. High-quality cell-cast acrylic is used throughout the build for maximum durability, precisely assembled by experienced craftsmen to produce a top-notch product at a very affordable price.
The Bullet HOB features a high-performance SHARK Nano pump: an enhanced Italian-made Sicce pump. Each Sicce pump motor block is modified and fitted with proprietary AquaMaxx needle wheel impellers, which boosts performance much beyond that of a stock pump. The upgraded AquaMaxx SHARK pump is capable of drawing in and chopping up significantly more air, providing the optimum bubble size for protein extraction. Accumulated protein and organics will be vigorously removed from your tank so that you can focus less on maintenance and more on enjoying your piece of the reef.

Nice addition to a standard glass reef tank under 20 gallons

I bought this, after I broke the internal pipe of my all glass, reef glass skimmer. The reefglas is a good skimmer but the cost of getting the broken piece replaced and finding wooden airstones every few months, led me to the aquamax bullet !. It looks attractive on a standard tank where everything is hang on back. I'm using a tidal 35 power filter hob for filter media. The skimmer works well, is well built and attractive and works! (unlike most small hob skimmers that are garbage, IMO). After 12 hours running, slight wet skim. I think break in will take a couple days in relatively dirty tank, cleaner water will take longer I think. Anyway, easy setup, just make sure to run the pump until you see outpour from the spillway, keeping the airline tube submerged. Then simply attatch the airline tubing to the venture. Quiet running. Priming the pump takes about 4 to 5 minutes. I did not realize this, and attatched the vairline before the pump was primed. My bad,. I called the guys at reef supplies who sent me the link to a video on youtube. It was helpful. Just buy it if your tank is under 20 gallon, I doubt the claim of 30 gallonns, over 30 I'd step uo the the bullet 2. cheers.
