Modern Skimmer Design & Functionality
The IceCap K1 Nano is a remarkably compact skimmer that offers a new level of refined filtration for marine aquariums ranging from 10 to 30 gallons. All aspects of the skimmer were implemented to surpass many challenges other skimmers on the market misses out on. Included magnet mount allows for easy placement on surfaces up to 1/2in thick.
Compact & Built to Last
Master crafted from robust PVC and high-quality acrylic. All components are marine safe and refined in every aspect to provide the latest enhancements in foam fractionation and the highest in quality.
An impressively compact footprint makes it the ideal candidate for tight compartment applications. Every aspect of the skimmer disassembles completely for easy service.
Quiet Performance & Control
At the Core of the IceCap K1, you will find the DCair 200 skimmer pump built to provide efficient performance.
The pipeless output offers fine-tuning and trouble-free underwater outflow plus quiet operation. Our pipeless design not only saves on space but also allows the outgoing water to exit on the side of the skimmer and below the water surface providing splash-free circulation in the sump.
Bioload Handling
The bioload of an aquarium refers to its ability to process waste in proportion to tank volume. Protein skimmers work best when properly matched with the bioload of the system.

IM Reefer
Skims really well hard to adjust

The best nano Skimmer I've ever used in respect to performance. However, quality is a bit of a weak point. It came with a broken venturi duct but was an easy fix with some CA glue. This was due to poor manufacturer packaging, not reef supplies.
Fortunately, it produces very high quality foam and just rips organics out the water. The best results I've ever seen in a nano Skimmer.
Unfortunately, it's very finnicky and touchy when needing adjustments. Also, it's very slow to build up foam again when it needs to be shut off for maintenance. It took about a week to break in and until microbubbles went away.
Currently using on an IM nuvo 20 in the secondary baffle chamber.

IceCap K1 Nano Protein Skimmer

Great little skimmer, took about 7 days for it to break in and started to produce some skim. It is a really nice small form factor, and was able to fit in my waterbox peninsula mini 25 middle chamber, but it is sideways. Not a huge fan of the white and orange, it makes it a little less discreet.
