AquaMaxx ConeS CO-5 In-Sump Protein Skimmer Tank Ratings: For a light bioload up to 600 gallons; for a heavy bioload up to 350 gallons AquaMaxx ConeS Series In-Sump Protein Skimmers efficiently remove organic waste from aquarium water. With an advance bubble chamber design that features numerous conical diffusers, the turbulence in the reaction chamber is reduced and a stable laminar flow is achieved to maximize efficiency and performance. Achieve a stable laminar flow and maximize efficiency! In conjunction with the innovative bubble chamber, a powerful needle wheel pump generates optimally-sized air bubbles that force protein, waste and other materials through the hybrid cone body and into a collection cup for easy removal. The AquaMaxx ConeS Series is rated for aquariums 175-600 gallons yet are small enough to be concealed in a sump underneath your aquarium. Computer-precision engineered and outfit with the latest filtration technology, AquaMaxx protein skimmers are engineered to deliver the performance and value you are looking for in a skimmer. AquaMaxx ConeS Series Skimmers are built using a brilliantly polished cell-cast acrylic. They incorporate the high-end features hardcore hobbyists demand at a price everyone can afford. The ConeS Series is equipped with advanced bubble chambers, hybrid-cone bodies, air silencers and needle wheel impellers for maximum performance, efficiency and whisper quiet operation. They also have compact footprints to make installation as easy as possible. HIGH PERFORMANCE AquaMaxx ConeS Skimmers feature custom made SHARK 6.0 pumps with special needle wheel impellers to whip up large amounts of air with optimum bubble size. These pump and protein skimmer combinations deliver unprecedented performance and reliability. Aquarium waste will be vigorously removed from your tank so you can focus less on maintenance and more on enjoying your piece of the reef. MULTI-POSITION PUMP The skimmer comes pre-drilled with two pump ports which allow you to change the position of the pump. This versatile features allows the skimmer to fit into a variety of spaces without compensating performance. SUPERIOR DESIGN AquaMaxx Cone-Series Protein Skimmers are designed from the ground up with the hobbyist in mind. A built-in air intake silencer reduces noise for near-silent operation. The hybrid-cone design maximizes the size of the reaction chamber and to allow the skimmate to smoothly rise into the collection cup. The advanced Bubble Chamber decreases turbulence and produced a stable laminar flow: which improves bubble transition and boosts skimmer performance. SPECIFICATIONS Filtration Rating: up to 600 Gallons (light bioload) or 350 Gallons (heavy bioload) Footprint: 16.6" x 13.8" or 20.1" x 10.7" depending on pump orientation Height: 22.9” Chamber diameter: 10” Outlet size: 1” Quick-Precise adjustment valve Pump (included): SHARK 6.0 Pump power consumption: 45 watts Recommended Water Leve: 8.5"-9” Requires approximately 1/2" of clearance to remove collection cup. *Do not over tighten collection cup as damage may result. HIGHLIGHTS Efficient, durable and reliable Simple to set up and operate Cell-cast acrylic construction SCH80 fittings Quick-Precise adjustment valve allows fast precision tuning of the skimmer water level to control wet/dry foam production ShockMaxx rubber feet isolate noise and reduce vibration. Custom made SHARK 6.0 pump produces optimum bubble size for high-efficiency protein skimming. Buffer chamber maximizes contact time allowing skimmate to move smoothly into the collection cup.
