When you need monster skimming and you have only the space under your stand to play with, the Turboflotor 5000 Shorty skimmers deliver dramatic results. Sporting a powerful Ocean Runner 3700 pump with needle wheel impellor technology, pushing 900 gph of water and drawing 150 gph of air into a raging mix of finely chopped bubbles, the T5000 Shorty II feature remarkable contact time for their condensed height. The massive collection cup is your first clue…these skimmers intend to collect! The towering conical riser inside the collection cup condenses and dehydrates the foam, producing impressive volumes of dark, dry skimmate. There are no metric conversion hassles either in tying this monster to your system! 3/4” inlets and 1 1/4” outlets mean easy integration and plumbing. The Turboflotor 5000 Shorty skimmers can be fed water skimmed from the surface of your aquarium via a tee from your drain line. This is an ideal way to maximize the efficiency of the skimmer. A dedicate pump loop can be used instead, using an Oceanrunner 2500 to feed the skimmer from the sump. Internal or external, the Turboflotor 5000 Shorty skimmers will bring BIG-time skimming to your system, all comfortably inside your stand. TurboFlotor 5000 Shorty II Specifications: - Total Hight: 29" - Recirculating Pump (included): Ocean Runner 3700 - Recommended Tank Size: Up to 500 gal.
