Vertex IN 250 In-Sump Protein Skimmer.
**** PRODUCT MANUAL ****
Among the many progresses in Marine Aquaria hobby in the recent years, the use of protein skimmers was, by far, one of the greatest milestones in maintaining salt water aquarium animals. Organic compounds, being bipolar in nature, provide an opportunity for waste extraction via injection of air into the skimmer body which served the dual function of extraction of these compounds while aerating the water. Since their inception, there has been much advancement in the design and functionality of Protein Skimming. Vertex™ IN-Series Skimmers utilize those technologies in the most effective way, while offering you the best value for your investment.
Powerful motor pumps drive precision Needle Wheel Rotors to introduce large amounts of air and water into the skimmer body. This is done without compromising continuous delivery and velocity due to the turbulence reducing bubble plate chamber. The result is a consistent foam head and nutrient extraction.
Featuring the all inclusive Silent Air Orbi t (SAO) technology, Vertex™ IN-Series Skimmers represent the Ultimate solution to noise reduction. Rotors engineered with the incredible strength of Rare Earth Phosphor Magnets and the frictionless ride of Zirconium shafts, polished to an exceptionally high gloss, ensure that the entire impeller assembly spins with amazingly nominal resistance and vibration.
Removal of the collection cup has never been as easy and effortless. The messy union locks and twist caps used by other competing products have been replaced by an insert cup seated atop a gasket seal; minimalism simplifying your routine.

Got this skimmer for my 220 Gallon Reef. From when I opened the box till it was up and running was less than 10 minutes. Skimmer is quiet and once I got it adjusted it pulls out tons of bad stuff from the tank. The best advice I can give to anyone using this skimmer is make sure you have the 8 to 9 " of water in the skimmer as recommended. I had about 12 inches of water in mine and it was hard to adjust this skimmer. Once I took it down to 8 " all worked great. Water is clearer than ever before and my filter socks last twice as long as before.
Ordering and shipping was very fast. The setup took me about 7 minutes from the box, and finished my custom refugium. After everything was set and ready for power-up, I plugged the skimmer in and even on start-up it was quiet and continues to be very quiet. The amount of scud that it is taking out of the tank is amazing, and I can already see the difference in the water clarity. This brand was recommended to me by a saltwater shop owner, and I am truly amazed at the power and the cleaning ability, this is the best bang for your buck, and will out perform several higher priced skimmers. Don't pass on this one.
