IceCap K2 160 Protein Skimmer

The IceCap K2 160 is a remarkably compact skimmer that offers a new level of refined filtration for marine aquariums ranging from 120 to 200 gallons. All aspects of the skimmer were implemented to surpass many challenges other skimmer on the market miss out on. 

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.

The elegant “Beer Bottle” curve of the skimmer body naturally stabilizes the air and water mix as they transition upward within the reaction chamber. An impressively compact footprint makes it the ideal candidate for tight sump applications. Every aspect of the skimmer disassembles completely for easy service.

Quiet Performance & Control

At the Core of the IceCap K2, you will find the always reliable and Italian made Sicce skimmer pump with a proven track record for being highly durable and packing a ton efficient performance. 

The pipeless output offers fine-tuning and trouble free underwater outflow plus quiet operation. The wedge pipe commonly used on other skimmer to channel outgoing water often causes performance inconsistency and additional sound. 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.

Located much lower in the reaction chamber, the unique bubble dispersing chamber offers a multi stage diffusion of water, additional contact time for enhanced foam stability.

    CAN'T REALLY ASK FOR MORE AT THIS PRICE POINT. PROVEN SICCIE PUMP. TITANIUM HARDWARE. ACRYLIC BODY. SEEMS WELL BUILT. MINE CAME WELL PACKAGED FROM ICECAPP . ADJUSTMENTS ARE STRAIGHT FORWARD. THICK NASTY SKIM THE FIRST WEEK RUNNING. MY ONLY COMPLAINT WAS THE FOOTPRINT ADVERTISED. SILENCER STICKS OUT FROM THE SKIMMER base. JUST BARELY FITS IN MY TRIGGER 26 SUMP. OVERALL, SOLID SKIMMER, GOOD VALUE. TIME WILL TELL HOW WELL IT PERFORMS. DISASSEMBLES COMPLETELY FOR CLEANING. (Posted on 8/17/2016)

  2. IceCap K2-160 Review Review by GRUNTDOG73
    Product Rating:

    Received Skimmer directly from CoralVue after ordering from AquaCave. Very fast shipping. Was a little disappointed that the skimmer I received was opened previously for whatever reason. Pump was loose in the box and covered in small Styrofoam beads ( had to clean it up), figured it would be packed better. This skimmer itself is very well made. Only problem I had was screw on adjustment gate valve handle was a little loose (but fixed with some superglue). Instructions from CoralVue are not very detailed. Helps to watch videos instead. Installation was fairly easy. Some of my parts did not line up exactly (Like Venturi coupling fitting through skimmer body) but got it all put together with some slight adjustment. Skimmer is in the sump and breaking in, Produces a ton of bubbles and overflowing at the moment. I know that will take a few weeks to subside. Will see how it skims in a few weeks. For now I just pulled the drain plug and let all the bubbles and water drain back into the sump instead of overflowing from the cup. As For Aquacave, their support and order process are top notch! Will order from them again! (Posted on 4/26/2016)
