Vertex Omega 180i Protein Skimmer

The Omega 180i skimmer is rated for up to 184 gallon aquarium.  It uses the new wine bottle shape for maximum efficency.  They also utilize a new modded Sicce pinwheel pump. 

The new Vertex Omega 180i skimmer is perfectly constructed of acrylic and PVC and comes in Vertex’s quintessential red and white color scheme. There is only one pump, a modified Sicce PSK1000, which performs both air fractionation and water delivery; it moves 264 to 343 gallons of air per hour and consumes only 28 watts of power. The skimmer has a conventional high-end in-sump needle-wheel design, a large internal pump pulls in air and water, and then drives them upwards to the diffuser plate. In my in-depth review, I will report on the actual air performance of this beautiful skimmer. The body of skimmer has a diameter of 7 inches at the base, it rises cylindrically for 7.9 inches, and then tapers down to a 4 inch diameter at the cup junction.

  1. Vertex Omega 180i - checks all the boxes. Review by ReefingwithO
    Product Rating:

    Opening a Vertex Omega 180i is almost like opening a new iPhone. The skimmer comes mostly fully assembled. No fiddling about or assembly before use.

    The skimmer broke in within 24 hours and after that time it started to pull skimmate. There is something about Vertex Skimmers where it pulls a lot more air that other skimmers.

    I am coming from a Skimz DC skimmer and I was worried about the noise the AC pump on the Vertex would produce. My fears ended up being for nothing. The Skimmer is dead quiet - The tank is in my living room where I watch TV and my Radions are louder than the skimmer.

    I'm using it on a heavily overstocked 75 gallon.
