SUPERIOR DESIGN
FC skimmers utilize a one-piece acrylic body which is molded into a beautiful wine glass shape. The shape is what smoothly guides and condenses the foam inside the skimmer for effective removal of waste via the collection cup. Furthermore, the specially designed dome on the collection cups reduce resistance as the foam rises and falls into the collection cup for maximum waste removal.

AquaMaxx has included both a highly sensitive gate valve type outlet and the first ever adjustable air silencer which gives you precise control over the foam level inside of your skimmer.

Computer-precision engineered and outfitted with the latest filtration technology, AquaMaxx protein FC series protein skimmers will deliver the performance and value you are looking for in a skimmer.

  1. Too early to tell.. Review by Wendy
    Product Rating:

    I may have to come back later to submit my official review of this. It is very quiet. Instructions are basic, but were not for the 80 model. Advice on what the ideal bubble height for us novice, would be helpful. I have a lot of variables in my tank at the moment. I have a 60 gal seahorse tank with a 15 gal sump. I purchased an oversized skimmer due to the need to feed seahorses a lot of food. And, I just treated the tank with meds which can cause foaming. SO, with that said. I have found with the gate at the bottom fully open and the air bubbler at the lowest setting, I am just able to keep it mid neck in the cup viewing area. I have it set this way due to the overfilling the cup at night and during AWC cycles. It is currently setting in about 6" of water. I am thinking of raising the platform it's sitting on to 4" and adjust the gate and bubbler settings again. I am getting very wet skimate, but it has only been working a few weeks. I'll come back and make another review after it's been established for a while. (Posted on 1/16/2019)

  2. Too early to tell.. Review by WSH
    Product Rating:

    I'll be honest I'm a novice. this is my first skimmer so I may not be the best person to leave a review. However, so far, I have found that the skimmer has to be in lower water levels, 4-6 (max) inches maybe? I have the gate at the bottom open all the way and the air bubbler turned all the way down. and the bubbles are mid way in the cup region. Mine is currently set in about 6 inches of water, in my sump. At these settings I'm getting very wet skimate and I have yet to get any of that nice dark skimate... it has only been in for a few weeks and directions say over 4 weeks before it "breaks in". Also take into account, this is being used on a 60 gal (15 gal sump) seahorse tank so my skimate may just be watery. And another side note I did treat the tank with meds that causes foaming so with all this to consider, I'm not going to say this is a bad skimmer for the money... nor can I say it's a good one. Too many variables for me at the moment. I may do another review in a month or so. (Posted on 1/16/2019)

  3. Quiet and Works Great Review by Chris
    Product Rating:

    Pro: It is really quiet and does what its suppose to do -remove waste from your tank. Also since it has a clear body you can see whats going on when it is on. The mini cones does aid with water flow pushing waste up to tje collection cup.
    Con: Better instructions when you 1st put this together.
    Also if this is your 1st skimmer more information on setting it at the right water height. (Posted on 10/19/2018)
