AquaMaxx HOB-1.5 Hang-On-Back Protein Skimmer

The NEW AquaMaxx HOB-1.5 is an upgraded and more-powerful version of AquaMaxx`s best-selling HOB-1. With an enlarged bubble diffusor and reaction chamber, the new HOB-1.5 is able to fully harness the power of the Shark 1.0 pump to maximize foam production and protein extraction. The custom conical bubble diffusors help minimize the turbulence inside the reaction chamber and help to direct water linearly up toward the collection cup. More waste than ever is pulled out of your aquarium and into the easy-to-remove collection cup.

AquaMaxx skimmers are computer-precision engineered and utilize the latest filtration technology to deliver the performance and value you are looking for in a protein skimmer.

EASE OF USE
AquaMaxx HOB-1.5 protein skimmers is easy to setup and maintain. Just move the collection cup up or down to adjust the foam level to wet or dry.

Maintenance is simple. A removable collection cup makes cleaning easy. Plus, every AquaMaxx protein skimmer includes a drain fitting for hobbyists who want to setup a separate reservoir for skimmate.

Water quality and consistency is crucial to the success of a marine aquarium. An AquaMaxx HOB Series I protein skimmer will help to ensure that success.

COMPACT DESIGN
AquaMaxx protein skimmers were designed from the ground up with the hobbyist in mind. AquaMaxx HOB Series I protein skimmers have the pump placed inside the skimmer itself to save space, reduce noise and improve efficiency.

All AquaMaxx protein skimmers are computer designed. Each unit is precision-cut and made of polished cell-cast acrylic.

PERFORMANCE
AquaMaxx HOB-1.5 Skimmers feature high-quality Italian-made Sicce pumps. Each Sicce pump motor block is then modified and fitted with proprietary AquaMaxx needle wheel impellers. With the precise modifications and upgrades, performance is boosted much beyond that of a stock pump. The upgraded AquaMaxx ‘Shark’ pump is capable of drawing in significantly more air and chops them up to the optimum bubble size for protein extraction. These pump and protein skimmer combinations deliver unprecedented performance and reliability. Accumulated protein and organics will be vigorously removed from your tank so you can focus less on maintenance and more on enjoying your piece of the reef.

  1. Great Skimmer once its broke in! Review by Antman
    Product Rating:

    First off easy to use and not hard to put together. I wish they had a valve on the air hose to adjust the amount of bubbles. I hung on back opposite to my overflow. I plumbed the drain over and dumped into overflow so the bubbles would go into sump and dissipate (I did not get a sump skimmer because I have no head room under my tank). I also got a cheap plastic 1/4 inch push connect shutoff and a small piece of 1/4 inch tubing. The yellow air tube fits over the 1/4 inch tube and allowed me to cut the air intake down so it did not produce a lot of bubbles and overflow. A week later I had it to the point the valve was all the way open and I then plumbed the drain back into the tank because no bubbles were coming around the baffle and out of the drain. Other than that process its set it and forget it. I have to clean the cup at least once a week of the awful gunk it pulls from water. I would highly recommend this product. (Posted on 1/19/2020)
