Vertex Omega 200i Protein Skimmer

The Omega 200i skimmer is rated for up to 264 gallon aquarium.  It uses the new wine bottle shape for maximum efficency.  They also utilize a new custom Askol motor.

While the Original Omega Concept has been widely accepted and appreciated by the most discerning hobbyist, Omega “ i ” Series was conceptualized to answer the needs of high bio-load systems with restricted sump volume. Omega i series (“i ” stands for “internal”) are pump in the body skimmers with emphasis on the fact that this feature should not reduce performance. From Titanium screws to the engraving on the lid, no expense was spared to achieve unparalleled quality and luxurious build.

Omega 200i Askol motors have been long recognized as the pinnacle of the high performance and reliability in aquatics hobby.

Unfortunately due to the larger size of these motors, most skimmers with pump inside the body design utilizing this great motor suffer from decreased reaction chamber volume. Vertex’s master CNC craftsmen have remedied this problem with a new custom bracket that allows mounting the pump on its side. This in return increases the volume of the reaction chamber significantly. Further to that the smooth signature transition allows forbetter migration of air/water mix and final separation of organics from Aquarium water.
