Internal protein skimmer for aquaria up to 200 litres (c. 50 gal)
The miniflotor is a small but powerful air-driven internal protein skimmer. It features a double reaction tube system: within the inner tube air bubbles rise and carry large quantities of water upward. This water then falls into the outer tube and carries the air bubbles downward to the expansion cone, here the bubbles turn and rise up against the strong counter-current, and carry waste products to the foam cup. This procedure ensures a long contact time for the bubbles, making this an effective, but compact, skimmer. The miniflotor includes a strong holding plate, allowing vertical movement of the skimmer to regulate the foam production zone. A lime wood air diffuser producing very fine air bubbles is also included.
For the air supply, we recommend the Mistral 200 membrane air pump.
