What are protein skimmers used for in aquariums?Protein Skimmers are additional filtering devices that are vital to successful marine aquariums. In addition to removing proteins and other organic waste materials, protein skimmers help maintain an aquarium that is healthy and healthy. Protein skimmers permit the primary filter system to work more effectively and offer a myriad of advantages for better clarity and quality of water.
BenefitsThe 28G Protein Skimmer depends on the chemical process known as adsorption that helps get rid of organic waste material out of the column. The waste materials stick onto the top of air bubbles and then are taken out of the water. A vigorous mix of water and air inside the protein skimmer reaction chamber creates thousands of these protein-skimming microbubbles. When these bubbles move through the skimmer, any waste stuck to the bubbles gets reduced and then absorbed into the cup for collecting protein from the skimmer. This process of active waste removal used by protein skimmers permits chemical, mechanical, and biological filtration to operate more effectively. View more Protein Skimmers from JBJ Aquarium
