The highly-rated HOB-1 skimmer is now available in an in-sump version!
The AquaMaxx WS-1 protein skimmer features an incredibly responsive collection cup and an amazingly powerful submersible pump. It is rated up to 65 gallons in a design thin and light enough to be placed on a nano aquarium, all-in-one style aquarium or other small saltwater aquarium.
The AquaMaxx WS-1 protein skimmer removes organic waste from aquarium water. It creates a strong mix of small air bubbles and turbulent water movement to force protein, waste and other materials into a collection cup for easy removal. The new Conical diffusers help to reduce turbulence in the reaction chamber and achieve more-stable, laminar flow to maximize performance.
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.

ReviewsCJGot this to replace the skimmer that came with my max e-170 and my lord is the difference night and day. First, the amount of space in the rear sump this thing clears up for you is fantastic. Second, the skimmer is amazing and works so well right out of the box (I rinsed it first as there was some oily film from manufacturing). Thick skimmate, cleaner water, happy tank. Side note though, the skimmer is pretty short so you need tall but narrow (hard to find) stand or do what I did and glue magnets to it and suspend it in the water column at your desired height, up to you. Also shout out to intank, they were the only retailer who had this in stock and wasn't price gouging. Shipping was also super fast, I think my order was processed the next day. I'm now using Intank for my waterbox needs as well and will continue to do so for the future.
