AquaMaxx is a USA based company that came into the market in mid-2008, and released their line of exceptionally crafted protein skimmers in 2010. AquaMaxx Protein Skimmers are truly unique in both their bubble plate design and efficiency. They meticulously research and engineer their products to ensure ease of use, superior construction, and outstanding performance. These are three things that lead us to carry them as one of our top brands here at Reef2Land. To see how AquaMaxx compares to the competition, visit our Protein Skimmer Power Rankings page.
AquaMaxx Protein Skimmers are one of the most vital parts to keeping any successful saltwater or reef aquarium. For the particles that are small enough to pass through natural filtration, that is what protein skimmers are for. The dissolved organic compounds (such as decaying food and waste particles) attach to the large amounts of bubbles produced by the skimmer pump. It is then pushed to the top of the skimmer neck, where the bubbles pop, and the waste is left in the collection cup. These devices also play a significant role in tank health by adding dissolved oxygen to your aquarium. Protein Skimmers help maintain optimum water conditions for all of your tank inhabitants.
