In today's world of small, open-top aquariums, it's never been more important to have a clean air-water interface. So-called "surface-active" compounds, as well as oils, organic acids, dust, and other substances can build up over time, creating a nasty film that compromises efficient gas exchange by preventing fresh air from entering- and harmful gasses from escaping- the water column. This film can also reduce light penetration into the aquarium, a bummer if you're trying to grow demanding aquatic plants! Removing this stuff is not a task to be taken lightly.
You've got a great tool to do the job in the Eheim "Skim 350" surface skimmer! This unit effectively removes unsightly and hard-to-remove film that develops on the water surface- and does it quietly! It's compact, easy to hide, and operates on only 5 watts of power! It conveniently suction-mounts inside your aquarium for energy efficiency and simple installation.
The Eheim Skim 350 surface skimmer enhances filtration and water circulation to improve water quality in any aquatic setup. It's compact design allows convenient use in low-water setups including paludariums, vivariums, and aquatic terrariums. It's also a great supplementary filter for small aquariums. The Eheim Skim350 Surface Skimmer features an 80-gph pump and measures approximately 1-1/2" x 2-1/4" x 5" high. This reliable unit has a 3-year manufacturer guarantee.
All in all, a great solution to one of those annoying aspects of aquarium keeping! We just love this unit for the features, value, and legendary Eheim quality!
