JBJ 28 Gallon Nano Cube Protein Skimmer Kit Information




Aquariums can get dirty quickly. It's not a surprise, though - all those plants, fishes, corals, food products, vitamins and supplements in just one place can sure accumulate a lot of dirt in a short period of time.

Because dirt collects fast, you have to be faster with cleaning up. Luckily, you don't have to do it manually all by yourself. A lot of tools are available to you, one of which is the JBJ 28 Gallon Nano Cube Protein Skimmer Kit from Pet Store, a skimmer that skims off the thin layer of protein that forms on the water surface.

The principle behind a skimmer is simple: It's a small cylinder with an air pump which draws in water. Then, the air stone inside it creates bubbles from the drawn water. The protein residue sticks to the bubbles' surface, so when the bubbles enter the cylinder, the residue does, too. When the bubbles pop, the residue remains inside the cylinder and is then collected in a cup inside it for later disposal.

The JBJ 28 Gallon Nano Cube Protein Skimmer Kit does all that automatically and regularly. It is easy to install inside your aquarium. It is already equipped with a removable cup used for collecting residue, and also comes with its own air pump and air stone. As a bonus, it also has an air tube to improve oxygenation in your aquarium.

Comments: I don't understand why this people don't like this skimmer. For the money, it is great. Yes, the pump is a little loud, but if you have a fresh water tank you are use to this "pump" noise. The pump started working right way, within 6 hours of hooking it up. Instructions would have been nice. Just adjust the air flow and the hieght of the skimmer to get the correct skimming. Very happy with this purchase.

Comments: Skimmer works great in the JBJ 28 Gallon Nano Cube. Pump is very noisy but works well. I'll probably replace pump down the road.

Comments: Pump is noisy, but does produce a lot of air flow. On its lowest setting it still produces enough foam. I may replace with a less noisy pump later. The collection cup is too big for the back. I had to cut out a large section of the plastic edging from the tank to make it fit. Even after this, I still have to remove the cup in order to open the canopy. Also, it makes it difficult to remove the filter cartridge from the middle section of the tank. But the skimmer is working as advertised, three stars for that.

Comments: I bought my NanoCube 28 HQI and got this protein skimmer for free with my order. The skimmer works ok but the pump is loud and after about 2 months the pump's air flow started getting weaker and made a whistling noise which only made the pump that much more obnoxious. I ended up replacing the pump with a Tetra 60G 2 outlet whisper pump. I can'e even hear the pump now. But still the skimmer could be better. My tank has a full load with a FOWLR setup and has a pretty noticable amount of particulate matter that the skimmer just won't collect anymore. And mine was free, I wouldn't think about paying 50 bucks for it. save yourself the money and spend that 50 bucks on a venturi nano skimmer.

Comments: I have had the skimmer running for 4 days now on a 10 hour cycle at night. It is working perfectly on my 28 gal. JBJ Nano. It will take a while for the skimmer to break in so don't be frustrated. To raise light cover just remove the skimmer cup, my hood goes all the way up with it removed. I would suggest you use a air valve unit ($2.00 from local pet store) for the air lines, the t-valve that comes with it pinches the output lines a bit.
