Precision Marine Bullet-2 Protein Skimmer Information


Product Manuals & Documentation

Excess protein in the aquarium leads to the build-up of ammonia, which leads up to the growth of parasitic algae that can take over your whole aquarium in no time at all. Thus, it is necessary to remove excess protein from the tank on a regular basis.

Doing it by hand is not reliable, though. This task calls for the Precision Marine Bullet-2 Protein Skimmer from Pet Store. The second skimmer in a line of three Bullet skimmers, this particular skimmer can take on tanks with a 250gallon capacity. Standing at two feet tall, this skimmer doesn't take much space at all in comparison to its capacity.

Typical skimmers use bubbles to attract protein. Bubbles break the surface tension of the water, making the protein stick to the bubble surface instead of to the water surface. The bubbles are carried into the skimmer where they pop. By this time, the protein is already trapped in the skimmer and is deposited to a container within for easy disposal later.

However, the Precision Marine Bullet-2 Protein Skimmer is not typical, It creates big blobs of foam instead of bubbles. Foam is made up of a lot of really small bubbles, so obviously, foam can break surface tension at a faster rate and thus, can attract more protein.

The Precision Marine Bullet 2 protein skimmer uses a Beckett Foam injector to create copious amounts of foam. Somewhat compact at less than 28" this skimmer will handle systems up to 250 gallons. Best when used with a pump which can provide 1200 gph at a 4` head i.e. a Mag 18, GenX PCX40 (Mak 4), Iwaki 40RLT.

bulletproof Bullet 1

Experience Level: Beginner


Comments: PM Bullet 1 skimmer came with a complete tank setup I purchased 6 months ago. 75g tank + 30g sump has been running on this great skimmer for over 3 years now. Skims like a champ, produces thick dark skimmate, easy to clean, quiet. Design gives you flexibility: run either externally or in-sump, & can use whatever pump you prefer - no "special" pump needed, just run with a pump that meets manufacturer's recommended flow rates. Currently running on an equally bulletproof Mag 12 pump. Highly recommend this skimmer.

Comments: Superlative Quality + performance. Don't be cheap on the pump either. I have The Bullet 1 on a 165 gal mixed reef. I use ozone. My buds always state how clear my water is. No abundance of chunks floating around, well scrubbed. Buy one, you will not regret it.

Precision Marine Bullet 1 Skim

Comments: I bought the Bullet One skimmer for use on an Oceanic 76 gallon half cylinder tank. Precision's provided dimensions of the skimmer are not accurate, as they do not count the side-mounted gate valve or PVC elbow. DOUBLE WIDTH DIMENSIONS THEY PROVIDE! Make sure you have enough room in your stand! I ended up having to drill a hole in my sump for the elbow to enter and a wood box for the skimmer to sit up high enough. The owner's manual (download only) was outdated, poorly illustrated, and weakly written. Customer service was prompt and helpful. The skimmer unit itself is very high quality, the Becket air injector provides excellent skimming bubbles, and everything's easy to take apart and clean. The unit quickly and thoroughly skims. The PanX100 pump (not provided, but recommended by Precision) was expensive but totally quiet, however, the return water from the skimmer is noisy as it dumps into the sump and it took multiple sponges to dampen the noise and bubbles. I'd buy another without hesitation.

BEST SKIMMER EVER

Comments: Well everything that they say is true. This is the best protein skimmer I have ever had. I have used several protein skimmers in the past, and it was always a problem keeping them dialed in to produce foam. They say in the manual that the skimmer needs one to two days for break in. Well within a few hours it had a column of foam that I can’t believe. Its pulling stuff out of my tank when the other skimmer was sitting there making nothing. It’s worth the money. I can’t wait to see the difference in my water quality as time goes on. I would recommend this to anyone/everyone

Comments: Bullet 2 with Mak-4 pump, Excellent skimmer, had it for 7 years, not hard to dial in at all, just use their recommended water level inside the skimmer tube and you'll get the dryest foam, and if you prefer wetter foam, just adjust the gate valve.

Comments: The title says most of what I feel about this skimmer. It was extremely easy to adjust. Once I had tightened the becket injection and was not sucking in excess air. I plumbed the unit as an external and love how much smaller it is compared to my last skimmer and seems to be working better than my last skimmer. I like that the cup is stationary and uses an external collection chamber. I made my own but I think I am going to buy the one they make to reduce the smell from collection cup. It works better than any skimmer I have used to date and was well worth the price. Super fine bubbles and awesome results in as little as 24 hours.

Comments: This is an excellent skimmer. I replaced a TurboFloat II skimmer with this one and the difference was amazing. I used a Gen-X 1200 gal/hour pump for the supply and couldn't believe how effiencent the skimmer was. Using a gate valve will make adjusting the water level in the skimmer much easier. I'm in the process of setting up a new 120 gallon and plan to getting another one.

Comments: This skimmer is as good as they claim it is. You would not believe the crap it is pulling out of my system and I had another skimmer running before this one. I would recommend this skimmer to all my friends.
