AquaMaxx HOB-1 Hang-On-Back Protein Skimmer Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

*New Upgrades - Current models include an upgraded bubble plate, re-designed hang-on bracket, and a larger collection cup as shown in the product photos.

The AquaMaxx Hang on Back Series I (HOB-1) protein skimmer features an incredibly responsive collection cup and an amazingly powerful submersible pump. It is rated up to 75 gallons in a design thin and light enough to be placed on a nano aquarium or other small saltwater aquarium.

The AquaMaxx HOB Series I 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.

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.

EASE OF USE
AquaMaxx HOB Series I protein skimmers are easy to setup and maintain. Just move the collection cup up or down to adjust the foam level to wet or dry.

Maintenance is simple. A removable collection cup makes cleaning easy. Plus, every AquaMaxx protein skimmer includes a drain fitting for hobbyists who want to setup a separate reservoir for skimmate.

Water quality and consistency is crucial to the success of a marine aquarium. An AquaMaxx HOB Series I protein skimmer will help to ensure that success.

COMPACT DESIGN
AquaMaxx protein skimmers were designed from the ground up with the hobbyist in mind. AquaMaxx HOB Series I protein skimmers have the pump placed inside the skimmer itself to save space, reduce noise and improve efficiency.

All AquaMaxx protein skimmers are computer designed. Each unit is precision-cut and made of polished cell-cast acrylic.

PERFORMANCE
The AquaMaxx HOB Series I protein skimmer relies on a superbly crafted Italian Sicce Syncra 1.0 pump and AquaMaxx needlewheel impeller to vigorously remove waste from your fish or reef tank. Sicce pumps are well-regarded for their efficiency to move air and water. Combining these dynamic pumps with AquaMaxx protein skimmers saves users considerable energy.

Great Skimmer! Product Review by Fred Oehmke (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: For the past few months, I have been searching for a skimmer to add on my JBJ 28gal LED nano tank. From early reviews, the AquaMaxx HOB-1 had been one of my top choices, however it had been out of stock in all stores for quite a while. This being the case, I started with the AquaEuro Nano Skimmer 2. I don't want to write a review for that product here, but I will say that after five weeks of running and messing around, I was not able to get any skimmate produced. This was right around the time when the AquaMaxx HOB-1 became available.

I have now had the HOB-1 running for two days. Within the first hour I had a half cup of semi-dark/thick skimmate! I have never had a skimmer take to a tank this quick. I am sure it still needs break in time, but I am already sold that this is the best hang on back skimmer on the market today. The internal pump is a Shark 1.0. I am not familiar with this brand, but it does the job thus far. I am impressed with the quality of plastic/acrylic used. Definitely worth the price. Solid build, unique design and immediate results.

outstanding!!! Product Review by JOHN MORGAN (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: i have to say its a great little skimmer that packs a big punch! on the 3rd day it was broken in, and its extreamly quiet! i cant tell its on in my tank. skim mate is very dark in color and the construction is very will made love the blue color. There are a couple of thangs i need to touch on about the skimmer cup that you may or may not encounter. The promblem i had with the collection cup that i notic was prematurely moveing on its own when it was starting fill up with waste! and when i hooked up a drain hose it made it worse! a couple of thangs i did to fix this was making shure that the seal is dry around the cup and i put a rubber band just above the seal for good measure and it doubles as a marker wich i like. the other thang i did was by useing a zip tie around my drain tubeing and hooked it to one of my power cords with just enough tention to keep the weight of the hose off the the colection cup and still be abule to move it up or down. i fell that AQUAMAXX is a great skimmer for the money but i hope they might look into comeing up with a bitter ajustment seal. i still give it a 5 star worth the money

I like it Product Review by MUSE MANN III (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: I like it. The only draw back is the instructions. They need to be thrown out and redone.The online video was the savior of the day for that. The Aquamaxx started skimming as soon as I turned it on. It runs extremely quit compared to the other ones that I have had. I fell that I have got my moneys worth. Just watch out for the instructions. They don't work.

Quite The Shredder! Product Review by Dennis (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: The little sicci pump LAUNCHES the proteins from the water. This skimmer has a bunch of cool features. Very easy to clean and service. If I personally designed a skimmer, it would look and function exactly like this one. Kinda looks like the warner marine h1 but.....it is faaaaaaaaar from it. Love it!

AquaMaxx quiet& efficient Product Review by SCOTT HESLER (Posted on 1/24/14)

Excellent!

Comments: I've been using a AquaC Remora Pro on a 100 gallon Tenecor tank for 5 years. Of all the equipment on the tank that was noisy was the skimmer and the MAG3.
I'm really happy with the AquaMaxx hang-on. Directions are terrible so watch the video. Like the fact the motor is inside the skimmer unit. Produced dry foam by the next morning.
