Red Sea Berlin X2 Turbo Protein Skimmer Information



Part #: 50055

If you want a filtration device that will bring you more than what youve paid for, then you should definitely try out the Red Sea Berlin X2 Turbo Protein Skimmer from Pet Store. This gadget provides you with a very efficient cleaning operation. It has a triple pass feature, which makes sure that the water is constantly being sifted through, preventing the most minuscule debris and traces of elements from going back to your aquarium. Best of all, it is quite safe to use in saltwater tanks, as its skimming power will not affect the natural properties of the liquid, nor will it stop the production of oxygen.

This protein skimmer comes with its own aspirator, which functions like a pump, producing micro-bubbles that will give the filter more access to the water. You will also love its stylish design, which has managed to compress all its beneficial components into one small package. It is easy to install by cables and mounts. It can also be hung outside your aquarium.

Experience a deeper kind of aquarium cleaning by installing the Red Sea Berlin X2 Turbo Protein Skimmer. This is truly one of the best filtration systems that is now available on the market. Try it today, and see for yourself how it will benefit your aquatic inhabitants.

Collection Cup with built in foam-view window

Patented window built into the side of the skimmer neck allows for accurate real time evaluation of foam production.

The Triple-Pass Principle

Red Seas patented Triple-Pass maximizes the water air contact time inside the skimmer reaction chamber stripping the aquarium water for even the smallest traces of organic pollutants, while minimizing the external dimensions and footprint of the product. By forcing the water-air mixture along a circuitous route, the Berlin X2 achieves a total surface area equal to that of much larger conventional skimmers.

  • Removes even the smallest traces of organic pollutants from aquarium water

Hang-on-tank kit

Enables the Berlin X2 to be quickly and easily converted from in-sump to hang-on configuration, offering the user greater flexibility and customization possibilities. The hang-on-tank kits is comprised of quick-fit parts for user-friendly installation and maintenance.

Long term pollutant reduction

Tests have shown that over time the Berlin X2 is extremely effective in lowering the level of oxygen-consuming pollutants (COD/BOD) in the aquarium water.

How do we rate our skimmers?

The recommended aquarium volume ratings for the Berlin X2 have been calculated according the optimum turnover rate per aquarium type, as determined by laboratory test conducted at Red Sea. They are as follows:
  • Fish tank: 1 turnover/h
  • Soft Corals (LPS): 1.5-2 turnover/h
  • Hard Corals (SPS): 3-4 turnover/h

Comments: It is very simple to put together but has a huge I mean huge powerhead that will stand out on your tank. Difficult to balance out the water flow and the air vavle I had trouble and also still havent got it to work properly. Collection gets full too fast if you dont set it up right.

Good Start Product Review by JOSHUA P ROGERS (Posted on 10/6/09)

Comments: The pump that is included is junk. The Red Sea Berlin skimmer body is good quality and collection cup is easy to remove and clean. This is a good skimmer for the beginer because it is inexpensive and can remove a decent amount of waste, but don't waste your money or time with the Turbo model.

Bam Product Review by BLAKE MOHRMANN (Posted on 9/7/10)

Comments: I purchased this skimmer 3 years ago from the LFS where I bought my tank+stand+sump from when I first started out with SW.

So far I have gone through 3 impellers @ $30 each (half the cost of the original purchase price) for replacement. The 3rd one has since broken and instead of replacing I used marine epoxy from home depot to fix it and its still in service.

However as mentioned before, every single time I have had to power this skimmer off, it will not come back on without opening the pump and freeing the impeller.

The build quality on the rest of the skimmer is ok, but since you can not upgrade the pumps, I would and am currently, looking at a different brand skimmer for my 120 gallon tank.

Unsatisfied!!! Product Review by BRYAN METZMEIER (Posted on 1/8/10)

Comments: I am very disappointed with this skimmer. The pump will not restart after a power failure. It must be disassembled to get the impeller to turn. Red Sea did send two new impellers and a new pump, but it still doesn't work.
