pacific coast nano skimmer


Recommended Posts

That Pacific Coast Nano Skimmer should be $59.99 or less.

WE hav'em for under $50. $44.99 with your PNWMAS card.

We've had'em for a while. They do look simple. Then again

so did the ealier units out of Eugene 15-20 years ago. They

too were simply 'dimpled' PVC. But many people paid out

big bucks for Top Fathom. In fact Steve at PCI carried them.

We are currently building some nano tanks with built in filter using these skimmers. They will be 24" x 20" x 20".

I have one of these skimmers at home that works great. These little nano tanks are going to be sweet!!


That skimmer would be SLIGHTLY underkill on a 40g tank. I wouldn't use one on more than 20g.


Nano = 20g or less

I have heard the break in period is excessive. thats why a used one intrigued me lol.


The break in period can be pretty long. I guess it depends on your bioload though. Once it gets going though it's very consistent. I never had to adjust mine after break in.
