Dirt, fats, proteins and micro-organisms form an oily film at the surface of the aquarium. With the Surface Skimmer, this dirt is continuously extracted, so that the water surface remains clean and clear. This ensures a better oxygen exchange at the water surface and the light can penetrate deeper into the aquarium which means your plants will grow better and faster.
Light penetration at the bottom of the tank is always the least and this is one of the reasons hobbyists struggle with growing carpeting plants. So this skimmer will not only clear your surface but will also help your plants.
The Surface Skimmer is easy to install and the sponge is easy to clean.
