Hi all I found a website on building a diy protein skimmer with full pictures and instructions seems like quite a decent build from all the other diys i have seen floating around on the net Reef Workshop - DIY Protein Skimmer. Andre ReefAquatics. Fraser W , with all due respect, skimmers nowadays have become so affordable, if you want to run a reef, your skimmer is the heart of your filtration, I would highly recommend you not waste time time diy'ing a skimmer. I've seen many of these that worked for 2 months.
Bite the bullet get you a great skimmer and spend the time dyi'ing time on other things. Last edited by a moderator: 26 Nov Andre ReefAquatics i do understand where you are coming from and that the skimmer is most important part of the filtration. I know that you can get decent skimmers for R and more but for me its not affordable as i have gone over budget setting up my tank. If you really want to build your own read this. Skimmer Design I too this year will be fabricating my own skimmer for my large system. Yes sometimes it doesn't turn out cheap once everything has been put together.

Skimmer can be removed from the bracket for in-sump or stand-alone sump connection should you move to a sump setup. Don't have the space behind the aquarium? Hang this skimmer on the front or side for a few days to remove protein then take it off until the next week. Much more efficient than any of the small "toy" hang-on skimmers.

For all Lifereef Protein Skimmers. The "short cup" is just a collection cup that is 1" less in height than the stock cup. Sometimes the cabinet height is just not enough by fractions of an inch so by using the short cup you can have the stock skimmer where all the perforance is without having to accept someone else's short skimmer.
No additional charge with skimmer purchase. The Mazzei Venturi is "the original" venturi that got the entire venturi-driven protein skimmer industry going over 24 years ago. Many venturis came after the Mazzei, but this is the king of venturis and continues to be a superb performer. The Mazzei Venturis are used on all the skimmers below and are an option for the skimmers above. The Mazzei allows a larger volume of water to be pushed through the venturi and skimmer thus drawing in more air and hence more bubbles.

A slight improvement is acheived by more water flow and increased bubble volume, and that's what skimming is all about! Mazzei Venturi is stock venturi on skimmers below Ozone Kit to allow the use of ozone injection into the venturi suction. Other tubing diameters are available. In a given height skimmer you can only obtain a certain amount of skimming action.
