Skimmers are great for saltwater aquariums – they remove detritus as well as impurities from your water using only bubbles. For years we’ve tried to keep our tanks clean using chemicals and other unnatural means, but recently there has been a push for more natural ways to better our hobby – that’s where the skimmer steps in. A skimmer is a tube or column that is full of water. By forcing thousands of small bubbles through this column of water, impurities ad hear to the bubbles due to surface tension and are drawn to the top. At the top of a skimmer is the collection cup – impurities overflow into this cub where they can be easily disposed of.
