Shop the LiveAquaria® Skimmers category and achieve higher water quality and healthy marine aquarium inhabitants. Protein Skimmers, also known as "foam fractionators," are excellent supplemental filtration devices for saltwater aquariums. The addition of a protein skimmer helps improve aquarium water quality by effectively removing protein and other organic waste materials. Protein skimmers allow mechanical, chemical, and biological filtration to work more efficiently and provide numerous other benefits for superior water quality and clarity.

Some of the many secondary benefits of protein skimmers include phosphate reduction to help prevent murky or cloudy tank water conditions as well as curb aggressive nuisance algae growth. Protein skimmers also help promote proper gas exchange and increase oxygen level for healthy inhabitants. Employing a protein skimmer also helps maintain stable pH by preventing acidic condition due to carbon dioxide buildup that can gradually erode buffering capacity.
