The AQUARIO NEO Skimmer in Version 2 is built as a topper for the Neo Flow Set. This innovative and transparent attachment is made out of PETG (Polyethylene terephthalate modified with Glycol). In contrast to other skimmers, it is not attached to the filter inflow but the filter outflow. Therefore, it could be designed very small and discreet, does not take as much precious space in the aquarium and does not appear as bulky as other skimmers. Moreover, the Neo Skimmer convinces with its minimalistic design and its shatterproof body. It is ideal for purisitic aquascapes because the subtle design does not distract the sight.

The Neo Skimmer cares for a cristal-clear water surface by shredding the unwanted bacteria film into very fine parts so that it loses its buoyancy. This process also promots the gas exchange at the surface. Over time, the cruhsed bacteria film is sucked into the filter through the inflow, where they are biologically dismantled.
In addition to its other persuasive features, the skimmer has an adjustable flowrate. The bevelled pipe can be rotated in the outflow tube for this purpose. Even at a very slow flow rate, the skimmer removes scum very effectively.
- Skimmer made of PETG
- Minimalistic design
- Transparent and shatterproof material
- Flowrate can be adjusted
For the optimal work of the skimmer V.2, the short side of the old version inlet is too short with its 8 cm, because the skimmer reaches a bit further into the water than the first version. To be able to use the V.2 skimmer without any reduction of power, the long side of the inlet is shortened to 11 cm. The pipe can then be hung in the pool with the shortened side and the V.2 skimmer. A simple saw can be used to shorten the pipe.
As you can see in the photo, the dimensions refer to the inner side of the pipe.

When algae start forming on your PETG equipment or when larger and larger bubbles emerge from your ceramic diffusor it is time for cleaning. PETG-ware is easy to clean, however, it should be done diligently. After the cleaning process, your PETG products will be as good as new.
- You'll need a household bleach containing chlorine without perfumes. When working with chlorine bleach, please make sure you absolutely observe the manufacturer's safety notes.
- Pour some of the bleach into a container and mix with an equal amount of water. Mix so much of this solution that the PETG products you wish to clean are entirely covered
- Soak the PETG-ware in the solution for 1 to 4 hours (depending on the severity of the stains)
- Take it out and rinse thoroughly
- Now all the stains ought to be gone, and your PETG-ware should shine as if new
You'll find an extensive how-to (in German) with pictures in our Aquascaping Wiki under Glaswaren reinigen.
