The main advantage of Neo skimmer in a planted aquarium over oil film removal is its ability to aerate water, simply put the skimmer at night and remove in the morning, plants require oxygen at night and co2 in morning while the lights are on. The skimmer will aerate at night providing oxygen to the plants increasing o2 level. This omits the use of additional accessory such as an air pump.
The New Skimmer V2 released is with updated design with many changes such as longer stem and wider cylinder which prevents the dropping of skimmer as was the main issue in previous V1 version. You also get enhanced skimming capability due to the new design.
1. Neo Skimmer V2 offers the best oil film removal capability with minimal design.
Principle of oil film removal
The oil film that has passed through the Neo Skimmer is crushed very finely and loses its flotation. Eventually, it enters the inlet of various filters and is biologically decomposed.
2. It doesn't take up space.
The largest product, L size, is only 4 cm wide and 4.5 cm high.
It connects to not inlet, but the outlet.
3. It don't need electricity.
Based on Bernoulli's principle, it uses the correlation between flow velocity and pressure.
4. It doesn't trap creatures
Since it is located at the outlet, any creature that enters the skimmer is immediately discharged.
5. It's easy to adjust
The ability to remove the film can be adjusted by moving the part up and down and rotating the left and right sides.
6. Aeration is possible.
Aeration is possible when setting high level
