Details finally came out for Red Sea’s newest product, the C-Skim 1200. You’ll remember that we did mention the C-Skim protein skimmer a few months ago at Interzoo 2008 with Red Sea’s arrival of the Red Sea Max 250. The C-Skim features: highly effective skim reactor, Integral neck washing system, FoamViewâ„¢ skim adjustment window, 450 lph (120 gph) air injection, Stand-alone or In-sump. Of all those features the one that caught our eye the most is of course the neck washing system.Â “The patent pending integrated neck washing system developed specifically for the C-Skim diverts the water from the skim chamber to an annular spray ring around the top of the neck that sprays concentrated jets of water onto the inside of the neck, washing all of the accumulated sludge back into the reaction chamber. Returning the water flow back to the skim chamber flushes the sludge into the collection cup for easy disposal.” Taking up a footprint of 13.4 x 10 inch including aspiration pump and having a height of 21 1/4 inches we are very interested to see how this protein skimmer performs. For tanks up to 100 gallons with heavy SPS stocking or up to 175 gallons for heavy LPS stocking. No word on price, but we don’t expect this to be a budget hobbyist skimmer.
