Now that the cone protein skimmer bandwagon is in full swing, it’s time for a recap of which company is making what. With all the new skoners popping up these days, you might be overwhelmed at the choice of cone protein skimmers on the market. No fear because Reef Builders is here with the full rundown on all the skoner models we’ve reported in on in just the last few months. Hit the read link to read about a skoner that’s right for you.
ATB– The original cone protein skimmer maker still has more models than anyone else but the competition is hot on their tail. The hang-on skoner should be coming to market soon.
Warner Marine– Although WM was the second company to announce a cone, they have yet to get their skoner to market. We hear that some shipments of the k1 are on their way and this model is one which we are very anxious to test out.
Royal-Exclusiv/Vertex– The forthcoming Alpha series should be hitting US shores any day now. With a Red Dragon under the hood this cone skimmer line is bound toÂ stand out in the croded skoner crowd.
Bubble Pioneer– This me-too skoner will likely remain limited to Chinese and other Asian vendors, at least until Coralife decides they want a skoner rebadge.
Skimz Kone– thisÂ skoner seems to be a little better built than all the Chinese injection molded cones but only time will tell if we’ll ever see more than a computer generated rendition.
Eshopps– Since Eshopps does have a couple US dealers, it’s likely that this toy is one of the few Asian skoners that we are likely to see. If you’re considering this than you’re not really in the market for a cone skimmer are you?
Hurricone– This line of partially conical protein skimmers is included in this roundup by default. The body is not really a cone, it just has a slightly larger than usual neck but it makes the roundup in name only.
