ATB has took it upon themselves to give their 1050 cone skimmer a refresh to 1.5 status. Like other 1.5 updates to skimmer designs you’ll see a more polish design and look that better reflects ATB’s high end quality. The original ATB 1050 protein skimmer looks poor compared to the new 1.5 update. While the econo 1050 ATB cone skimmer could be had for a mere $999 or less, expect to pay much higher for the higher quality counterpart. Contact your local ATB dealer for pricing and availability.
