The Saltwater Connection, makers of fine inexpensive protein skimmers have new models in the works. Both of these new models are cone skimmers as is the current rage within the industry. The first model SWC160 Cone has a 9″ x 7″ x 20″ footprint running a atman 2500 hybrid pinwheel. That pump is expected to take up 750-600 lph of air. The SWC160 skimmer is suggested for 150 gallons of bioload and will retail for $249.99. Up next the SWC120 cone skimmer which has a 7″ x 6″ x 18″ footprint and uses the smaller atman 1200 pinwheel pump. That pump will take in a respectable 270-300 lph of air and suggested for a 75 gallon or smaller bioload tank. Retail is going to come in at $199.99. Both of the these new skimmers SWC160 and the SWC120 should be available either late January of early February.
