Tunze is celebrating 50 years of making protein skimmers by showcasing one of their original protein skimmer designs at Interzoo 2014. It is crazy to thing Tunze has been in the skimmer business for half a century! The skimmer on display is running on an older Tunze pump, as evidenced by the “Made in West Germany”.
Take note of how well this thing skims. The bubble size and density is impressive for a skimmer out of the 1960s, utilizing a tried-and-true venturi design. The cooling fan on pump whirred under the shielding of an acrylic roof. It’s funny that one of the sexiest products to check out is something designed out of a time when keeping corals thriving in captivity wasn’t even really possible for the average hobbyist. We wish Tunze many more great years innovating skimmers and other unique products!
