The Supreme Skilter 400 is a total
system, combining a protein skimmer with chemical, mechanical, and biological
filtration techniques. It is basically a protein skimmer and aerating power
filter in one compact, easy-to-use unit. It is an ideal primary filter for 30 to
100 gallon saltwater aquariums. The protein skimmer portion of the system will
handle aquariums up to 125 gallons, provided additional filtration is present.
The Skilter 400 is easy to operate. The unit hangs on the back of the aquarium,
just like a standard power filter. It is made of high impact plastic for years
of dependable use, even under the adverse conditions of a saltwater environment.
The Skilter 400 employs a quiet, dependable power unit and impeller assembly.
Although compact, this powerful system pumps up to 400 gallons per hour.
The Skilter 400 provides three stages of filtration as it passes through the
Supreme Bio-Matrix cartridge. First, it is mechanically filtered by the dense
polyester filter material. It then passes through an activated carbon medium
that is specially designed to be an effective chemical filter. Finally, the
entire cartridge, surrounded by its unique clam-shell style frame, acts as an
efficient biological filter. The snap-together cartridge is easy to replace and
allows for either partial or total change of the filter media. This assures
uninterrupted bacterial filtration. The Skilter 400 uses two Bio Matrix
The added protein skimming capability of the Skilter 400 helps to remove waste
products before they become harmful to the aquarium environment. Air is injected
into the saltwater creating millions for very fine bubbles. Potentially
dangerous protein compounds and toxins adhere to the surface of the bubbles.
This frothy waste continues to accumulate until it pushed its way up into the
collection tray. Cleaning the collection tray is quick and simple.
The saltwater that is filtered by the Skilter 400 is virtually saturated with
oxygen. This increased amount of oxygen that re-enters the aquarium water helps
provide a better environment for fish and invertebrates alike.
