The silent heart of your aquarium filtration system

UltraReef AKULA - for small and medium-sized aquariums: The Ultra Reef Skimmer type AKULA UKS is an internal skimmer with a pump that meet the filtration requirements of modern saltwater aquariums with ease. High performance, design and quality in a compact, competitive product for small and medium-sized aquariums.

The Ultra Reef AKULA protein skimmer is an essential addition to any aquarium. Compact, robust and with an advanced pump, the skimmer works quietly and efficiently to remove contaminants from your aquarium, leaving the water clean, clear and healthy for your marine life.

Quality craftsmanship down to the screws

The Ultra Reef AKULA skimmers are based on Italian design and production. Paired with high-quality materials this makes Ultra Reef skimmers a premium piece of equipment for any aquarium. The parts are made from full blocks of ultra-durable PVC, while the skimmer is fitted with anti-corrosive titanium screws for an extremely long service life. For further proof of its quality, look no further than Ultra Reef's ISO 9001 quality certification.

Effective contaminant disposal for the cleanest, clearest water

The Ultra Reef AKULA is fitted with a new Ultra Reef PSK+ Plus needle wheel pump designed especially by Sicce, which injects large volumes of air into the water. This produces a concentrated layer of foam and allows surfactants to be filtered out of the tank. This minimises degradation, enhances oxygenation and leaves tank water exceptionally clean and clear.

Precise adjustment for an optimum nutrient content

The adjusting screws can be used to alter the skimmer's settings and volume of induced air. As well as the excellent separation of air and water, this allows for an optimum nutrient content and water quality in any tank. The AKULA even creates a high level of stability in new aquariums (which contain few foaming agents). The skimmers are ideal for dry and wet skimming.

Ultra quiet operation

The skimmer has an integrated silencer that minimises the noise caused by the water during pumping. The compact exhaust system is submerged in the base of the skimmerfor silent operation as the clean water is discharged back into the tank. Rubber feet on the bottom absorb vibrations.

Efficient to run and maintain

The PVC components can all be disassembled (and replaced as required), while the needle wheel pump can be accessed by removing the titanium locking screws on the conical chamber. The skimmer also has an innovative Easy Flip seal, which allow the easy removal of componenets to clean the unit.
