View Full Version : DIY protein skimmer

I want to build a DIY protein skimmer but I'm not even sure where to start. I've seen a number of threads on DIY protein skimmers but am not sure which plans I should use. Does any body have any recommendations, or could anyone point me in the general direction to start out? I'm wanting a skimmer for a 300-400 gallon system and would like to make the most efficient skimmer possible.

as a starting point, for this size system i would recommend a wide body recirc skimmer. 10-14" diameter and about 24-30 inches high. this may be a little overkill but would account for any "add-ons" in the future.
