The Aqua Medic Turboflotor 5000 Shorty Compact is a powerful skimmer for aquaria up to 400 gal., designed for in-cabinet installation. Like the larger models, they are supplied with a venturi pump and our patented needle wheel impeller. The water supply to the skimmer requires a second circulation pump with a capacity of min. 500 gph. The skimmer may also be directly connected to the overflow of the aquarium. In this case it is recommended that a bypass be installed to control the water flow to the skimmer, especially if powerful return pumps are used. Reduced space requirement of only app. 13.5 in. x 15 in. Total height with foam cup app. 25 in. (footprint app. 12 in. x 15.7 in.). Ozone resistant protein skimmer.
