The Somatic 60S Internal Protein Skimmer can be used on any type of saltwater aquarium and is specifically designed for use with the Somatic 60 Filtration System.



Designed for use with the Somatic 60 Filtration System.

Many protein skimmers can be twice the price but only have half the features. Somatic has created a budget friendly skimmer that does not leave you disappointed. Many of the little features that are only found on high-end skimmers are incorporated into the 60S Space Saving Skimmer. From laser engraved markings on the wedge pipe to polished and fully welded seams all around. The integrated silencer sits in the top of the wedge pipe keeping it protected and out of your way for maintenance around the sump area. The silencer also has a nipple that can be connected to CO2 Scrubbers or other accessories.


The custom Sicce pump was specifically designed for Somatic skimmers, to their specifications. The pumps impeller and venturi design pull in copious amounts of water and air, mixing them together and pushing them up towards the dispersion bubble plate. The bubble plate considerably reduces turbulence while the wine body shape of the skimmer helps remove any further disturbance of bubbles directing them up into the neck and making a seamless transition into the collection cup producing high-quality skimmate.
