    The new AquaMaxx EM Series protein skimmers are looking to save you space and power with AquaMaxx’s newest skimmer design. The company is slowly putting some intriguing looking products on the market with a consumer-friendly pricetag and these new skimmers hit both square on the head. The new*AquaMaxx EcoMaxx EM Series skimmers are available in five sizes with the AquaMaxx EcoMaxx EM100 and EM200 being the first two we’re seeing available at online retailers.

    The AquaMaxx EcoMaxx EM Series are designed for in-sump use and utilize Sicce needlewheel pumps with ratings for aquariums up to 600 gallons. The space-saving design positions the pump on the bottom of the skimmer (mounted externally on the EM100 and internally on the EM200) saving you valuable real estate inside your sump.

    If the build quality of the*EM Series skimmers is comparable to the other AquaMaxx products we have seen, these should feature quality materials and features we are used to seeing on top-of-the-line products. All the EcoMaxx EM skimmers feature*bubble plates, modified cone necks, air silencers and needle wheel impellers to not only maximum performance and efficiency but give you relatively quiet operation.

    As we mentioned before, there are two of the five skimmers hitting online retailers right now with the other three most likely available from your favorite AquaMaxx dealer. The smaller EM100 is rated for aquariums up to 120 gallons with a 8.6 x 6.3 in. footprint and measuring in at just under 22 in. tall with a $249.99 price tag. The larger EM200 is rated for up to*240 gallons with a*6.7 x 9.8 in. footprint and measures in right under 23 in. with a $299.99 price tag.

    The handful of reviews online so far are pretty positive and as these skimmers are probably just reaching the solid break-in period for most owners who just picked these up, we can expect to hear more input over time. Read on for the full specs.
