Pssssst... there is a secret we need to tell you. Most aquarium manufacturers and re-sellers' "gallon" ratings for aquariums are not an accurate representation of how many gallons the aquarium will hold. Some aquarium brands are not even close.

As technology continues to improve, it becomes a little bit easier for us to maintain ideal conditions for our reef tanks. But as our improves, our options seem to be multiplying too. Having choices, as a consumer, is usually a good thing. But when it comes to the , there are so many brands and so many options that choices can sometimes be overwhelming for the newcomer to the hobby. Whether you are in the market for your first protein skimmer or are looking to upgrade your existing protein skimmer, this article should help you sort through all the options and help you find the best protein skimmer brands for your reef aquarium.SeaClone is the first protein skimmer for many reef aquarium enthusiasts, probably because if the affordable price and the fact that it is a brand that is available even in the larger national pet store chains. The problem is that this skimmer doesn’t have a reputation for being all that efficient and can therefore be quickly outgrown. SeaClone features a turbo-venturi injection system. The $90 unit is paired with a Maxi-Jet 1200 pump rated for tanks up to 100 gallons.One of the most important factors when determining the best protein skimmer to brand to select is the size rating for the skimmer. Every skimmer is rated for a certain size tank, based on the amount of skimmate they can remove from the water, factoring in design, pump size, etc. If you buy a protein skimmer that is under-sized for your aquarium, you run the risk of always struggling to keep nutrient levels down. Take into account that the marketing messages for these skimmers tend to accentuate the positive, and consider purchasing a skimmer that is rated a little bit higher than the size of your tank–or a model where your tank is in the middle of the range.Vertex protein skimmer is my vote for the best top-of-the-line protein skimmer brand for a reef aquarium. They can be a bit pricey, but if you want the best for your reef aquarium, Vertex is a good choice. The Vertex line starts out at a meager $300 (for the model, which is rated up to 100 gallons, is 8.5 in x 11 in x 20 in and tops out over $1500 for the Vertex Alpha 300 model, which is 18 in x 23.5 in x 27 in. Designed and assembled in Germany, these protein skimmers are powerhouses (or is it spelled powerhaus?) and beautiful.
