Aquarium Specialty has just added the new, not even released ATB 10.5 Deluxe Cone Skimmer to their website. The skimmer isn’t set to be released for another few weeks, but you can pre-order them now.
Here’s the specs from Aquarium Specialty:
ATB, known to the world for its revolutionary cone skimmer technology, brings protein skimming to the next level with the Deluxe series. Each Deluxe skimmer is the culmination of years of R&D to achieve the optimal balance of air, water and turbulence reduction. As you expect from ATB, the Deluxe series features the finest precision craftsmanship from the highest quality materials.
Every Deluxe skimmer comes equipped with Triple Cone Technology (TCT)–Three cones in each skimmer to create a constant stable foam, while eliminating turbulence and guiding bubbles for maximum protein to air contact time. Incorporated into the inner most TCT element is the newly designed and oversized Double Bubble Plate (DBP) for additional turbulence reduction.
