Ultimate Performance with the Smallest Footprint
The IceCap K3-160 Open Volute Pump (OVP) skimmer provides exceptional filtration performance with the smallest footprint for marine aquariums up to 250 gallons. In addition, IceCap built this skimmer to surpass many challenges other space-saving skimmers on the market cannot. The verticle placement of the pump allows the output to be positioned at the lowest spot possible on the inside of the skimmer. This enhances the air-to-water contact time, makes for less turbulence, and as a result a steadier head of foam. The Simple-to-use pump controller with 10 power levels and a feed timer.

Built to Last
The IceCap K3 160 OVP body is constructed of high-quality acrylic and equipped with the new controllable and efficient DCAIR pinwheel pump that produces an ideal mix of water and air for optimal waste removal at the push of a button.

Bioload Handling
The bioload of an aquarium refers to its ability to process waste in proportion to tank volume. Protein skimmers perform best when the aquarium's bioload matches the bioload rating suggested by the skimmer manufacturer.
