ARKA® Core skimmer
Meerwasser / technical products / Performance re-defined


What makes the ARKA® Core skimmer so special?

• Special conical diffusers achieve unprecedented foam action
• Extremely compact design – ample space in every sump
• Specially developed and modified high-quality Sicce pump – Made in Italy
• Quiet and energy efficient
• Easy to maintain - next level

The conical body of the ARKA® Core skimmer, the advanced bubble chamber and conical diffusers work in synergy to mix air and water with the highest efficiency.

The special design eliminates turbulent flows and swirls that would affect performance. The new BABY-SKIM diffusors enable a stable laminar flow in the reaction chamber, which achieves unprecedented skimmer performance and efficiency. The hybrid cone design maximises the reaction chamber size and
thus facilitates efficient removal of harmful substances. The innovative bubble chamber reduces turbulences to a minimum and generates a stable laminar flow, which enhances bubble transfer and increases skimming performance.

The innovative bubble chamber combined with the powerful and high-quality Sicce Beast needle wheel pump generates ideal air bubbles, which guide proteins and other waste substances rapidly and efficiently through the cone body into the collection container.

The ARKA® Core skimmers were precisely calculated and developed by computer and equipped with the latest technology to achieve performance that will meet all your expectations.

The ARKA® Core skimmers are made from a highly polished cast cell acrylic glass and contain highend components such as:

• Advanced bubble chamber
• Hybrid cone body
• Adjustable air silencer
• Specially developed needle wheel
• Whisper-quiet and highly efficient quality pump


High-performance pumps – Made in Italy

The optimised 220V ‘Beast’ needle wheel pumps manufactured by Sicce guarantee high air output and balanced bubble action to reliably remove proteins and organic substances from the aquarium. Maintenance is reduced to a minimum to leave you with more time for your aquarium.

A reef in your living room – a low-noise backdrop

The ARKA® Core skimmers were developed from the ground up for use in living rooms. A built-in air
inlet silencer reduces noises for almost silent operation. Rubber feet insulate noises and reduce vibrations.
