Vertex Omega Protein Skimmers: Powerful Performers with Polished Features



Vertex is known for manufacturing high-quality marine aquarium equipment that is both stylish and functional. The Vertex Omega Series line of protein skimmers are a prime example of this and we are excited to show you just how awesome these new skimmers are today.

Omega Series skimmers are available in four sizes and are suitable for aquariums ranging from 50 to 200 gallons. All models feature modified, Italian-made Sicce pump motors that are customized specifically for Vertex skimmers to increase air draw. The extra wide volute, large diameter venturi and custom pinwheel create a dense foam inside the skimmer.


All Vertex Omega skimmers have a dedicated ozone injection port along with a responsive level adjustment. These protein skimmers are designed to be used inside a sump or cabinet filter. They are constructed of cast acrylic with hot welded seams and CVC machined PVC. The smooth wine glass shape of the skimmer body helps the bubbles to easily condense and move into the collection cup for easy removal.



Vertex really put some thought into the minor details of these protein skimmers. They have rust-proof titanium screws, vibration dampening rubber feet making for quiet operation and silicone airline tubing that is resistant to cracking and will stay limber. Vertex also created a swiveling drain fitting that makes removing the collection cup easy. Omega skimmers can be completely disassembled for access to the bubble plate and easy cleaning/maintenance.



The Marine Depot staff is very excited to be able to offer these powerful performing protein skimmers to our customers. If you are looking for an in-sump protein skimmer for your reef tank, the Vertex Omega Series should definitely be on your short list.

Until next time... take care and happy reefkeeping!
