If you find yourself needing a protein skimmer but don't have a bunch of money to spend you might consider building your own. Believe me when I tell you that to make one is not as difficult as you might imagine. I am really not that mechanical and I did it, so can you!

I made two different models: one that at its widest point was four inches in diameter, and the other was three inches in diameter. Both are approximately 24 inches tall and made to hang on the side of a fifty-five gallon tank.

The parts you will need are readily available from any of the large home improvement stores. The only exceptions to this are the clear PVC (or clear acrylic) pipe and the tee eliminators
The parts you will need are shown in the Parts List.

Now that you have acquired all of your parts, you are ready to assemble your skimmer. I will describe how to assemble a four-inch diameter protein skimmer, with the steps to the three-inch diameter skimmer being the same. I also have included a drawing that hopefully will help with your assembly.

The first step is to cut your 4" pipe 12" long. (You can make this piece longer or shorter depending on the height of your tank.) Put the 4" cap on the bottom and the 3" to 4" adapter on the top.

Next cut your 3" clear pipe 8" long. Put the 1-1/2" to 3" adapter on the 3" pipe. Add this to what you have already put together. Slip the 1/2" to 1-1/2" bushing into the 1-1/2" to 3" adapter top. Slip the 1/2" nipple to the top of that adapter. Add a length of hose to the nipple that you can run to a container and you are halfway done!

Now it is time to connect the pump. Drill a hole just below the 3" to 4" adapter with a hole saw. These are cheap to buy if you don't already own one. A 13/16" hole is the size you need for a 3/4" tee eliminator and a 1-1/2" hole for a 1" tee eliminator, according to Aquatic Eco-Systems. (I would go with the next size smaller to get a good snug fit.) Slip the tee eliminator into the hole you just drilled. Wrap some Teflon tape onto a street elbow and thread it in.

Cut a piece of 1" pipe to go from the street elbow to the top of the 3" to 4" adapter. Add a 1" elbow facing towards the aquarium, add a length of pipe equal to the width of your aquarium trim and put your 1" threaded elbow on the end of it. Add your 1" to 1/4" nipple, a length of hose to connect your pump. Insert a length of air line into the suction side of your pump (I use a disposable Lee's airstone adapter) and you are almost done.

Last but not least it is time to finish with the water return from your skimmer.

Drill another hole near the bottom of the 4" pipe just above the 4" cap. Add your tee eliminator and thread in your street elbow. Cut a length of pipe to go from the street elbow to the top of the 3" to 4" adapter. Add a 1" elbow facing towards the aquarium. This will determine the lowest water level in the skimmer. Cut a length of pipe equal to the width of your aquarium trim and put a 1" elbow on. Add a short piece of pipe and the cap. I drilled three 5/8" holes through the cap and the pipe to act as a cheap valve. (Turn the cap to close holes.) When you start up your skimmer for the first time, keep the cap hole fully open, then slowly turn the cap to close the holes and adjust the water level. Now the assembly is complete.

All that is left to do is glue all the joints and allow them to dry. Don't glue the cap! I also don't glue the 3" to 1-1/2" adapter to make cleaning the unit easier. Remember, the steps for a 3" skimmer are the same, just use the smaller size pipes!

I hope your project was a success and you had fun!

Thank's...

Akan lebih baik kalau diterjemahkan kedalam bahasa Indonesia, tapi setelah meminta ijin ke penulisnya, dan kalau diijinkan oleh penulisnya bisa dipasang di o-fish.com

Hello Bung Web...

Kalo hrs minta ijin ke yg buat sulit kali ya..krn dia orang Amrik.
Ini saya juga dapat dari majalah Aquarium. Karena itu saya cantumkan nama pembuatnya...berarti saya tidak menyalahi hak dia donk, dan saya rasa selama kita tetap mencantumkan nama penulis dan sumber artikel nga masalah tuch, nga bakal kena tuntun karena itu memang ide original si penulis.
Tapi apakah Bung Web sudah baca ? dan apakah sistem kerja alat itu benar ? maklum saya belum pernah melihat apalagi mempergunakannya. Dan kalo memang mau dimuat di O-Fish nanti saya coba translate.
Lagipula ini hanya sekedar bagi informasi aja ke semua member... :wink:

Kalau artikel itu dari majalah, berarti copyrightnya dimiliki oleh si penerbit,
mungkin bisa dibaca aturan copyright majalah tersebut. Terkadang disebut bahwa kita tidak boleh mengambil sebagian, atau seluruhnya, atau diterjemahkan artikel yang dimuat tersebut, kecuali seijin ybs.
Kalau anda memiliki kontak personnya saya coba bantu memintakan ijinnya. Sebagai catatan, tidak sedikit yang meminta ijin mengambil bagian dari o-fish.com oleh hobiis/asosiasi di LN, terutama dari Itali, Rusia, Spanyol, Norwegia dan negara lainnya.

Pak Wahyu,

Mohon tanya, apakah protein skimmer juga digunakan untuk aquarium air tawar? untuk aqua ikan koki boleh pak?

Thanks

Bung Hady,
penggunaan protein skimmer "biasa" di air tawar tidak terlalu efektif, karena air tawar sulit membentuk busa yang diperlukan. Meskipun demikian ada protein skimmer yang telah dirancang khusus untuk air tawar.

Bung Bluemarch,
kita sudah dapat ijin untuk menterjemahkan dan memuatnya di o-fish, jadi kalau anda bersedia dan mempunyai waktu untuk menterjemahkannya akan sangat saya hargai :wink: :wink: .

Oke.... akan coba translate, sekalian coba membuatnya.
Sebenarnya banyak DIY untuk protein skimmer ini tp saya blm sempat membandingkan.

Pak Wahyu,

Mohon maaf sebelumnya, karena pertanyaannya kurang relevan dengan subject-nya bung blue march.
Protein skimmer khusus untuk air tawar apakah umum dijual di toko accessories aquarium?
