At the heart of the Omega 200i, rests a modified custom Askol motor with an enlarged needle wheel accompanied by a powerful neodymium magnet. Each rotor has been hand-encased with epoxy to perfection. Proportionally sized neck and signature omega transition nicely complement the increased Air draw making for a balanced skimmer.
In addition, the base plate is milled to house a portion of the enlarged pump head, hence increasing the reaction-chamber volume.

While the Original Omega Concept has been widely accepted and appreciated by the most discerning hobbyist, Omega “i” Series was conceptualized to answer the needs of high bio-load systems with restricted sump volume. Omega i series (“i ” stands for “internal”) are pump in the body skimmers with emphasis on the fact that this feature should not reduce performance. From Titanium screws to the engraving on the lid, no expense was spared to achieve unparalleled quality and luxurious build.
Omega 200i Askol motors have been long recognized as the pinnacle of the high performance and reliability in aquatics hobby.
Unfortunately, due to the larger size of these motors, most skimmers with a pump inside the body design suffer from decreased reaction chamber volume. Vertex’s master CNC craftsmen have remedied this problem with a new custom bracket that allows mounting the pump on its side. This, in return, increases the volume of the reaction chamber significantly. Furthermore, the smooth signature transition improves migration of air/water mix, aa well as separation of organics from aquarium water.
