The IceCap K2 160 is a remarkably compact skimmer that offers a new level of refined filtration for marine aquariums ranging from 120 to 200 gallons. All aspects of the skimmer were implemented to surpass many challenges other skimmer on the market miss out on. 

Compact & Built to Last

Master crafted from robust PVC and high quality acrylic. All components are marine safe and refined in every aspect to provide the latest enhancements in foam fractionation and the highest in quality.

The elegant “Beer Bottle” curve of the skimmer body naturally stabilizes the air and water mix as they transition upward within the reaction chamber. An impressively compact footprint makes it the ideal candidate for tight sump applications. Every aspect of the skimmer disassembles completely for easy service.

Quiet Performance & Control

At the Core of the IceCap K2, you will find the always reliable and Italian made Sicce skimmer pump with a proven track record for being highly durable and packing a ton efficient performance. 

The pipeless output offers fine-tuning and trouble free underwater outflow plus quiet operation. The wedge pipe commonly used on other skimmer to channel outgoing water often causes performance inconsistency and additional sound. Our pipeless design not only saves on space but also allows the outgoing water to exit on the side of the skimmer and below the water surface providing splash-free circulation in the sump.

Located much lower in the reaction chamber, the unique bubble dispersing chamber offers a multi stage diffusion of water, additional contact time for enhanced foam stability.

I have been using this skimmer for the last six month's. I'm very happy with it. The skimmer is very quiet, I have to open the cabinet door to hear it running, it's supper quiet. In my opinion the skimmer is very well built. I would recommend this skimmer to everyone. The skimmate is always dark. This skimmer has been trouble free from the beginning. The only problem I had with the skimmer is that it did not come with a assembly manual. However there are some good videos on line which shows how to put it together. To sum it up, if I were to put together another tank in the future. It will definitely have an Ice cap skimmer in the sump.
