Performance & Control
At the heart of the skimmer is a Red Starfish DC controllable pump. The pump operates at a low, safe, voltage of 24V and is super silent. The controller allows you to dial in the performance of the pump to meet the exacting demands of your aquarium. The custom needlewheel helps to chop up the air into super-fine air bubbles and thoroughly mixes these fine air bubbles with dirty aquarium water.

Efficient Design
The air and water mixture then travels through Red Starfish’s proprietary diffusers. These unique diffusers help the water to be more linear and minimizes turbulence inside the skimmer for increased performance.

Fine air bubbles, carrying dirty protein, then travels up the smooth wine-shaped skimmer body and spills in the collection up. The crossed drainage lid design helps to guide the skimmate efficiently into the collection cup.

Compact / Space-Saving
The RS-N+ and RS-C+ skimmers both feature a pipeless outlet design. The foot-prints are drastically reduced; which allows hobbyists to easily fit Red Starfish skimmers into most sumps.
