    CPR has started shipping their new Aero Force hang on skimmer. Essentially a CPR bak pak spin off, the Aero Force utilizes a Hydor Ario pump for micro bubble production. The Hydor Ario pump is actually marketed for freshwater and can even be purchased with LED lights! However the application for nano skimmers is there, in fact if you were to search some ancient skimmer discussion board threads you’ll even find posts from myself, discussing its application.

    I personally tried an Ario  on a CPR bak pak, but results were still mediocre at best for my system. The additional air intake was too much for the tiny funnel collection cup.  That said this may be a good choice for the sub-30g nano range. The small Hydor pico feed pump takes up little space in the aquarium and overall the Ario is relatively quiet.
