    Austrian equipment outfit, ATB is out with their newest skimmer model: the ATB Elegance 200 Pro. At 550mm (21.6″) tall and a footprint of just 280 x 230mm (11″ x 9″) this skimmer is aimed at aquarists who require a large skimmer, but not the associated footprint.

    By placing the ATB Airstar Pro pump inside the skimmer body, the Elegance 200 Pro can operate as a reduced footprint skimmer in sump, or external. ATB has intelligently placed a union on the pump’s input which makes plumbing the 200 Pro externally much easier.

    To clarify, the standard in sump model is the ATB Elegance 200. The Pro version places the Airstar pump internally for a much more compact design.

    The ATB Elegance Pro is tuned to draw 1,800lph of air, while moving 2,200 lph of water (580 gph) at just 37w of electric consumption. That’s over 8 parts air injected into the conical skimmer for every 10 parts water filtered through. The current estimated price is €620 or ~ $860 USD.
