Stainless steel Lily Pipes by Dymax work beautifully in planted aquarium tanks. These aquarium lily pipes are constructed from surgical grade stainless steel providing a sleek appearance that is extremely durable and resistant to scratches and unsightly rust during maintenance. In addition to a solid build, these stainless steel lily pipes have the ability to withstand acidic and alkaline water parameters and will keep their shape through normal wear and tear. Unlike their glass lily pipe counterparts, stainless steel lily pipes are usually lesser prone to algae coverage. The inflow pipe is constructed with thin slits ensuring that aquarium water stays clean from large debris while keeping smaller freshwater fish and shrimp species safe from being vacuumed into an aquarium filter. Stainless steel lily pipes provide ample flow and circulation ensuring the aquarium tank is aerated properly. Proper circulation is important for planted tanks as it ensures that nutrients and CO2 gas are distributed evenly, resulting in lush aquatic plant growth, instead of algae manifestation.
This set of stainless steel lily pipes comes with a surface skimmer as well. Aquarium surface skimmers help to keep the water surface clear from bio-film, buildup, plant trimmings and any miscellaneous debris floating around. With this surface skimmer, your aquarium tank retains a clear surface without wasting any CO2 gas within the aquarium. An additional benefit of this Dymax Stainless Steel Lily Pipe with Surface Skimmer Set is that the inflow lily pipe also allows for adjustable flow rate. The user can adjust based on personal preference by turning to open or close the inflow slits.
Setup for these lily pipes is simple and includes both inflow and outflow pipes. Available in two different sizes for different external aquarium canister filters.
PRO TIP: Make sure to keep Surface Skimmer Attachment floating above water surface to ensure effective surface cleaning.
