This is the original and world famous media basket for the RSM. Strong construction combined with a perfect fit allows you to organize and increase your filtration. Simple to use, just drop into the tank under the intake skimmer grate. Includes strong top bracing to help support skimmer if attached. **Will only work if the stock skimmer is removed.  Notice top bullet, does not fit in RSM250.

It is recommended that you place filter floss on the top shelf. Media of your choice on the second and third. inTank uses Purigen and Chemi Pure Elite on their baskets.

Mounting: You can mount the Tunze 9001 directly to the basket with the supplied magnets that are included with the protein skimmer. This install requires no further modification to any product and the top bracing will support the weight and stress of the Tunze. For a more advanced user, the skimmer can be mounted to the rear of the tank using the supplied magnets on the 9001.  inTank only recommends this installation to a customer with some Do-It-Yourself skills. Please read all instructions prior to use and installation.
