You mean the difference between a protein skimmer and a surface skimmer?
Surface skimmer is just like it sounds. It skims the surface of the water. Just like in a swimming pool. Get debris etc. that floats on the surface of the water. A protein skimmer uses foam/ air bubbles to remove proteins from the water.
