The 110 is a great option and will handle a very heavy bioload on a 40 gallon. Our return policy is new and unopened boxes. If the items have been opened unfortunately all warranty and support will be through Coralvue directly. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
To avoid injury, you should research and take every precaution to properly inject and vent Ozone.
For skimmers it is typically recommended for 10x your system volume. As low as 5x can still work will and will give slightly more contact time for any elements. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The skimmer is pre built from the body down, only the stand pipe and the collection cup. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.
Does it require a water pump? How many GPM on the water pump?
Have a great day!

Great Skimmer! By BearTrap26 on 8/1/2017BearTrap26 would recommend this product to a friendI have a 54 Gallon Bowfront reef tank. I had it for 7 months and never had a skimmer and had no issues. I had been adding fish and corals and realized eventually everything would grow and start putting more nitrates in and might eventually pose a major problem. This set up was perfect for my sump since there is very little room. After getting it dialed in and after a couple of break in days it began to produce a good amount of skim mate. Great product, I highly recommend it!
Super easy to setup: Video out of date and directions are lacking By Timothy on 5/10/2017Timothy would recommend this product to a friendSo I got the Octopus 110sss to fit in my Trigger Emerald 26 sump. Fits PERFECTLY! I had to assemble the red tube in the sump due to the tank stand being low, but no problems getting the cup off.
Directions are poor, and so I went to Youtube to watch the video. The video is different then the one I was sent. Evidently its been upgraded, but the video has not.
However, its super easy to install, and the video is good enough.
Started skimming right away. Most say it takes 3 or 4 weeks to really dial in, so more later!
Lovin' it so far. By Joshua on 5/8/2017Joshua would recommend this product to a friendI spent the extra money for the SSS and i'm glad i did. I have limited space in my sump and it has worked perfectly so far. Extremely quiet and has cleaned my tank so well. Looking forward to see what it can really do once my tank is fully stocked.
Reef Octopus 110 By WayneN on 3/29/2017WayneN would recommend this product to a friendExcellent skimmer, extremely quiet and very compact.
impressed By it just works on 3/11/2017it just works would recommend this product to a friendThis skimmer isn't finicky or fancy, it doesn't have a special break in procedure. It just works well and very fast. Noise level is average and cannot be heard unless you open your cabinet and get close to it. I have zero complaints and will use Reef Octopus more often.
Nice skimmer By gary on 2/7/2017gary would recommend this product to a friendThis thing is dead quiet and works very well. I'm very happy with it. It's a little hard to put together with the provided instuctions. And the air line does not connect to anything, it just sits in the tube.
Fantastic skimmer! By Marc on 12/2/2016Marc would recommend this product to a friendThis skimmer is essentially dead quiet and puts out great skimmate. I wanted to replace my Seaside CS5.5 because it frequently vibrated sporadically. The build quality is excellent too.
Great skimmer By Luis on 7/11/2016Luis would recommend this product to a friendSkimmer is pulling some good skimmate but I feel that I could be dialing it in better but haven't hit that sweet spot just yet
settings By slone64 on 7/10/2016slone64 would recommend this product to a friendi wish it was better explained about getting it dialed in for the amount of bubbles and the pushing up through the tube. seems to work best at the deeper end of 8". working well otherwise.
Awesome skimmer, especially for the price! By DeepBlue45 on 6/30/2016DeepBlue45 would recommend this product to a friendCouldn't be happier with this skimmer. I was concerned because I changed my sump design so was going from a more expensive external recirculating skimmer to this in-sump model. Basically I had it assembled and in the sump in about 15 min and it was pulling out dark thick skimmate with minimal adjustments required. It's also dead quiet. Maybe I got lucky and it works well with my set-up but very impressed.
New Set up By Btonben on 2/18/2016Btonben would recommend this product to a friendInstalled this skimmer on my 110 gallon soon to be reef tank. It's pulling out a lot of junk. Well worth the price.
Wish I had this years ago By Dmolavi on 1/18/2016Dmolavi would recommend this product to a friendTLDR: If you're up in the air for a compact, high performance skimmer, look no further. BUY THIS ONE!!!
Granted, my upgraded tank is only a couple months old, but after the first day it was pulling lots of gunk from the tank. It has a nice compact footprint, and is absolutely, dead silent. I had to open the cabinet a few times the first day I had it to make sure it was still running. The instructions are kinda lousy, but if you google, you'll find a good video on YouTube that shows how to put it together. It took about 10 minutes, tops.
With the one I got, the silencer had two small tubes on it, instead of one large one. You don't have to cover these tubes, and the manufacturer recommends you don't in a post on their forum.
