Skimmers will always need to be adjusted to fit your system size and bio load. This is done with the stand pipe adjustment, air intake adjustment and overall height.
With the Skimmer having a footprint of 7.3"x9.5" and this will fit fine in the sump area of the emerald 26 which has dimensions of 8.25" x 10". Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
I see great reviews on this skimmer and just can't swing the cash for a Nyos or any $450 skimmer. Size wise I believe the RO 150 is capable is it really as good as the reviews and the bubbles as fine as I read about? Or is there a better choice up to $350 ish range
We have had great luck with the Classic 150sss. It is a very small footprint and does perform as well as the reviews say! Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
These have been recently redesigned and not had a chance to fully complete the testing. On these skimmers we recommend 200 light bio load, 150 medium, closer to 110 with heavy. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The pump is fairly easy to remove by removing the skimmer body and dismounting the pump. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The 150sss would be just a little too large for the sump. We recommend the 110SSS for easy removal and cleaning. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
This will work with 7-9" of water. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
This skimmer is oversized until the bio-load of the tank will catch up. Once tuned correctly this skimmer will not have any issues on a tank of your size.
Recommended sump water height: 7"-8"
BRS Recommended Tank Size:
Light Stocked - 160 Gallons
Medium Stocked - 110 Gallons
Heavily Stocked - 65 Gallons
The Reef Octopus Classic 150SSS is constructed of high-quality acrylic that can be completely disassembled for cleaning.

150 sss for sps 75g By johann garcia on 7/18/2016johann garcia wouldn't recommend this product to a friendA W S O M E E E E !!!! Works fine from the first instant in my sump....no break-in needed...dead silence, big collection cup, small footprint, .... for the price and quality...nothing to think about it!!! 100% high recommended.
Nice skimmer so far. By Sppf121 on 7/13/2016Sppf121 wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI looked at many different skimmers and do to sump size decided on this one. So far I am very happy with it. It's pretty quiet. Fits well in my Red Sea reefer 250 sump with room for a heater, apex probes, and the ability to easily change my filter socks. I would recomend this skimmer.
Great so far! By david s on 7/3/2016david s would recommend this product to a friendGreat skimmer very low footprint easy to tune and seals great without a locking mechanism. Already skimming loads more than my previous skimmer only a week in. Only complaint is the lid doesn't lock in so it becomes dislodged by the heavy amount of bubbles coming through the neck. Easily solved by sticking a full water bottle on top

Love it! By Jim on 3/31/2016Jim would recommend this product to a friendWas a bit skeptical with the low price, but super easy to set up, skims right away, and super quiet. Would buy again.
very nice By mark on 3/27/2016mark wouldn't recommend this product to a friendMy last skimmer was a reef octopus and was the best ive owned so when my bio load outgrew it the 150SSS was a good choice for me. Been up for a week now and was skimming the first day. Its a huge change over my 110int. Very pleased
Reef Octopus 150sss 6" By juschillin2 on 2/22/2016juschillin2 would recommend this product to a friendWell made product. Expect it to last for years. Easy set up. Seems to be a work hog! We've only been using for a few weeks. So far so good.
A lot of bang for your buck!! By MadCityReefer on 2/5/2016MadCityReefer would recommend this product to a friendWith limited space in my sump I only had 8"x11" section for a skimmer. At first I was really worried it would not fit based on another review because once you break the seal on the shrink wrap around the box you can no longer return it. I was BRS reassured me it was in fact the exact dimensions stated on CoralVue's website Footprint: 7.3″ x 9.45″ and rest assured it fit perfectly! Well made skimmer, skimmer cup does not have a drain but is plenty big enough to hold lots of skimmate. It was already producing a think foam in the first day. I've owned plenty of skimmers in the past and Reef Octopus Classic 150 Space Saver gives you a lot of bang for your buck!
Works GREAT! By Buster on 2/4/2016Buster would recommend this product to a friendI am the type of person that spends hours upon hours doing research before I make a purchase. No matter how large or small the item may be, I spend the time to ensure I get the best bang for my buck. With this protein skimmer, I felt that this product delivered and I was getting the most out of my purchase. It took a few days to break in, but once the break in period ended, this skimmer worked like a charm! It pulls great skimmate out of the water and the pump is quiet. My only gripe would be is I can slightly hear a gurgle from the air intake. It’s not too bad, but maybe it’s just the way I set it up.
