Is here an additional pump required for this model or does it come with everything?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Mike,
All recirculating skimmers are going to need something to feed the skimmer itself. This is usually an extra 240gph feed pump that would be sold separately. It doesn't have to be anything fancy but the most popular choice is something like a sicce syncra pump.
Reef Octopus has combined the performance and efficiency of the Diablo protein skimmer with the controllability of a DC pump. This allows you to control the air and water flow rates to your protein skimmer thus allowing you to fine tune your desired collection.
