Reef Octopus Regal Skimmers now incorporate the new VarioS S pinwheel series of pumps. The new pumps are DC powered allowing for several advantages over traditional AC style pumps. The VarioS pumps can be fully controlled by a 3rd-party controller, or through the included control unit. With 5 different preset speeds and multiple feed modes, you can fine-tune Regal skimmers for superior performance on your particular system.
Space saving protein skimmers have the pumps encased within the body of the skimmer creating a much smaller footprint requirement. These types of skimmers are normally a slight bit taller than their counterpart, the increased height maximizes the amount of contact/dwell time and reaction chamber size allowing for greater filtration capabilities.

Great skimmer By Mac on 6/13/2017Mac would recommend this product to a friendI have the RO 200SSS skimmer in my Redsea 350 and its very very quiet. No air draw noise and no pump noise. Could not be happier. It replaced my RO 150 that was very loud.
Great Skimmer By Brad on 6/8/2017Brad would recommend this product to a friendI ordered this skimmer for my 180g and it has been great. Has a lot of nice features such as the overflow sensor and the controllable pump. Kind if pricey but worth the investment.
Very good skimmer By Dennis on 1/29/2017Dennis would recommend this product to a friendI bought this skimmer several months ago and I waited to see how it works before giving a review. I have really enjoyed this skimmer as it has performed as well or better than any others I have owned. I would definitely recommend this to others that are looking for a reliable and very quiet skimmer.
Don't waste your money on this skimmer By Steve on 11/9/2016Steve wouldn't recommend this product to a friendDespite its high price, the skimmer came with minimal information about its assembly and essentially no information on its use. Notable, nothing is provided on its actual operation. Nothing is included on the overfill sensor. In operation, it performs well below any skimmer I have ever owned. Maybe if there were actual instructions on its use it might have some actual worth, but despite several weeks of trying to adjust the settings and flow valve it has skimmed very little protein out of the water. Bottom line, it is a very expensive waste of money.
