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 ian on 3/21/2017ian would recommend this product to a friendI put this on a 210 gallon reef tank. This skimmer is super quiet. The silencer in the air intake does a great job. It is precision made and was put together in about 20 minutes and went right to work. It is absolutely huge be warned .Excellent skimmer worth the money. A skimmer can never be too big!!!
