Reef Octopus BH2000
Hang-on-the-Back Protein Skimmer

SKU: 204059


  • awesome skimmer By the shack on 3/22/14

    This is the best HOB skimmer on the market. After much research and alot of anticipation I finally took the plunge. Boy was it worth it I have a 75 gallon sps tank that I ran skimmerless for a year I had immeasurable nitrates on a red sea nitrate pro colorimetric test kit with zero algae anywhere in the tank. Within one day this skimmer was pulling stuff out and within three days I got 1/4 collection cup full. After a week the skimmate was a nice dark green color and all of my fish and sps displayed even more vibrant color with polyp expansion that was unparalled before. If you arent running a sump this is the best purchase you can make even if you have zero nitrates like I did. The instructions were lacking but if you have a little common sense it should be no problem to figure out how to put it together.
  • Best HOB skimmer i have ever used By Ezra on 1/27/14

    I would have to say that if you are looking for a HOB protein skimmer this is the one you should look at. After the initial break in period this skimmer is pulling dark skimmate from my tank, and putting a lot less micro bubbles in my tank compared to my old HOB skimmer. I would have to say that the one downfall is the instruction that come with this skimmer are not that well worded or descriptive. As performance goes though i would have to say this skimmer is awesome.
  • Great Skimmer for the price! By Richard on 1/3/14

    Got the skimmer yesterday and set it up. Within 2 hours it had pulledenough DARK brown skimmate to fill 1/4 of the collection cup. A little on the loud side but worth the trade off
  • Great product for the money By rvickery2 on 12/14/13

    The 2000 is built solid and pretty quite for the job it is doing. I don't run a sump so the HOB was the only option. After doing research most recommended the Reef Octopus. No regrets
  • Great By stoney on 11/21/13

    I have the. 2000 and the 1000 both work fantastic
  • What!!! By Jasso on 10/11/13

    For those of you who can't figure things out, Slap Yourself.. Anyway, I did research on skimmers products and Reef Octopus came through as what many said on youtube... But I do agree that the instructions are naked. Other than that it's doing what others said it does and it's performing like a work horse. 55g Tank and water is Crystal!!
  • Great! By Josh on 10/7/13

    I put off buying this and then my tank started having algae blooms. I bought this and within a week nitrates were back under control!!! Don't wait! Only problems is micro bubbles. Not a lot but they're there.
  • love it! By brian on 9/5/13

    This thing is a beast. Very well made. Instructions sucked but it came mostly assembled anyway. In just a few hours I had already collected skimmate. This is on a 75 gallon breeder. Water clarity has visibly improved.
  • First impressions By Daniel on 7/25/13

    This is my first reef tank and therefore my first skimmer. First impressions are of a big square jewel. After playing around and adjusting things for a few days, it is currently bubbling away happily pulling out carmel colored goo from my seemingly clear tank water. Few pieces of advice, don't set the box too far down towards the water level. It will overflow rather quickly [don't ask]. It has a ring engraved inside the neck which seems to be your proper adjustment range. Also the O-rings are not spares, you need them.....[again don't ask] Adjust the foam pads on the water level to prevent most micro-bubbles. Might someday have to suck it up and get a big sexy bottle shaped goo skimmer, but for now this is more than sufficient for a beginner.. I like it....
  • Good unit By parroki on 7/11/13

    You do need to tape the plumb joints and put a clamp on the air line at the pump. I would buy this again. I am in hour 27 and it is beginning to skim. Directions could be better.
