I've been running this skimmer on a 50 gallon reef tank for several months now and am very happy with it. Very good bang for the buck. It's quiet, uses very little energy, and consistently pulls out a lot of dark skimmate. I keep it in a section off my sump with constant water level and it rarely needs adjusting. Make sure to keep the two air inlet holes clean for consistent foam.

This is an awesome skimmer for the cost. The directions on how to use it were bad, but if you have owned a skimmer before, it isn't that hard to figure out. Very easy to service and set up.

Great packaging and very solid build. I cant believe how much bigger the pipe is than on other skimmers. Very easy to adjust and creates a large foam head after 6 hours.

Hands down the best skimmer for the space. It skims flawless. Thick brown all the time. I would definitely recommend. Made with quality parts. Easy to dump. Sensitive to water level changes.

Finally a reasonably priced skimmer that FITS in my sump under my 55 gal. It looks huge, and is big, but fits fine.
High quality, easy to assemble, the directions are awful, look at the pictures. Very very easy to clean and very quiet. Mine started skimming first day and has be pumping away ever since. The unit is sensitive to water level changes, an ATO really helps.

I have always had a hard time finding a skimmer to to fit in the stand under my 50 gallon reef tank since the height prohibited the high profile of all but the lower efficiency models . The 19 inch height and the high turnover of this model was the miracle that I have long waited for . The acrylic is heavy duty , there is nothing cheap about the skimmer but it's price .

I've had this skimmer running for 2 days on a 40b with 20L sump and it has amazed me already. It's already skimming, although, the skimmate is a pale green. I've never had a skimmer start performing so quickly. A major factor in purchasing this skimmer was the low power consumption. I replaced a skimmer that used a 45 watt pump and it was just enough wattage to cause larger temp swings than I want. The new octopus skimmer has, apparently, zero effect on the temp of the system. Very pleased with this!
