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!

I purchesd this as my first skimmer to go in my sump. It is amazing. Supper quiet and it takes out a very thick dark green slime out of my tank. It fits in my sump which is very short. Overall this Is a very good product for a very low price.
Best skimmer so far By Caribreef on 12/12/2013

Solid packaging , great build quality, nothing feels flimsy. Assembly was straight forward, and was amazed to see it pull medium brown skimate within 45mins, fastest break in I've ever had.
Reasons I choose this unit:
I live in a temperate climate with no chiller and heat is a big deal for me, 9watts is really efficent, no dumping of latent heat needlessly into the tank.
Small footprint was nice with my present sump,
