Decent Skimmer By Jason on 1/7/2013

I've been running this skimmer for about 8 months now and for the most part, it's been a very solid skimmer, granted the only one I've ever had experience with. It's very easy to clean out, with the exception of the inside. It is one solid piece of acrylic with only a small opening in the neck. Soaking in vinegar for a could days pretty much does the trick, but would be nice if there was easier access to scrub with a brush.

I recently upgraded to 93 cube from a 29 Bio Cube so this is my first skimmer. It was really easy to set up and started pulling out this nasty looking blackish brown stuff with in hours. Hard to imagine i ran a tank for 2 yrs with out a skimmer. Oh and its silent can't tell that its on.

I bought this for a 60g mixed reef with a 20 gallon sump. It pulls some nasty gunk out. I think it is just slightly underpowered for 80 total gallons so I may have to trade up soon.

Great skimmer. Small foot print so it fits I'm my sump nicely. Very quite and easy to adjust. For the price you simply will not find a better deal.

I bought this skimmer for a 40 gallon breeder, I had it up and running within five minutes and it started producing great skimmate right away. It has been running in my sump for a few weeks with no problems, will buy another for my next tank.

Purchase this for my 40G breeder SPS dominated reef, and was skimming from the start. Easy to operate and assemble, and very well built.

Just got my skimmer up and running a few days ago and it is already pulling a good skimmate. It was easy to set up. Can't wait for it to be broken in.

I have a 30 gal with 15 gal sump. This skimmer is a great value and the smaller size fits into smaller sumps. It has outperformed my other skimmers on similar sized tanks. Buy it.
Pretty good skimmer By Manny on 6/6/2012
Manny would recommend this product to a friend
This is my first true skimmer and it seems to be working pretty well. When I clean the receptacle I get nasty stuff out, which probably means it's doing its job. The check valve is easy to adjust after it has been broken in. Before that it's pretty tough. I would recommend.

I've gone through two protein skimmers before this one in the last year, and this one was skimming better than both others combined in the first week!

Best Skimmer Value By Andrew on 3/29/2012
Andrew would recommend this product to a friend
I just bought one of these and it works better than I thought. I researched skimmers for a few weeks and read great reviews. I was told it takes 3-4 weeks to dial in, but it produced dark foam within minutes. I called Coral Vue and asked a few questions and they where great. Great customer service and product. Also takes about 2-3 minutes to have up and running out of the box and price is very good. This will out perform skimmers that are double to tripple its price. This product is nothing but good and I have been in the hobby for 20 years.

You will be hard pressed to find a better skimmer for the money. Easy to adjust, very compact footprint, and good seals at vital areas. The only drawback I see is cleaning the bottom of the skimmer. The top to middle is easy. For the cost I have no complaint.

Purchased my Reef Octopus 4 (NWB 110) used. It works great on my 75 gallon with a 25 gallon sump. Pulls out lots of dark liquid with a light bioload in the tank. Great Skimmer.

I purchased this skimmer a few months back for my 20 gallon tank with 10 gallon sump. I originally thought it was going to be massive overkill, but after it broke in, this skimmer was pulling out gunk like crazy with no pause! It's definitely a great skimmer, and one of the best in it's price range. The only issue that I encountered was cleaning the skimmer, as the body is one solid piece. This makes it difficult to clean the bubble plate and below. But, that's nothing a good vinegar bath cant fix! All in all, I highly recommend this skimmer.

Skims like a beast until the pump breaks, has a 1 year warranty but since its been more than 30 Days Octopus says I have to ship them the pump at my own cost. Awesome skimmer, horrible pump, horrible customer service.

been using this skimmer in my system for about 4 months now and I must say I'm impressed. It collects a ton of gunk and was very easy to get set up. I do wish it had a bigger collection cup though.

My first skimmer, but its built very well. very sturdy construction. It took about three days for it to break in, and I don't think that it's very hard to tune. I don't have a heavy bioload, but its easer to tune then the hot water in my shower. Its also quieter then I was expecting, thats a plus. I recommend this skimmer over all others I have seen for its size.
