This product works great. I ordered it for my 75 gallon tank and it works flawless with a 20 gallon refugium. Impressive craftmanship and looks and work perfect. Thanks BRS.

This skimmer is well made and easy to setup. I had this skimmer setup and running in about a half an hour. I started seeing results almost right away. Heavy duty construction materials give me confidents that I'll have this skimmer for a long time.

First off, shipping was incredibly fast. Ordered on Tuesday and at my door Thursday. Easy assembly. Small foot print. Sturdy/ well made skimmer. Running in about 6" of water and it's already pulling skim mate after 3 hours. Very quiet except output is a little out of the water but no big deal. Very glad I bought this skimmer and outstanding quality for the price.

All I can say is, WOW. I have had this skimmer for a couple weeks now and it really shows. This thing has removed so much waste, excess food, and other particles it's almost unbelievable.

I have a 50G tank and 20G sump, and this skimmer started removing waste within days. It was easy to adjust, and very quick to assemble. This is a great bargain and works great.
Great Skimmer! By Michael on 7/19/13

Bought this skimmer about two months ago. Had to build a small eggcrate shelf for it to stand on because my water level in my sump is 8". Raised it up 2.5" putting it about 5.5" under water, skims much better now. I do tend to have to adjust it, seems like it either skims nothing or really wet. The sweet spot is really hard to hit for me. I'd definitely recommend one though, very quiet. Mine is on a 40g with a 20g sump.
Terrific skimmer By Chris on 7/15/13

I bought this recently from BRS and could not be happier. Prior to this I was using a Red Sea Berlin Airlift 90 skimmer (with the airstone). It was a pretty good skimmer but compared to this Reef Octopus, the Red Sea one is like taking a coffee filter and skimming it through the water.
It take a little while to "break in" like all skimmers do but once it does the control is wonderful and it's very quiet and compact; perfect for those of us will smaller fuge/sumps.
Shipping and packaging from BRS was, as always, terrific!
Fantastic skimmer you will be quite happy with.

JUST GOT THIS BAD BOY SKIMMER TODAY, TOOK ME LESS THAN 10 MINUTES TO PUT IT TOGETHER AND SET IT UP IN MY SUMP. VERY NICE FEEL TO THE SKIMMER, DOESN'T FEEL FLIMSY LIKE THOSE OTHER SKIMMERS. I'M A VERY PICKY WHEN IT COMES TO MY REEF ( AREN'T WE ALL ) AND I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS SKIMMER IN A HEARTBEAT. STOP THINKING ABOUT THIS PRODUCT AND HIT "THE ADD TO CART"
High Performance By Chris on 6/6/13

This is a well designed and high quality skimmer. Within hours of turning it on, it was pulling dark skimmate out of the water. The collection cup is large enough, and also has an outlet for an included drain line so it can flow into a larger container. Before placing it on my sump I modded the outflow pipe to output under the water to eliminate noise. It cost about $6 in PVC parts, but CoralVue sells a preassembled piece for $30.
Good Product By Blennymower on 5/27/13

I've only had the skimmer for a couple of days. However, I've owned several octopus skimmers and this one has the same quality built into it. BRS should should show pictures with the new pump it comes with, although they tell you in the descriptions. The skimmer head is a good fit but wiggles a bit. Overall it's a skimmer I'm happy to have.

Very impressed with this product! It arrived very fast!! I haven't set it up yet but by the looks of the impressive craftsmanship it will be the best skimmer I've purchased to date. I plan on buying another soon for another system. Thanks BRS!!
