This is an excellent quality skimmer at a great price. It's easy to adjust and was pulling nice skimmate within a day. Highly recommended.

The single best peice of equipment I have. I am so happy with it. Every other item I have bought that's mechanical for my reef I find flaws in this however is not true it's silent, works great, and best of all well worth the $$$

I have this on my 75 gallon. It does an amazing job of producing anything from a wet skim to thick gunk depending what my needs are at the moment!

Recently purchased this skimmer here at BRS, amaizing service, quick shipping, and an extreme overuse of packing peanuts! They really care about the product getting from them to you! This skimmer is exactly what I wanted with my 75g dt and 30g sump, started producing bubbles in very short order! great product hands down.
Superb performance By Deborah on 3/15/12

We have both this skimmer and one size down, and for the little bit more money for this skimmer you get a lot more performance, and you dont need an external pump so its practically cheaper after the pump is added into the equation. this is larger than the 4in model, and it surely performs far better! highly recommended.

This skimmer performs well for the price. some 'tinkering' is necessary with water level depending upon your skimming preferences, but i found the gate valve easy to adjust and the recommending operating water levels to be ideal for my sump. I use it on a 90 gallon mixed reef with 30 gallon sump. Lot's of gunk!

This skimmer is more than I hoped for. Started skimming the first week and runs like a champ.

This skimmer supplements an SWC 160 cone, that replaced a bubble magus. Running side by side, the SWC (with the crappy atman 2500) tends to create many more fine bubbles than the Octopus, but oddly enough, the Octopus pulls more gunk. So I have them set up to fill the collection cups more or less equally, and the skimmate from the SWC is much thinner and clearer than the gunk from the Octo. This is only one week in, and nowhere near the 3-4 week 'breakin period' being over. So all in all, a fantastic skimmer for the price!!

Plug and play is a great feature of this skimmer. Once it breaks in it skims hard. Sucking out way more waste than my old one. Great product

Reef Octopus makes the best skimmer for your money hands down.

For the money, this big guy is hard to beat.
Mine came with my tank used (supposedly ~1yr old) but it runs like a champ.
Easy to adjust, but as another reviewer said "set it & forget it". Cup is easily removed for cleaning.
Well built all around unit. Would buy an identical unit if mine died today.
