This is the best skimmer I have ever owned and I have owned a couple of them. This thing was pulling brown/green skim in just hours and I never have to adjust the settings since about a week after I installed it. Its easy to clean and I use this on all my customers tanks and it hasnt let me down yet. Get one today!

I have been running mine for 3 months now. It started pulling gunk in the first day and has not stopped. Once it "broke it" it was in full swing. I am using bio-pellets and have the output from the reactor going right next to the skimmer, Man it pulls the bio output right out of the system. Very nice skimmer. I have a 120gallon with a 40 gallon sump and have not issues, thanks
Excellent skimmer By Heathd on 12/12/10

This is a great skimmer, and it has a huge "bang for the buck" factor. My previous skimmer was an aqua remora c that had no ability to fine tune, put microbubbles into my display, and always had a very watery skimmate.
The reef octopus has a very short break in period, easy assembly, and excellent build qaulity. The adjusting of the skimmer is easy, but very fine. There seems to be a fine point between wet and dry skimate, and getting yours locked in might be a real bear. My water clarity and qaulity has improved greatly with this skimmer, and I am very happy I made the purchase.
