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.

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

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.

Hi everyone! I purchased this Skimmer knowing the Brand name as a Amazing performing product 1st off, and second, my Mother has the HOB on her Fowlr and have seen what it can do! This Skimmer has been running on my 90g Mixed Reef Aquarium for......close to 28 hours now and is ( I didn't even believe it would ) already producing more skimmate than my previous one! I have been told by many it can take from 1-4 weeks to even get it dialed in and skimming. My 2 eyes don't lie, and have seen already (not even 3 days yet) seen what this Skimmer is capable of + so much more! A HUGE THUMBS UP TO REEF OCTOPUS, AND BRS! : )
So Far So Good , & BIG! By Daniel on 9/13/11

First off i wanna say , i've only owned my skimmer for about 2 weeks. And i bought this for my 75 gallon reef tank. Here's what i know about it now. Its seems to be made well. Easy to install ( as long as you have a big enough sump). With that said, In my opinion your sump needs to be about 12" wide, With a water height of At least 6". To me this thing is huge. Way bigger than i thought. Keep in mind i dont work for reef octopus , so if your any where close to those numbers check with them. Skims well after one day of warming up. Overall great product, also BRS is awesome to! Keep those demo videos coming , how great would it be to have a video for every single product on the site!
