Got this skimmer for my bday which replaced my red sea ckim 1800 and I couldn't be happier, saved ALLOT of room in my sump and it only need one pump to run!! Super quiet and it started skimming within 3 days of use love the octopus skimmer build can actually see whats going on inside the skimmer unlike my cskim 1800! WHISH ID GOTTEN SOONER!! octopus rocks.

I had my eye on this product for several months. I knew my current skimmer was not cutting it. Finally I pulled the trigger because BRS was offering 15% off all reef octopus products over Black Friday weekend. This skimmer arrived vet quickly and was a breeze to setup, install and running within 10 minutes. It only took 5 days to "break in" and it's skimming like a champ. The skimmate it's producing is a dark coffee/tea looking product. My tank has definitely benefited from this new addition! The skimmer is very quiet and I can not even hear it! My only negative was the discharge spout came with no attachment piece. So when I first set up the skimmer water was splashing everywhere in the sump. Had to by a $.50 PVC T fitting to allow the water to be diverted closer to the water line and as a result stopped the splashing. The skimmer is very solid and well constructed. The bubble blaster pump is awesome and creates a TON of bubbles!!
