    Where is the •Recommended sump water depth: 5.75 - 6" measured from. My sump water level is 11'' deep. The skimmer has a 5'' base. I'm at 6'' if it's measured from the bottom of the skimmer housing. If you could clear this up it would be most helpful.

    Question by: Harry on Mar 30, 2014 8:32:00 AM
    Hi Harry,
    The water depth would be how deep the water in the sump is, so from the bottom of the sump to where the top of the water is. It is always assumed that the skimmer is sitting on the bottom. So it is recommended to place this skimmer in 6" of water. If you have a chamber that is too deep you could build a skimmer platform that would keep the bottom of your skimmer at 6" from the water surface to basically recreate a sump that is only 6" deep.

WHISH ID GOTTEN SOONER!! octopus rocks.
    • Excellent product By Daveya on 12/16/2013

      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!!
