Reef Octopus

Automatic Skimmer Cleaner (ANC) with 250 Lid (OPEN BOX)

In stock

- +

Automatically clean the collection cup of your Reef Octopus protein skimmer to keep it running at peak performance. Automatic Neck Cleaners (ANC) are designed to fit Reef Octopus skimmers. Consistently cleaning the neck of your protein skimmer will reduce the build-up of bio-organics. This build-up causes the foam to stick to the sides and can restrict the collection of skimmate in the skimmer's collection cup. ANC units will increase the height of your skimmer by approximately 4.75".
