Reef Octopus Elite Protein Skimmers feature a premium cast acrylic body along with the reliable VarioS DC pumps. Compared to other skimmers in the same category, the Elite series of skimmers are much more efficient and quieter. The wine glass shape body allows bubbles to smoothly transfer up into the collection cup, where many other skimmers use two-piece body designs that create sharp edges and breaks bubbles. Every Elite skimmer comes with an integrated skimmer cup overflow float switch that directly connects to the VarioS pump controller and will shut the skimmer down when the cup is full, eliminating messy and smelly overflows.
Controlling the flow through the Elite series from Reef Octopus is done by the wedge pipe, which can be twisted easily to adjust the water level inside of the skimmer. The other method of tuning is the VarioS pump, which can be adjusted through 5 different speeds which give different air to water ratios. Since not every reef tank is made the same, having multiple methods to control the flow and dwell time can lead to a much more efficient protein skimmer.

Great Skimmer By Marco on 6/10/2019Marco would recommend this product to a friendI have the elite 200 into skimmer on my Red Sea 625XXL and it’s is a beast!! Easy to setup and easy to adjust.
Works Amazing By Jeremiah on 3/5/2019Jeremiah would recommend this product to a friendThis Skimmer is working amazing for me. It’s been holding a very steady skim not much has effected where the skim is at. Other skimmers I’ve had where always very sensitive and hard to adjust. Super quite can’t even hear it running. Love the auto shut off float. The last two skimmers I’ve owned would make a mess All over the sump if I wasn’t diligent on checking it often. This skimmer just seems to be able to set and forget. Low maintenance!
Well worth the price! By Channing on 1/27/2019Channing would recommend this product to a friendUnfortunately BRS didn't carry this skimmer 6 months ago (I cheated on you sorry lol.) To the point this skimmer is a beast I have it on my 220 gallon tank 300 gallon total system. Works well past my expectations I did buy Reed octopus auto cleaner for BRS and you can't beat this combo.
What is the size of the air inlet tubing for co2 scubber application?
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
