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".

Missing parts By Taylor on 10/27/2017Taylor wouldn't recommend this product to a friendUpset to unbox and find out that there is no neck peice
Great Product! By James on 5/29/2017James would recommend this product to a friendI have this hooked up to the SRO 2000 and I love it. My Reefkeeper runs it for 15 seconds every four hours. I love the satisfaction of hearing it click on, and knowing that it is performing well. It is easy to clean which means you are more likely to do it.
Best money I have ever spent By Kenneth on 8/18/2015Kenneth would recommend this product to a friendI love this product! It is so quiet you don't know it is running. It keeps the skimmer working at it's peak performance. I wished I had bought this a long time ago. I have been running well over a year and have not had issues. I have it controlled by my Apex aquarium controller. I have got my moneys worth out of it.
Work good.. By Joe on 7/4/2015Joe would recommend this product to a friendWorks real good and quiet. You will need at least 5.00" clearance above your skimmer for this to fit . Also I used a $9.00 Brinks digital timer I got from Walmart, it can't handle this gadget and burned out on first use.. so spend the extra $$$ and get a better timer...
Perfect companion By Michael on 10/29/2014Michael would recommend this product to a friendThis neck cleaner is the perfect companion to my Octopus 250 skimmer - which I absolutely love. Worth the investment!

This will work with the Classic 110 INT skimmer. As for cleaning purposes this will often help to reduce the number of cleanings however the cup itself will often need to be cleaned still to keep up with the waste build up on the side. However it can greatly reduce the number of cleanings. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Easy answer. You will need toe ANC with 300 Lid
Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The ANC replacement lids, do not include any provisions for a float switch at this time. You would need to modify the lid to include a hole for a float switch if you wanted to add one one.
The 150 neck will work with the 150 elite. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The SKU: 207869 ANC with 200 Lid should be the proper fit for your skimmer. :-)
The ANC with 110 lid will work with the RO Classic 110SSS skimmer. If you have any other questions just let us know.
You use the existing collection cup but the lid is replaced.
