Reef Octopus Regal Skimmers now incorporate the new VarioS S pinwheel series of pumps. The new pumps are DC powered allowing for several advantages over traditional AC style pumps. The VarioS pumps can be fully controlled by a 3rd-party controller, or through the included control unit. With 5 different preset speeds and multiple feed modes, you can fine-tune Regal skimmers for superior performance on your particular system.
Space saving protein skimmers have the pumps encased within the body of the skimmer creating a much smaller footprint requirement. These types of skimmers are normally a slight bit taller than their counterpart, the increased height maximizes the amount of contact/dwell time and reaction chamber size allowing for greater filtration capabilities.

Great Skimmer! By Chris on 11/25/2019Chris would recommend this product to a friendPulls out black funk consistently day in day out. Also completely silent! Awesome Octo build quality all around! Super happy with it so far!
Don't Hesitate By shaun on 5/14/2019shaun would recommend this product to a friendAfter many sleepless nights and endless you tube and forum threads, I'm so glad I chose this skimmer. It was either spend $750 dollars on the elite or go with regal version. Sure glad I went regal, saved money. This skimmer is nearly dead silent, it the exact same DC pump you get in the elite version, the only real difference is the return nozzle, skimmer cup removal and I believe the constructability of the body. If you want to save some coin but have the heat of an elite don't hesitate on this Reef Octopus Regal.
Awesome skimmer By Bing on 7/13/2017Bing would recommend this product to a friendI've had this running for 2 months now on a 100g system SPS system with about 10 fishes. Excellent quality components. The Varios pump is nice and very quiet. I have the pump controller set to 3 with the air silencer wide open. The sump water level is at 8 inches. I get consistent foam and nice dark skimmate. I would rate this for up to 120g heavily stocked tank. I had an Aquamaxx on the tank that I thought was really good but this Regal skimmer is on another level.
About time! By Elisabeth on 7/13/2017Elisabeth would recommend this product to a friendSo glad to see that BRS is finally carrying the smaller Regal 150SSS. I unfortunately had to buy it elsewhere because it wasn't offered at the time. This is a solid skimmer. Pulls a ton of thick skimmate. The pump is super quiet and runs cool. LOVE the float switch feature to prevent cup overflow. The build quality is excellent. I think this will finally be the last skimmer I ever buy for my 90 gallon heavy bio-load mixed reef. I have been thru many trying to avoid paying so much, but you get what you pay for and I have not regretted this purchase once. I recommend Reef Octopus products highly. Got their VarioS-6 running as my return too. I've been reefing since 1989 so have been thru more than my fair share of bad equipment...this is not one of those products. Love it!!!!
