Regal Skimmer Setup Guide


VarioS Controller Quick Start Guide


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.

  • Awesome skimmer By Bing on 7/13/2017

    I'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 7/13/2017

    So 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!!!!
