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 product By Bryan on 5/5/2019Bryan would recommend this product to a friendThis is my first skimmer. It took me awhile to adjust (2 weeks). I had to build a homemade base and play with the configurations a whole bunch, but when it finally gets tuned I haven't touch it it 2 months. Only weekly to clean the cup. I wish it came with a better manual instead of referring you to a website which in my opinion wasnt very helpful. The product is great and I did over size the skimmer but i love the fact that you can dial down the skimmer with a touch of a button. Plus the sensor on the collection cup is a must.
Working with CoralVue By Erik on 3/23/2018Erik would recommend this product to a friendAll together working with BRS and the product itself really is amazing and I’ve loved the Skimmer itself from day one. But after having it for a year, the pump stopped working and with it still under warranty, I had to contact CoralVue whom does the warranty and had to pay to have the controller, pump and power supply sent back to them to diagnose what was wrong (they did send me a second controller with no hassle to see if that is what was wrong, but of coarse that had to be sent back as well). After diagnosing it, it was the power supply that had failed and they were to ship it back to me. That email was sent Monday, and on Friday I emailed them and asked for my tracking number - and they informed me that my package had been delayed.. but then they shipped it out a couple of hours later after I had emailed them. All together for a premium product that was this expensive to buy, I won’t be buying anything that has to do with dealing through CoralVue.. I’m pretty upset about this whole experience. All in all I was only without a Skimmer for a little over 2 weeks so far, and I’m lucky I had nothing die due to nitrate spikes - so I will have no long lasting side effects from this. But all together spending as much as I did, I can feel confident that I will not buy anything CoralVue related again.
