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.
Internal protein skimmers that have the pump mounted externally will normally be more efficient than a space saver model (internally mounted pump) due to the fact that there is more room in the skimmers reaction chamber, and less overall turbulence. They do require a bit more space but if your sump can fit a protein skimmer that has an externally mounted pump you will see much better results.

Hard to get dialed in By Thomas on 8/28/2017Thomas would recommend this product to a friendGood skimmer but it is very hard to get dialed in and it is highly sensitive to water level change in sump. I use it with the auto neck cleaner which helps a lot. This thing is very large, so make sure you have the room in your sump!
