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.

Quiet and Powerful By Brian on 2/5/2018Brian would recommend this product to a friendI am running this on a 300g tank and even in its lightly stocked tank this thing can pull massive amounts of skimmate.
On top of this, it is REALLY quiet. You can barely hear it running. It has been easy to dial.in for me. yeah its sensitive to water level changes but if your water level in your sump is fluctuating.. then your doing something wrong.
Happy as a clam with this purchase
Sensitive By Tank on 11/6/2017Tank would recommend this product to a friendGood skimmer. Quiet for the size. Reason for 3 stars is because it is difficult to stabilize/dial in and as another reviewer mentioned it is very sensitive to water level in sump.
It's good when it works By Anthony on 10/29/2017Anthony would recommend this product to a friendSo I have had this skimmer for a year and have replaced the impeller already once and it just stopped working again so I had to order a new impeller hope that's all it is
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!
Just awesome. By Emmanuel on 5/3/2017Emmanuel would recommend this product to a friendCould have not purchased a better skimmer. Reef Octopus Regal 300INT. Build quality 6 out 5. One our in my tank and all ready a foam head pulling gunk and chunks of nasty stuff out of my water. Highly recommend don't think twice.
Amazing! Super Quiet By Juiceman on 9/1/2016Juiceman would recommend this product to a friendThis skimmer works great! It's very quiet and pulls lots of stuff out. Takes up alot of room so make sure you have the space for it!
