    This is my first Reef Octopus. I put this unit on a frag system build and wow am I impressed. If all of their skimmers are like this one then I see why Reef Octopus has been around for all these years. There's not a lot of bells and whistles on this skimmer, but what is there....works...........WELL. Pulls out thick nasty sludge and never "resets" the way some skimmers do (which means no fiddling with the gate valve once it's set). Really, really love this unit and for the price I don't think you can beat it.

    Really happy with this skimmer. It's been a very reliable piece of equipment in my tank for a year now.
    Would recommend.

    Have had it for 6 months now and only clean the collection cup and neck of the skimmer. Still very quiet and it generates a consistent dark skim.

    Functions best when used with an auto topoff system. If the water level drops or raises(like with most in sump skimmers) it wont skim properly while water is higher or lower than what it was when it was dialed in. Has to be one of the best skimmers ive owned so far. When used in conjunction with an auto topoff and a drain hose there is no issues unless i forget to empty the skimmate.lol.thinking about adding the cleaning blade option.

    Bought this skimmer for my Reefer 170 tank. Within one week of running it started skimming like crazy. Super quite. Very easy to adjust bubble level. The fit and finish of it is amazing. I hihgly recommend.

  7. Skim this Review
    Performance

    Purchased the Reef Octopus 152S for my 90 gallon aquarium after a lengthy discussion with the BRS support staff. The staff at BRS were great at listening to my situation and recommending the RO Skimmer over the "other brand". Setup was relatively easy (after watching a few You Tube Videos. (Thanks Ryan). Spent a couple of days dialing it in and now it is off and running perfectly. Amazing to see the skim being removed. Very quiet operation and looks very cool sitting in the sump bubbling away. Almost makes me want to keep the doors open to my sump just to show it off. Great product at a reasonable price. Hopefully, writing this review doesn't jinx me!

    Bought this based off a recommendation from a friend, couldn't be happier. Ran it for 2 weeks wide open to break the pump in. Raised it up about 3.5 inch and it's doing some serious work. I'd buy another no question.

    I do aquaculture for a living at a research institute. I have three skimmers, the Skimz Monster 252 external, the Vertex Omega 180i, and this one. The Classic 152-S is simple, cheap and effective. Not as sturdy as the Omega 180i but the gate valve makes it much easier to tune than the vertex. If I had a tank at home, this is what I would use.
