  • Outstanding quality By GetoScholar on 12/28/2016

    I bought a second hand 210 gallon aquarium that had a underrated skimmer. After researching for days and reading reviews of different manufacturers reef octopus was the affordable choice. Super easy to install, it is very well constructed. The flow rate from the pump is very powerful and reasonably quiet. This skimmer is well worth the money. After a month with this product, so far so good I'm a satisfied customer and so are my fish.
  • best skimmer By coloreef125 on 4/21/2016

    best skimmer i have ever had.. Over 20 yrs in the hobby. Was replacing the pump every year, year and a half on my ASM skimmer. Have this one for 3 years now and still works as good as when I first bought it..
  • Prefect buy By Clive on 4/18/2016

    I needed to replace the awful Red Sea skimmer I got with my Red Sea 650 tank, this is perfect for my tank, fits in the sump nicely and within 24 hrs it was getting out so much waste, had it now for 3 weeks, and she's still perfectly skimming, it's a no brainier, buy this one, you won't go wrong.
  • Awsome By Bozzman on 4/9/2016

    This thing is a monster and works like one
  • Pretty with tweking By Horacio on 12/21/2015

    This is an awesome skimmer I have it on my 225g, and it skims pretty amazingly. But it's break-in time is a bit longer than I expected and is very picky with water depth of not exactly where is say it doesn't work as good. Overall it's a great skimmer if used exactly how they describe in the manual.
  • Gunk Pumper By bobby on 3/20/2015

    this skimmer will pump the gunk out of your tank fast
  • great By diemaker on 10/22/2014

    this product is great i bought it with the neck cleaner and installed it in my red sea 650 max almost no break in
  • Great skimmer By Marc on 7/20/2014

    Replaced my old skimmer with one of these after hearing around how great they were. After just a few days I noticed a HUGE difference in the gunk it was removing. Highly recommended.
  • Skimmer for deep cleaning By Goncharkina on 7/14/2014

    This skimmer does an amazing job, it produces foam almost every day in my 120 gallon ( overstocked) tank. Great piece of equipment, I would recommend buying an oversized skimmer, because it will not only clean your tank very well, skimmer's life is going to be longer since you are not running it on 100% capacity all the time.

Will this skimmer fit in my ruby 36s sump from trigger systems on the first chamber
Question by: Alberto Sanchez on Aug 1, 2014 5:24:00 PM
Hi Alberto,
We don't carry those particular sumps here. How big is the chamber you have to work with?

Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Mar 27, 2015 6:45:00 AM
BRS recommended sump water depth is 6-6.5" and reef octopus suggest 7.9-8.7" Are you recommending a lower sump water level than the manufacturer?
Question by: Crystal Mechtel on Jul 27, 2017 7:24:00 PM
Hey there,
Thanks for getting in touch with us in regards to skimmer submersion depth. I personally find that my reef octopus skimmers run the best right around 8". On this item I would follow what the manufacturer says. I am guessing the 6-6.5 is a general reference. Please let us know if there is anything else that we can assist with. Thanks!
