Good skimmer

Reviewers Rating Excellent!

Comments: I have been using this RO INT skimmer for 3 years now. It really skims well on my 40g tank. It is a little finicky about water level in the sump but is easy enough to adjust. Just make sure that it is sitting in around 5-7 inches and you should be good. It isn't that loud either, but it does vibrate a little.

Comments: Just installed this little skimmer on my new 57 gallon reef and so far so good. Good build quality, easy assembly, and after a little wipe down its already trying to pull dry skim. Very quiet too which is a plus. Delivery took 9 days though (not good).

Reef Octopus NWB 200

Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: I had a NWB 150 and liked it so much that I got a NWB 200 for my new larger tank. Directions say to give it 3 to 4 weeks to break-in but I was getting great skimmate after only 1 week. The only improvement I would like to see is to be able to get below the bubble plate to clean the lower reaction chamber. This has nothing to do with its performance but would be nice to be able to clean this part out. High quality parts w/ strong thick plexiglass. I highly reccomend this skimmer.
