Reef Octopus BH-90 HOB Protein Skimmer Information

BH-90 skimmer is totally a new hang on skimmer, not like your common hang on design, it have a cylindrical main body and use the siphon to feed water in to the skimmer which reduces the load on the pump while increasing the air generated. Capable of skimming the top of the water surface avoiding the ugly oil buildup that can accumulate and hinder light penetration. A cylindrical reaction chamber, the bubble chamber and conical body to neck transition,all help disperse the air gently and reducing turbulence as the collected organics make it into the collection cup. It is also very easy to be set up. Two adjustable PVC screws makes it could be stably fixed on your aquarium tanks.

Comments: My BH-90 has been running for about 1 year now on my 60 gallon tank and it is beyond excellent. Keeps the water parameters where they need to be and oxygenates the water at the same time. My fish are doing awesome. Prior to this I bought a Sealclone skimmer at Petco, but it was as loud as a vaccum cleaner. The BH-90 is so quiet you cant even hear it!!!!

Comments: I've have owned several skimmers and this one is by far the best! I absolutely love the fact that skimmer pump is not in the tank taking up space! I recently owned a coral life skimmer and it was a piece of c***. The prism skimmer is nice but its too small for 55 gal and above. This skimmer is the answer if your looking for a hang on the back skimmer!

Comments: I've had one of these skimmers up and running on my biocube 29 for quite some time. It is very good at pulling up dark thick skimmate. My only gripe is that to do a deep cleaning I have to take a wash it out with a garden hose as the main body of the skimmer isn't very accessable so it's pretty much impossible to clean otherwise. Still one of the better HOB Skimmers available.

Comments: I have had this skimmer in service for three days now. Marine Depot was incredibly fast in processing and shipping the order. First I had to get past the lack of any kind of reasonable set up instructions and some partial assembly that I had to undo and correct due to cross threading that resulted on O-rings that leaked, frustrating. However, once it was up and running it has been fantastic. Very quiet, very efficient and great build quality. I previously a Coralife Super Skimmer, no comparison ! This is a great skimmer and I would strongly recommend it to anyone needing and HOB skimmer.

Comments: Received this skimmer in great shape, well packaged and sent timely. It took a couple of days to break in, but is now producing dark green skim mate. The only reason I knocked the rating down a half star was the instructions that come with the skimmer are pretty useless.
