CLASSIC SPACE SAVER

Build quality is excellent, installed in a tight space in my new sump/refugium with room to spare, and started skimmer an hour after installing. It's my second reef octopus skimmer. They have great customer service, and the service from Marine depot is top notch.

footprint not miss-leading..

With limited space in my sump I only had 8"x11" section for a skimmer. At first I was really worried it would not fit based on Brian Backer's review because once you break the seal on the shrink wrap around the box you can no longer return it. I was reassured it was in fact the exact dimensions stated on CoralVue's website Footprint: 7.3? x 9.45? when I got it fit perfectly! Well made skimmer, skimmer cup does not have a drain but plenty big enough to hold lots of skimmate. I've owned plenty of skimmers in the past and Reef Octopus Classic 150 Space Saver gives you a lot of bank for your buck!!

Qualiy Design

I will copy the other reviews by stating that the instructions are useless and provide little to no information. The video on Marine Depot did help. I replaced my Coralife Super Skimmer after 10 years. I do like the design of the Octopus much better and the footprint is great. I have had it running for over a week now and I must say that my Coralife pulled more gunk than the Octopus. I am a bit disappointed as everyone raves about how great they are. produces tons of bubbles, very quiet. Overall I am satisfied. Surprised on the lack of information from the manufacture. Just happened to come across how to adjust the level. cleaning the pump may be a bit of a pain as it is in the skimmer body but it works great for my small sump and there are less parts to break compared to my old Coralife.

superior shape

I have tried the cone and wine glass shape skimmers. But have to say I am finding this more simple shaped skimmer superior to the others. It has much more volume for its foot print so produces more bubbles. IT started working right away with no break in time and is pulling very good amounts of skim.

amazing

Very easy assembly. I was able to find a video online. The skimmer has been in my sump for 2 days now and it is already pulling. Very satisfied.

Excellent for small sumps

I use mine on a 55gal reef tank in Next Reef 20 sump. The two faults I have with it is cup is hard to remove and the adjustments are very sensitive. This maybe because I have a small sump and little room in my stand. However I would defiantly recommend this skimmer.

love it

Simple design, I like the fact that the collection cup just lifts right off without unscrewing and the pump is inside the unit. It makes plenty air bubbles and is producing skim. Quality build too. So far so good, let's see how long works well.

footprint mis-leading..

so far, no complaints with this skimmer, but the footprint is a bit mis-leading... the published footprint is 7.3x9.45, but it's more like 9.0x9.5... in the manufacturers calculation, they forgot to account for the inlet which adds about another 1.5" to the 7.3 dimension...
