Comments: I have had this skimmer for about 3-1/2 years now and have had no trouble with it. It runs quiet, reliably and performs well. I do not regret this purchase whatsoever. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an in-sump protein skimmer.

Reef Octopus NWB 200

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.

Comments: I love this skimmer! My reef inhabitants love it! You just set it and forget it. I doesn't require "tuning" as so some others. It is very effective in keeping the water protein free. Best skimmer I have had.

Comments: The cup on this thing is huge. Every other day it's pretty much full great skimmer. The only thin I didn't realize is how big the foot print is with the motor attached. I had to customize My sump to accommodate this skimmer. I used two compartments in my sump and drilled a 2" hole between them so skimmer on one side and pump on the other.

Comments: This Reef Octopus Skimmer is absolutely outstanding. It took less than 10 minutes to assemble and put into the sump. Tuning the skimmer was very easy and within 30 minutes it was skimming dark green liquid. Highly recommend!
