Great silent skimmer!

Hooked up this skimmer and in minutes it was producing skimates! The best thing about it so far is that the skimmer is very quiet...unlike my remora pro! I'll probably switch my tank with the remora pro to a reef octopus. Only downside is that there's no real instructions..only pictures but once you got a couple things on its pretty easy to figure out the rest. I would highly recommend this skimmer to all my reef friends!

Once you get past the poor instructions this skimmer works very well. I have a 180 gallon aquarium and am running this skimmer with an AquaPro C remora. The AquaPro C no longer produces any skimmate so my assumption is this skimmer is more powerful and has made my AquaPro C obsolete (not additive as I had hoped). The small amount of foam from my intake to my algal turf scrubber that was apparent before I installed this skimmer has disappeared so it might be sufficient for my aquarium.
