The compact Reef Octopus Classic 1000-HOB is a proverbial favorite among hang-on back protein skimmer users providing beneficial filtration for aquariums up to 105 gallons.

Q
Would this be overkill on a 40g breeder?
Just making sure this isn't more than i need on my new tank. (if there is such a thing)

A
Not at all, this is a great choice for a 40 gallon breeder. The manufacturer recommendations are often way too generous. The AquaMaxx HOB 1.5 is also another highly effective and very popular hang-on skimmer.

Awesome Skimmer

PROS
very powerful and quiet. Best skimmer for your $$$
CONS
Instructions could have better detail, but that's what Youtube is good for
REVIEW
This is the 3rd skimmer I've tried in a year and by far the best. Out of the box and running in less than 30 minutes. Had an issue with a film on the water surface, but this skimmer removed it within an hour

REVIEW
Great Skimmer for the price, not too loud. Takes a few hours for the pump to prime. Just follow a video instruction online.
