Reef Octopus 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
Can Skimmate cup be drilled?
Can you drill the skimmate cup for an overflow tube? I am away from home at different times for different lengths of time and like the option of an overflow tube.

A
The skimmer cup can be modified to collect skimmate, please keep in mind that it would void the manufacturers warranty.
