REVIEW
I have been running the 150 INT for 3 month now so I thought I would give my input. I run a 75 gallon display with a 20 long sump.

I have had many skimmers over the years. Some way more advanced than reef octopus, some less. This skimmer along with most of their skimmers always have served me well. They stick to basics and keep it simple. Easy to set up, Love Love Love this!

REVIEW
This skimmer is a beast!! I installed about a month ago and it is running smoothly and correctly. The slim cup has been regularly filling up. The reason for my purchase was adding some fish which require more frequent feeding and increasing bio load. This skimmer definitely can handle the increase. ...Read More

REVIEW
The Reef Octopus Classic 150 has stripped soooo many organics than the previous skimmer I was running. I run a 150 in my reef system as well and a lot has changed in the past 2 years. Incredible item, incredible site and service through marine depot. I couldn't be happier!
