Reef Octopus Protein Skimmers
Reef Octopus Protein Skimmers are a name synonymous with Reef Keeping around the world. They are known for their amazing customer service, superior performance, and outstanding durability. No matter what type of tank you're keeping, there is a Reef Octopus Skimmer made for your tank. These skimmers come in 3 models. The Classic models are the intermediate or "entry level" skimmers. The Regal Line is the next model up, and takes all the benefits of the classic line and adds a programmable DC pump. Next up is the Elite Line. The Elite Line takes all the power and performance of the Regal Line and add a Reef Octopus VarioS pump. The Elite we have tested against some of the most expensive skimmers in the industry and they performed almost identically if not better.

Reef Octopus Protein Skimmers are such a vital part of successful reef-keeping because they remove dissolved organic compounds from your tank. These are particles that are too small to be trapped by any other type of filtration that can lead to high nitrate levels in your tank. Another benefit of protein skimmers is they remove pheromones from your aquarium which can lead to stressed tank members.
