Reef Octopus Classic Protein Skimmer 1000 HOB


The Pinnacle of Hang-On-Back Filtration


The Reef Octopus Classic skimmer is a totally different approach to HOB skimmers as it has a cylindrically main body and is capable of filtering aquariums upto 130 gallons


With its unique design, the pump is mounted externally and under the actual skimmer body allowing for much less room needed behind the aquarium and less heat-to-water exchange. The Reef Octopus Classic 1000-HOB is constructed of high-quality acrylic and equipped with the new highly efficient Aquatrance pinwheel pump that produces an ideal mix of water and air for optimal waste removal.


Bioload Handling
