A Must Have Skimmer
I was looking to upgrade my skimmer for some time and did a lot of research. Everything kept coming back to the Reef Octopus Extreme SX 160. The skimmer I replaced just didn't seem to have enough bubbles in my opinion. After receiving the ROE 160, I was blown away at the quality of workmanship on th skimmer. Though there wasn't much in the way of instructions, it is extremely easy to set up. After installing the skimmer, I was amazed! The about of bubbles and how quickly it started to pull gunk was just incredible. If your looking for your fist skimmer or an upgrade, I haven't seen a better skimmer. Worth every penny!!!
