Replacement pump for original Reef Octopu Review by Diamond Girl
Product Rating:
I have used a Reef Octopus skimmer for about 8 years on my 220 gallon mixed Reef tank. The skimmer works well for me as I have to maintain a low water level in the sump to have room for the tank to drain down during a power failure. The 3000 is more than enough skimmer for my setup. I would give the skimmer 5 stars if I didn't have to replace the pump ever 3 to 4 years. One big plus is replacement pumps are available and I don't have to buy a complete skimmer.

Just what I needed Review by John
Product Rating:
This replaced my Reef Octopus Extreme 200 venture pump, the problem plaqued PSK-2500. It matched right up with no adapters needed, even though CoralVue said one was necessary - save your money. There is a height difference between the bottom of the skimmer and the pump now that will have to be compensated for. Also this pump should not be operated in more than 6" of water or you will overflow the skimmer. Apparently there is too much back pressure on the pump.

After firing up my skimmer it start pulling foul smelling, dark, nasty green skimmate from my tank immediately. It's been running like a champ ever since with no issues.

Excellent Review by KP
Bought this to replace the pump from Internal bubble king skimmer. Cost is 1/3 that of RD skimmer pump. Fits perfectly on the existing system, immediately started producing nasty dark green foam.You could see the impeller at work. (Posted on 7/6/2011)
