Reef Octopus Classic 90 HOB Protein Skimmer

BH‐90 skimmer is totally a new hang on skimmer, not like your common hang on design, it have a cylindrically main body and use the siphon to feed water in to the skimmer which reduces the load on the pump while increasing the air generated. Capable of skimming the top of the water surface avoiding the ugly oil buildup that can accumulate and hinder light penetration. A cylindrical reaction chamber, the bubble chamber and conical body to neck transition,all help disperse the air gently and reducing turbulence as the collected organics make it into the collection cup. It is also very easy to be set up. Two adjustable PVC screws makes it could be stably fixed on your aquarium tanks.

  1. Well built, tricky to set up, works nice when done Review by Ken
    Product Rating:

    I have this on a light bio-load FOWLR tank and it does a great job, but takes a long time to set up and break-in. I still do not think I have it completely set. When you are setting up the skimmer, be very careful to understand and double check everything. The instructions are not easy to understand, and you will need to go over all the components based off the diagram to find where the O-Rings go when assembling the item.

    The unit is well built though, so no complaints there. I like the look as well, which is a bit different from most HOB skimmers you will find on the market these days. The collection cup drain is a nice feature for those of us that are lazy, just I would recommend while first starting the skimmer up, to drain directly to the tank until you find that you are not just sucking pure water through the skimmer and are actually getting skimmate (Posted on 7/21/2014)
