  1. Fantastic Skimmer! Review by Sissy

    First, I would like to thank AquaCave for taking the time to listen to my requirements, then recommending this skimmer.

    I am extremely pleased with the Octopus 5000INT skimmer! This skimmer is on a system with a very heavy bio-load (brood stock system which is fed 4 - 5 times daily) and out performs my expectations! Although the manufacturer said it could take a few weeks to break in, this has been running for a little over one week and I get a nice thick dark skimmate every day.

    The build quality and ease of set up is incredible.

    I HIGHLY recommend this skimmer and AquaCave for their customer service. (Posted on 2/10/2011)

  2. Extreme power --- Hand Built High End Quality Review by morse

    This is a really impressive skimmer. The pump is quiet and the most powerful design out there(2200+ltr air/hr). The 3 year warranty on it speaks for its self. Have owned almost every brand out there and the quality of this unit is as high as you could want with a price that is ultra low for this kind of performance.
    Look no further your skimmer has come in!

    Workmanship A++++
