Well worth the money

Installation and Operation Easy to install most of it was together already. Everything was numbered.It is realy low maintinance.Instructions could have explained more about skimmer.


Performance vs. Expectations It works great! started pulling skim about 9 hours after set up.Best skimmer I have ever bought.To keep bubbles down,I turned the outtake tube towards the intake tube. Less bubbles in tank that way.Also I set cup as low as I could for the first few days,until it had broken in (started skimming more)


Value for money For HOB skimmer it is well worth the money. Would buy another one should this one ever wear out.The price isn't that bad.#1 in my book for HOB skimmers.


Customer Support I never had to call them


Liked about it Great price,easy to clean cup,most important is the pump is on the outside,so I don't have heat building up in my aquarium


Didn't like not a thing I didn't like about the skimmer. Except the instruction could have been alittle more informative.

Great littel Skimmer

Installation and Operation Very easy to install. The instructors were clear and easy to follow.


Performance vs. Expectations This is one of the best HOB skimmers I have ever used. It is the only form of filtration that I use and it works like a charm. I have anemones, sps, lps, soft corals, and clams that are all thriving. I get a cup to a cup and a half of good, green, stinking skim each day. Bubble production is awesome and very easy to remove and empty the cup.


Value for money I would compare its performance to some of the best and most expensive HOB skimmers out there so yes it is a good value for the low cost.


Customer Support Did not need them.


Liked about it I love the amount of skimmate and the ease of emptying. I also like the fact that the pump is outside of the tank. This helps the aesthetics of the display tank.


Didn't like The break in time was all I did not like. However, it was only like 3-4 days and that is actually a very short one.

Good for a Hang On type

Installation and Operation Installation is really easy. Comes with all the parts numbered for identification, but not how to put together, although probably because it is not needed very easy to see what goes where. Very low maintenance.


Performance vs. Expectations Performance is ok. First few weeks or so It performed alright, I guess was still breaking in. Low bubble if you face the outflow nozzle towards the back or sides of tank, not towards the front.


Value for money Worth the money, Octopus is a good brand, and it is consistent.


Customer Support I did not have to deal with the company.


Liked about it Easy to put on/take off tank. Skimmate cup is easy to clean. Does not create too much water movement.


Didn't like Created a lot of bubbles (micro) at first. If turn the water output pvc pipe towards the side (i face mine towards the intake) then the micro bubbles go down (or at least don't show up) considerably.

excellent skimmer!

Installation and Operation The instructions aren't needed, if you can figure out a puzzle than you're fine. Be patient for the first week or so and the bubbles in the tank will go away.


Performance vs. Expectations It performs better than I expected, I even used it on my wifes brackish water tank and it pulls a lot of stuff out of her water.


Value for money Excellent product, I'd buy another if I set up another tank


Customer Support Not needed


Liked about it Quiet, keeps my 110g sump-less system very clean. I love the adjustable surface skimmer water intake.


Didn't like Nothing

Customer Support Havent had a problem with it


Liked about it Great foam production
Ease of use
easy to clean

Didn't like my only con is i wish the collection cup fit tighter

Installation and Operation easy to install. Instructions could be better. Easy to operate and maintain.


Performance vs. Expectations performs as well as expected


Value for money great skimmer for the price


Customer Support haven't had to deal with them yet.


Liked about it easy to install and maintain. works great


Didn't like a little noisy, but what do you expect it's a skimmer.
had to modify intake, tube was too long for surface skimming
