Improved Compact Performance

As one of the Reef Octopus Classic Series skimmers, this compact skimmer will provide excellent filtration for aquariums up to 200 gallons where sump space may be limited.

As with every Reef Octopus protein skimmer, the Classic 160 is constructed of high quality cast acrylic and features a gate valve for more precise control of water levels within the skimmer, a quick release neck for easy cup removal, cup drain, bubble diffuser, air shredding Aquatrance 2000s pinwheel pump and air silencer. 

Key Benefits found on the Classic 160 Skimmer

- Bubble Diffusing Chamber and Hybrid Cone Body that naturally reduces and stabilizes the foam production; This means less turbulence in the neck area and more contact time for organics to rise and collect

- Oversized Air Silencer for quiet operation and airline mount

- Large Collection Cup with flow directional guide, drain and unit venting

- Precision Control with the easy to turn output flow adjustement valve

- Power provided by the Aquatrace 2000s pinwheel pump which offers super efficiency, quiet opperation and stellar performance

Not recommended for aquariums under 100gallons
