Prime Skimmer Filtration

The Reef Octopus Prime 150-INT is an in-sump protein skimmer capable of providing powerful filtration for aquariums up to 150 gallons.

The Reef Octopus Prime is a refined skimmer, constructed of high-quality cast acrylic and PVC that disassembles completely for cleaning. Its unique Super Cone "wine glass shape" body naturally stabilizes and concentrates the organic rich foam as it rises.

Fully equipped with a custom modified Aquatrance 1800s pinwheel pump with rare earth magnet pinwheel impeller, it produces a perfect mix of water and air for optimum waste removal. This skimmer features a unique  “Twist & Lift” collection cup to make removal and cleaning a simple task, an easy to use vented wedge valve provides precise control and an underwater outflow for quiet operation.

Before getting hands on with this skimmer I be reluctant to give this skimmer 5 starts in price or value. But upon assembling I can tell the difference between Reef Octopus standard line compared to their new Prime skimmer. What a difference the cup connection is. They did not mis a heartbeat on this one. Too soon to judge reliability of the aquatrance pump but much quieter and powerful than the sicce 600 on my old XS160 and comes with a 2 year warranty. So far very satisfied.
