REEF OCTOPUS SKIMMER SPECIFICATIONS AND RATINGS
There is a huge variety of Octopus Skimmers available.   We designed this page to be specific on ratings and dimensions so you can choose the right skimmer for you.  Above you will see each Reef Octopus skimmer that you are able to purchase and below a list of details on the skimmers and their footprints.
Footprint = Is the size of the base of the skimmer.  Meaning that is the space the octopus skimmer will take up in your reef aquarium sump.  Be sure the skimmer fits your sump dimensions before your purchase. 
Height = The total height of the protein skimmer.
Aquarium Gallon Rating = The total amount of aquarium gallons the skimmer is able to handle efficently.  The ratings for Octopus protein skimmers are based on light bio loads and should be taken into account.  Large aquariums are recommended to use Super Reef Octopus skimmers with bubble blaster pumps.
