The large Reef Octopus Protein Skimmer utilizes a recirculation pump design to offer skimming for larger aquariums. The recirculation pump is a Hailea OTP Pinwheel pump with an o-ring sealed union mount to the cast acrylic body of the skimmer. The hybrid (half cone) design produces better foamate stabilization and utilizes a quick release Collection Cup with an optional drain for less frequent cleaning. This skimmer can be used either in-sump or externally next to a sump and will require an additional water feed pump. (It is best to add an in-line ball valve to help control the water level in the skimmer.) The water level in the reaction chamber is also controlled by a precision gate valve outlet. If the skimmer is used in a sump the water level in the sump should be 6-10” deep. The use of a recirculation pump allows a higher flow rate through the reaction chamber for skimming larger aquariums without requiring a massive size reaction chamber. There is a one year warranty on the skimmer and pump.
