Product Manuals & Documentation

Part #: OCT-XS-200

The Extreme XS skimmers are powered by the high performance Italian Sicce pumps. The skimmer has a gate valve output which allows for more adjustment of the skimmer compared to ball valves and the old wedge pipe. The Sicce PSK1000 pump has an improved star wheel impeller. They are much more advanced with a digital circuit to control start up direction and speed, ultra low noise and huge air draw numbers. The skimmer produces up to 32scfh of air pull using the provided pinwheel impeller. (Air results will vary depending on aquarium setup.) Each Sicce pump draws less than 30watts of electricity. The collection cup has a quick release neck for easy removal for cleaning. It requires 1/2 inch of clearance to remove the cup. The Extreme XS skimmer uses metric plumbing parts.

Excellent!

Comments: I have worked with skimmers from hang on Coralife skimmers to RK2 and most everyting in between. The Diablo performs beautifully with very little adjustment, and cleaning it is incredibly quick and easy (no thumb screws or threaded fittings).

Comments: Been running for couple days now....I've seen reviews claiming this product can be loud..I'd say it is not. Pulling some real nice junk out. I've owned a ASM g2 skimmer and this Diablo is far better....love it!

Best decision I've made yet! Product Review by MARK SIMMONS (Posted on 11/24/13)

Excellent!

Comments: This skimmer is great. I opened it up, put it together and got going. Once I figured out that you want the foam just to the top before it spills over, I sat back and waited. Well, just a couple hours later I started seeing the gunk. Lots of it! My previous skimmer was absolute garbage and pulled no where near this amount of skimmate. It's going strong and I feel like the water quality is steadily improving. I have a 125g w a 30g sump and wanted to get a higher rated skimmer. I'm thoroughly impressed. She's solidly built, the pump is powerful and the unit even looks attractive. Winning all around. If you're on the fence for some reason, just pull the trigger. You won't regret it!
