Reef Octopus Extreme Protein Skimmer Information



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.

great with on small issue Product Review by JOHN BROWNING (Posted on 3/23/14)

Great!

Comments: quiet, efficient, does not take up much space. Only thing I do not like as much is it is not as simple to clean as some of the other models. Takes a little doing to get the cup off and back on. That is really nit picky I know.

A truly impressive skimmer Product Review by MATT (Posted on 2/26/14)

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).

Octopus Diablo Product Review by CHARLES HALL (Posted on 2/26/14)

Great!

Comments: All the reviews I have been reading about this skimmer turned out to be true. I have had it up and going now for about 2 weeks. After a couple of days, I couldn't believe the nasty contaminated waste it was pulling out. My 135 gallon aquarium is 100% R/O water and it still filled the cup with some nasty stuff. I would definately reccommend this to anyone looking for a good skimmer.
