Reef Octopus Classic 90-HOB Protein Skimmer Reef Octopus Classic 90-HOB Protein Skimmer

The Reef Octopus Classic 90-HOB Protein Skimmer is a totally different approach to HOB skimmers as it has a cylindrical main body and is capable of filtering aquariums up to 130 gallons.

    • 130 gallons, light bio load
    • 80 gallons, medium bio load
    • 60 gallons, heavy bio load
