Ultra Slim Hang-On-Back Skimmer

The compact Reef Octopus Classic 1000-HOB is a proverbial favorite amongst hang-on back protein skimmer users providing beneficial filtration for aquariums up to 130 gallons.

With its unique design, the pump is mounted externally and under the actual skimmer body allowing for much less room needed behind the aquarium and less heat-to-water exchange. The Reef Octopus Classic 1000-HOB is constructed of high-quality acrylic and equipped with the new highly efficient Aquatrance pinwheel pump that produces an ideal mix of water and air for optimal waste removal.

Bioload Handling

The bioload of an aquarium refers to its ability to process waste in proportion to tank volume. Protein skimmers work best when properly matched with the bioload of the system.
