Reef Octopus 100 HOB Hang-on Protein Skimmer
Our BH-100 is an old favorite amongst HOB skimmer users. The pump is mounted within the aquarium. This is a simple user friendly HOB skimmer that we recommend for aquariums up to a 75 gallons.
Simply place the skimmer on the back of the aquarium, mount the pump in place as the instructions list and it is ready to skim. The Reef Octopus skimmers are powered by the Aquatrance 1000s Pinwheel Skimmer pump. They are built with high quality acrylic. The Octopus skimmers uses metric plumbing parts. The pump has an improved venturi design and pinwheel impeller. We developed a new pinwheel impeller that is being provided on all of the BH100 skimmers.
