Sump Space Running Low?
Reef Octopus Elite Super Space Saver Cone Protein Skimmers incorporate the pump into the body of the skimmer, cutting the space requirement up to 25% compared to the Elite INT models. Using an open volute design, the pump sits vertically inside the body pulling water from under the skimmers baseplate, allowing maximum dwell time.

Reef Octopus Elite Protein Skimmers feature a premium cast acrylic body along side the reliable VarioS DC pumps. Compared to other skimmers within the same category, the Elite series of skimmers are far more efficient and quieter. The wine glass shape body allows bubbles to smoothly transfer up into the gathering cup, where many other skimmers use two-piece body designs that make sharp edges and breaks bubbles. Every Elite skimmer comes with an integrated skimmer cup overflow float switch that directly connects to the VarioS pump controller and can shut the skimmer down when the cup is full, eliminating messy and smelly overflows.
Controlling the flow through the Elite series from Reef Octopus is completed by the wedge pipe, which may be twisted easily to regulate the water level inside the skimmer. the opposite method of tuning is that the VarioS pump, which may be adjusted through 5 different speeds which give different air to water ratios. Since not every reef tank is formed an equivalent , having multiple methods to regulate the flow and dwell time can cause a way more efficient protein skimmer.
