The Reef Octopus Pro-Series protein skimmers are a new line of products showcased when the Australian company recently relaunched its website. Not to be confused with Super Reef Octopus, Reef Octopus seems to be a separate company although they do deploy similar products including the use of the Bubble Blaster pumps. These Bubble Blaster pumps appear to be the same models utilized by Super Reef Octopus as well as other skimmers on the market.
While the names are similar the Reef Octopus brand shares a lot of the styling and characteristics of the Super Reef Octopus brand so we aren’t sure who’s building what for who when it comes to these skimmers but the bottom line is they are sleek and sexy and we are really intrigued by the Bubble Blaster pumps. The Reef Octopus Pro-Series line “…employs all the finest features of previous octopus skimmers into one powerhouse, setting a new benchmark of performance. Pro-series incorporates a Bubble Blaster pump the ultimate skimming catalyst, look no further.”
With three models — the Reef Octopus Pro-Series X1000, X2000 and X3000 — this line has plenty of punch for a few different sized tanks. In case you are looking for some skimmers that take up less room in the sump, the company is also showcasing the Cone Sump Saver series in three models with a Bubble Blaster pump mounted internally to keep the footprint low. We don’t have pricing yet on these skimmer but we can imagine they are in line with other “Super” Reef Octopus products.
