Reef Octopus has been exceptionaly busy producing a steady flow of new protein skimmer designs and models over the last few years we can expect even more. Using a powerful, controllable DC water pump which is indistinguishable from the Waveline DC pump that rocked 2012, Reef Octopus is planning to release no fewer than 11 models of protein skimmers spread across three different designs.
A little over a month ago Coral Vue lifted the veil on the first wave of these DC-powered protein skimmers from Reef Octopus which wil be branded as Diablo skimmers in North America. The Coral Vue Reef Octopus DC skimmers will come in five models of the internal DC Diablo design and three models of the DC Diablo external design. Additionally, we will also have the choice of three models of Diablo skimmers with the DC pump placed inside the skimmer body, which Coral Vue has dubbed the “POV” line, for professional open volute.
It’s been a little while since we’ve seen a good wave of protein skimmer innovations hitting the marine aquarium scene. If you are setting up something new or are due for an upgrade, you absolutely must consider getting a DC-powered design and with 11 models to choose from and a very wide net of distribution, we expect the CoralVue Reef Octopus skimmers to be in front and center of this new trend.
