Hi guys. I am going to be upgrading my skimmer at the end of the month. I am looking at the Reef Octopus Regal 250 ext. I just wanna know from anyone who may be using this skimmer if they happy with it. I like what I see but just would like to hear your opinions.

No experience with either. I am using a cone s and very happy with it. Both skimmers you mentioned seem to have good reviews on several overseas forums. Good luck with your choice.

Thank you NJH.

Yeah I needed to go with a external as when I am away for work my father who is now 70 can access the skimmer with out having to get under the tank. Lol and all the review and what the guys had to say about it on reef central sounds awesome.

I am sure you made the right choice. Just give it time to run in. Giving it a diluted viniger bath will help to run in faster.

Good choice in skimmer...
Reef octopus has been around for a while and I rate their skimmers to be at the top with the rest..Reef octopus has never dissappointed me...
The skimmer you chose, the regal 250e has massive air suction...

A thing of beauty, definitely. The old AM skimmers were nice and worked ok, but these new ones are in a class of their own. :)
