Classic-NWB-110 Skimmer

Coral Vue has introduced two new protein skimmer models to their already vast array of skimmers that they offer.  What makes these different is the super small footprint.  We see these fitting nicely into smaller sumps like the one we are waiting on for our new 24x24x24 rimless cube anemone/clown fish display (more on that a a later date).

The Octopus Classic Skimmers are currently available in two models.  The 110-SSS has a footprint of only 6.1″ x 7.87″  and Body Diameter of 5″.  The height comes in at a relatively shot 19" and the skimmer is said to be able to handle aquariums up to 100 gallons.  The footprint on the 110s bigger brother comes in at 7.3″ x 9.45″ with a body diameter of 6″.  The overall height for the Octopus 150-SSS Classic is 20.8″ with a 150 gallon aquarium rating. 

The Octopus 110-SSS is powered by a Aquatrance 1000s pinwheel pump while the Octopus 150-SSS is driven by the Aquatrance 1800s Pinwheel Pump.  Below is a list of details on both models.  For pricing and availability visit the two links below.

It's not uncommon for the phone to ring and someone wants us to give us our opinnion on the RLSS protein skimmer line.  so we decided to ask our friends at Aqua Nerd permission to repost an article on the RLSS R6i protein skimmer that they recently reviewed.  Thanks to Brandon Klaus at Aqua Nerd for allowing us to repost his article on our blog and it's safe to say we agree with his assessment of the RLSS R6i skimmers.  We would also like to say that much of the information contained in the article can also be applied to the other models of RLSS Protein Skimmers.  Aquarium Specialty will have a new batch of these skimmers arriving next week (week of 4/15/13) in case you would like to place an order for the RLSS R6-i.  Please note that the packaging below is not typical of the way the RLSS skimmers ship.  This was sent direct to Brandon from the factory overseas and they arrive to us in regular retail packaging on a pallet.  Aquarium Specialty then double boxes them to help insure safe delivery.

RLSS R6-i Cup

Ok now for Brandon's review...

Sometimes our product reviews take a little time to fully complete. We strive to test the equipment under both normal and abnormal operating conditions for an extended period of time in an attempt to really gague how the equipment responds. Such is the case for a RLSS R6-i protein skimmer we received last year. We put the DC controllable skimmer on our 80-gallon frag setup and let her run, and we were more than pleased with the tiny skimmer’s performance.
