In their effort to enhance the efficiency and reliability of their protein skimmers, Reef Octopus have designed and produced their own BLDC skimmer pumps, specifically engineered to meet the high demands of a protein skimmer. Consequently becoming the first skimmer manufacturers in the world to product both pump and skimmer completely in-house.
Protein skimmers help maintain low nitrate levels by retarding nitrate buildup. They remove organic waste before it has a chance to break down and release nitrogen compounds. The use of a protein skimmer is essential in reef aquariums where a very low nitrate level is crucial for coral health.
