Reef Octopus Regal Skimmers now come with the ground-breaking VarioS S pinwheel series of pumps. Compared to conventional AC-style pumps, the DC power source of the new pumps has a number of advantages. The VarioS pumps may be fully controlled by a third-party controller or the included control unit. Regal skimmers may be adjusted for the greatest performance on your particular system using 5 different preset speeds and a number of feed modes.

Since the pumps are housed inside the body of the protein skimmers, they require a significantly smaller footprint. The increased height optimizes the amount of contact/dwell time and response chamber size, allowing for enhanced filtration capabilities. These sorts of skimmers are often a little bit taller than its counterpart.
