The Reef Octopus Classic BH-1000 Protein Skimmer is a favorite hang-on back skimmer. Capable of filtering aquariums from 78 to 130 gallons, the Classic BH-1000 features an easy to install and operate design in which the pump is mounted outside the aquarium. To install, simply place the skimmer on the back of the aquarium, mount the pump in place, adjust the intake strainer and it's ready to skim.
