I just want to know if the pump for the skimmer is submersible in water. If so, is it fully submersible. Also, anyone else who has a reef octopus that doesnt have the pump in the unit, could you give me some details and tips on this skimmer? Thanks.
Yes, the pump is fully submersible. That is the advantage of the skimmer you have over the bh1000 and bh2000. The bh1000 and bh2000 have external pumps which some people have experienced noise with. With the bh100, 100f, 300, 300f the pump is in the tank. Thus, no noise.
True, i figured it out tho. There was this extra piece that i thought screwed onto the air valve on the pump but it didnt. This extra piece made it look freakin gigantic. But now its just like a little box in the water so its alright. It still is sort of annoying to have a decent sized black block floating in the water lol.
