Reef Octopus BH 2000

Anyone have one? Would you buy it again? Noise level? Any microbubbles in tank? What size tank so you have it on?
I'm thinking of ditching my canister for one of these on my 40 breeder.

Nobody? How about in comparison to the coralife super skimmer 65?

If it helps I have a BH100 on my 20g, I absolutely love it, no microbubbles whatsoever!

Thanks! I just snagged a ss65 for $30 so I'm going to try it out.... But I'm still lookin at the reef octopus. Would the BH 100 be ok for my 40 gallon?

I would say so, personally I like to double the rating though. So say for your 40 I'd try and get something rated for at least 80g or so. But reef octopus rates it for 75g, something for 100g would be better.

I have the BH100 on my 20g lol

I run a BH2000 on my 55. It put out micro bubbles initially but it goes away shortly after.
