The pump is external and sits on the outside of the unit precisely placed at the bottom. This keeps the pump from adding heat, stray voltage, and unnecessary noise vibrations into the aquarium water before water is returned back to the aquarium. This also adds to the life of the pump, by keeping salt erosion at bay, unlike other HOB models that place the pump internally.
Water quality and consistency is crucial to the success of a marine aquarium. The Reef Octopus HOB Series protein skimmer will help to ensure that success.
