The bh-1000 is a unique design hang on back skimmer in that the pump is mounted external and under the actual skimmer body allowing for much less room needed behind the aquarium. Also by placing the pump outside the skimmer and the aquarium there is no heat exchanged to the water. This design also allows for easy removal of the pump for cleaning and maintenance.

We have two saltwater tanks in our home. One with this skimmer and the other runs a CPR BakPak which has been used by us for 3 years and it was purchased used. The CPR has not failed at all in several years and the Octopus has required 2 previous warranty claims plus the one that was denied. I did all my research and thought the Octopus would be the better skimmer but I was wrong. I would recommend looking at other skimmers that are easier to clean and maintain and also are more reliable. I've gotten about 14 months of use from my Octopus and now will need to purchase another skimmer. I could buy the parts and fix my Octopus but why would I put more money into a piece of equipment that will only run for a few more months before needing more repairs?
important as the fishies.
Works very well. But some flaws. Overflows very easily, when turning on. Also intake sits way to low in water. Even the manufacture suggest cutting 1 to 2 inches off so skims top of water. I cut mine off inch and half and now works perfect. Also had overflow issues and removing the internal sponge would fix that issue.
Update: After about 7 months of use the pump will not come on. Sometimes if let for 6-8 hours it will then start back up. Contacted the company and instead of sending me new pump, want to send me parts to try and fix myself. Or send it in to be rebuilt. So like me you could be without skimmer for several days with all the shipping back and forth. And you will have incur the shipping cost to get it to them.
I guess a 2 year pump warranty means, "Here are some parts, fix it yourself" Not happy at all with there warranty policy.
