AquaC The revolutionary AquaC protein skimmers do not use venturis, downdraft tubes, or air pumps; they employ the patented "Spray Injection System." This innovation allows the protein skimmer to efficiently draw in much more air than any other of the top protein skimmers. This coupled with the superiorly designed compact reaction chamber yields results that will literally blow the waste out of your water.

How does Spray Injection Work?

In 1998, Jason Kim (owner and founder of AquaC) developed a patented process of protein skimming which has come to be known as Spray Injection. Unlike previous forms of skimming, our spray injection method enables huge amounts of air and water to be processed with a relatively small pump. Although it is a simple process, there is still some confusion as to how the spray injector works.

Imagine that you're washing your car – you've got a bucket full of soapy water and a garden hose with a fast-moving stream of water. By placing your thumb over the end of the hose, you can disrupt the stream into a turbulent, high –pressure spray. Now direct that spray down into the bucket of water, and you'll generate a massive amount of bubbles and air flow. That is exactly how our spray injector works.

The skimmer body acts as a water reservoir – the bucket in the example above. Water is pumped through the spray injector, which has a special nozzle that fans the water out into a pressurized spray. This spray shoots into the skimmer body, generating millions of tiny air bubbles. As the bubbles are formed, more air is sucked into the skimmer as a result of the local drop in pressure and the process continues.

Most other forms of protein skimming rely on special valves or media to generate the air flow, and these parts quickly become clogged with salt, dust, or even mineral deposits. The AquaC spray injector is a relatively large nozzle that resists clogging, and when combined with a pump prefilter, can be considered maintenance free.

"For its compact size and simple design, The AquaC protein skimmer is able to process a large volume of water and efficiently remove organic pollutants. I`m very happy with it!"
Fernando Nosratpour, Senior Aquarist
Birch Aquarium at Scripps


The AquaC Remora Series is the first hang-on protein skimmer under $250 to be able to generate a dry consistency of foam that previously only an in-sump "super-skimmer" is capable of.

Features:
  • The Remora is built from translucent gray acrylic to inhibit the growth of algae and marine organisms.
  • The skimmer can be ordered with a collection drain fitting (optional).
  • The two screws at the base of the skimmer are used to adjust the Remora so that it is level with the back of the tank.
Specifications:
  • Tank Size (Gallons): 20-75
  • Dimensions: 19" tall x 6" wide x 2-3/4" deep
  • Minimum tank opening 5-1/4" x 1-1/2"
  • Minimum tank height 12-1/2"
  • Minimum space behind tank 2-3/4"
  • Maximum tank lip 1-3/8" wide
  • Vertical clearance above tank 10-1/2"
  • Includes nylon cleaning brush

REVIEW
The pump hangs in the tank and is pretty big. The skimmer box option is even more intrusive. I returned it and found another make that is just as slim with the pump on the back side.

REVIEW
I am cycling a new tank so I haven't really used the skimmer. I hooked it up to make sure it worked, and it was working the way it should. But what I can tell you is that it is runs quiet, and appears to be made solid with good fittings. As far as skimming I don't know yet but I expect it will fine...Read More

EXCELLENT !

REVIEW
I only give it a 4 out 5 rating simply because I just installed it on 7/1/2013. Two days after installing it started pulling pollutants out of the water. I also bought and installed the pre-filter box in which I put a small bag of ChemiPure Elite in. The skimmer comes pretty much ready to go, hook u...Read More

REVIEW
My unit works fine. I am using the 1200 Maxi-Jet pump.After 3 weeks the skimmer settled in to my my system, nano 30gal. Very dry skimmate now and very little tank water is being removed-fairly dark. Upon first use I was dumping a lot of tank water no matter how high I adjusted the cup. My unit runs ...Read More
