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.

“leaky let down”

This product had a pin hole leak where the plumbing from the pump meets the skimmer. I expected higher initial quality for the premium price of this skimmer.

“Great HOB”

I purchased the AquaC Remora Pro with the Rio 1400 to hang on the side of my 120gal reef (got the Rio for size reasons). I waited more than 2 months to comment so I could report on how it is to live with this skimmer for a while. A few observations: 1) it pulls out tons of water during the break i...Read More

“This is the one you want”

I have to use a Hang on the tank (HOT) type set up as I am not running a sump. Not many choices for users like this, and I dont believe I should have to pay upwards of $400 to get a decent rig. I have tried them all, and this one is the best in the bunch. Why? Its powerful, priced right and works. H...Read More

“Everything expected from AquaC”
5.0

I've used an AquaC 180 skimmer for years on my large reef tank so naturally chose AquaC when I needed an hang-on skimmer for another tank. The skimmer was setup and running in minutes. Super simple. I, like most, read the directions after equipment is already installed and running. <grin> ...Read More

“Good Skimmer”
4.5

My AquaC Remora Pro has thus far performed as advertised. It's been 5 days since we started it up, and feel like we have it dialed in now. A few things I have noted: 1) this skimmer is not as noisy as some have made it out to be. It's not a distraction at all. 2) We use the pre-skimmer box for the...Read More
