AquaC Remora Pro-S Hang-On Protein Skimmer without Pump

NEW FOR 2012! The Remora Pro-S features a redesigned High-Flow Spray Injector that increases air and water flow. The new injector produces smaller air bubbles that boosts performance higher than ever before. The newly redesigned skimmer includes a larger mixing chamber and a taller, double-capacity, collection cup. The larger foam tower on the collection cup helps to handle the extra foam production. A neoprene noise muffler, specially designed to fit around the injector, is included to reduce noise. Improved tank-mount hardware is also included.

Factory testing at Aqua C suggests a 30% increase in skimming performance!

Information
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.

Unlike previous forms of skimming, the patented Aqua C 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.

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.

"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 S 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 Pro-S is built from translucent gray acrylic to inhibit the growth of algae and marine organisms.
  • The skimmer now includes a collection drain fitting as a standard feature.
  • The two screws at the base of the skimmer are used to adjust the Remora-S so that it is level with the back of the tank.

AquaC Pro S

Very nice skimmer, well built. Very happy with the size and performance. It is a bit noisy at first but does get quieter as time goes on, not as silent as I would like but a non issue for me. Overall very pleased.

Great Skimmer

Before I purchased I asked a few questions on the Aqua C website. These were promptly answered by the owner and were very informative. Have had the skimmer running for abut 6 months and nothing but good things happening. Really pulls out the crap from tank. I tend to over feed but havnt had to worry as the skimmer pulls out so much. I used a Sicce 2.0 as the Danner wouldn't fit in the back of my Red Sea Max 250. Installed a valve to fine tune and great results! I got the model with the drain in the cup and hooked into a 2.5 gallon jug with a quick disconnect up by the cup to make easy cleaning. One note don't over tighten the drain fitting in the cup as it will crack the cup. Overall great skimmer.

Highly Recommend

Purchased this Remora Pro-S with Mag 5 pump for my 125 gallon mixed reef tank and wow!!! ...started skimming immediately. I would highly recommend the skimmer box accessory as it will decrease the micro bubbles being released back into tank during the break in period. Prior to installing this new skimmer, I had purchased an elegance coral which rapidly declined in health and potentially caused my water quality to decline while deteriorating...and for a week all of my zoas were closed up and rbta died. I did a 50% water change the same day I installed this skimmer and literally, all of my zoas are open again the following day. I don't typically review products but I have to contribute this to the skimmer. Some users mentioned wet skimming which is what I'm probably experiencing during this break-in period as I have the drain port hooked up to a hose which leads into a 5 gallon bucket under the aquarium stand. The bucket is 1/4 filled after two days of aggressive white foam. Highly recommend!

Crystal clear

The remora pro s is an amazing skimmer. I have it on my 125 gal. tank, the water is crystal clear and the nitrates are at zero ppm.The waste from the collection cup is a dark greenish brown.That let's me know it's doing its job. It's also quiet since it has broken in. Break time was about a week but I really like my remora pro s protein skimmer.
