AquaC Remora-S Hang-On Protein Skimmer w/ Drain Fitting (No Pump) Information

AquaC Remora-S Hang-On Protein Skimmer without Pump

NEW FOR 2012! The Remora-S features a redesigned High-Flow Spray Injector that increases air and water flow. The new injector also produces smaller air bubbles that boosts performance higher than ever before. The newly redesigned skimmer includes a taller collection cup, doubling the capacity, with a larger foam tower 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!

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.

  • The Remora-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.
  • Tank Size (Gallons): 20-75
  • Dimensions: 19" tall x 6" wide x 2-3/4" deep

Comments: I've had three other HOB skimmers and this one is just plain better. The CPR Backpack is also good, but it is much louder and its collection cup is small by comparison. The Remora-S produces skimmate like a larger in-sump unit. The attachable skimmate outlet is brilliant. I connected a few feet of hose to it and put a valve a few inches from the end. Now my Remora empties into a 2-liter bottle in the tank stand/cabinet. When I want to empty the bottle, I simply close the valve so skimmate stops flowing, dump the bottle down the drain, then put the bottle back and open the valve. Unbelievably convenient. I can easily go over a week without emptying the bottle. It's going to produce some in-tank bubbles -- no worse than the CPR Backpack. These are reduced after a couple weeks. In larger tanks (75g+) it's no big deal. In a smaller tank (<20g), you would probably have bubbles throughout the tank. Great product. It costs more, but you get more.

Comments: I am extremely pleased with this skimmer. Plugged it in and within a day it was already working. Took a few days to get a dry versus wet foam.

Comments: Great product,built well, easy install,set and go unit, says it takes up to two weeks to break in, i have it installed for 3 days and the amount of nasty looking stuff this thing is pulling out is unbelievable cant wait to see what it does after it breaks in. they say it will quit down after it breaks in but i didn't find it to be to noisy to start with, i also purchased the over flow accuracy would d recommend this, it works well and hides the pump. i would say to anyone that needs to go with a H.O.B skimmer this is the one to go with hands down.

Comments: This skimmer works great! It is very quiet and perfect if you don't have the room for a sump. I like to use a carbon filter in the skimmer box to help keep extra clean. Highly recommend!

Comments: I bought this skimmer last week and installed it. I cleaned it and the pump with lots of warm water then a vinegar and warm water solution. Then I rinsed it with DI water. That seemed to work well because it was skimming right away. The first three days it was pulling out light colored tea but by the third day it was pulling out dark dry skimate. I noticed some micro bubbles in the return the first day but I wasn't worried since I hung it in my sump/refugium. It went away by the next day. The noise level is pretty quiet. I highly recommend it. It's easy to set up too even with the lacking instructions.

Comments: I have been running this skimmer for 3 months now and I have no ploblems at all. It is very quiet and does the job. During the break in period it produces a lot of micro bubbles and a little bit of noise, but that went away after about 3 or 4 days. Every time I feed frozen mysis shrimp it stops skimming for an hour or two and does produce some micro bubbles for that time period. I would highly recommend this skimmer. There is no airline tube to produce the air in take noise that other skimmers make.

Comments: The new Remora - "S" is very nice. I have it running on a 40 gal Breeder with a 10 gal sump below in my cabinet. Shipping was fast as usual. I got it out of the box and found that the neoprene muffler was not there. I looked everywhere in the box and the skimmer - nothing! I e-mailed AquaC and got a reply the following day from Steve the VP. He shipped one out to me that day and I got it in just a few days. Its true - their customer service is top notch. So, I used the skimmer without the muffler for a week during its break-in period. I put the muffler on tonight and its a HUGE difference. The noise went to almost zero. Very nice! Also note that I did not want to lose a bunch of water during the break in period so I stuck a short piece of tubing on the drain fitting and dumped the watery skimmate back in to the tank for 4-5 days. Once it started making really good skimmate, I attached a longer piece of tubing and ran it to a larger bottle. It's still a bit too wet but I'm still adjusting the collection cup level. This skimmer is really great so far.

Comments: First Remora Customer Service TOP NOTCH! Get a fitting to plug the drain or simply rubberband a drain hose to close it off. Then wait 10-14 and watch a ton of bubbles while its breaking in. When its foaming really good, ultilize the drain. It produces a ton of whatever skimmate you want, dry/wet ,,,,this is a little beast!
