AquaC Remora Pro Hang-On Protein Skimmer Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

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.

  • 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.

AquaC Remora Pro

Reviewers Rating Excellent!

Posted: 6/26/2013 from OREGON UNITED STATES
5.0 5
Experience Level: Intermediate

Comments: This skimmer began to collect skimate, albeit watery, within 24 hours. After 8 days the foam is beginning to tighten up nicely. I have a light bio load in 55 gallon tank. This skimmer is replacing a CPR Bak-Pak 2R which was much less efficient or consistent. The aquac Remora Pro is also very quiet in comparison. I would also like to add that customer support is excellent.

Comments: I am stuck have to have a HOB skimmer. I tried a Prizm (bad) Coralife (immense) and a Reef Octopus (kept ingesting fish) - bought this skimmer for my 65 reefer and it works great. Very thoughtful design and effective also. I strongly suggest you get the optional external box attachment.

Comments: This is a great protein skimmer! It is far more efficient than any other skimmer I have seen before. The only thing I do not like is how you go about plumbing the pump to the skim box. I wish they would have used something else other than clear tubing.

Comments: I have used this product for about four years and have had very good results with it. It has been pretty much trouable free. I had no idea how much bigger the pro model. But it will be a better fit for my aquarium. I highly reccomend this product to other aquarists, no venturis to mess with/

Comments: I have a 75 gallon TruVU with built in wed/dry system. It was difficult trying to find a hang on back protein skimmer that could handle the tank size and still fit on back of tank without hitting wall. I also wanted a protein skimmer that had the pump in the tank instead of outside, in case of leaking issues and noise. It took a week and half to fully kick in, but it is working quite well. It looks nice and the cup is easy to remove and clean.

Experience Level: Intermediate

Comments: Had this this for a few days and it is on the lowest level. At the lowest level this skimmer still only produces watery skimmate. It is not really that loud and looks sleek. If your buying a dimmer based on looks this would be the one but if your buying based on performance I do not recommend.
