AquaC

The AquaC Remora and Remora Pro are undoubtedly the most efficient hang on skimmers available today, and what better than an accessory that boosts their performance by as much as 20%! The AquaC Surface Prefilter is a special box designed to hide the skimmer pump, thereby creating a more aesthetically pleasing aquarium. The Surface Prefilter isn`t just about looks, however. Ever notice that oily "skin" on the top of your aquarium? The Surface Prefilter skims water off the top of the tank, which is often coated with a heavy load of organics. This can improve skimming by as much as 20% (much darker, smellier foam), and the prefilter has a slotted edge just like an expensive overflow box. The Surface Prefilter also contains a bubble eliminating sponge to get rid of those microbubbles that sometimes escape back to the aquarium. The water return area can also serve as a media chamber for those who choose to use activated carbon or phosphate removing compounds.

The Surface Prefilter installs in seconds and requires no tools - just attach to the pump and turn your Remora or Remora Pro hang on skimmer into a waste removing machine!

PROS
Built sturdy. Conceals MJ pump and perhaps a small heater.
CONS
Expensive. Could be more functional with the addition of a media basket/tray.
REVIEW
This little box is well built, but does not hold terribly well to the aquarium. I ditched the suction cups and siliconed it onto the back of my aquarium instead.

Although the box will conceal the pump (and perhaps a short heater in the return portion, the box could be improved with more tee...Read More

REVIEW
1) The box is HUGE. It will hide the pump to make the tank look cleaner but it takes up a lot of space. 2) Suction cups make it secure but it is very difficult to get to the cups to detach once it is on. 3)Very sensitive to water levels so it has to be closely monitored. Overall, it looks grea...Read More

REVIEW
Extremely easy setup. Short break in time. Millions of micro-bubbles. Basically forced to get pre-skimmer attachment to get rid of the bubbles. Loud at times. But it does produce quality skim. Get the pre-filter box to save some time.

REVIEW
Pre skimmer isn't as much of an eye sore as I thought it would be, probably helps that I have a black background. It does effectively eliminate most micro bubbles reentering the tank. The "pre-skimmer" effectiveness is debatable.. It's nearly impossible to maintain the proper water level f...Read More

good solution to surface skim

reviewerbadge
REVIEW
Pros: This box does improve the performance of the Remora Pro skimmer in two ways. One, it allows you to have an overflow box to skim the surface oils creating a nice and clean water surface. Second, in my case I was able to better control the flow rate of the pump without using a flow valve. The sh...Read More
