AquaC 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!

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-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.
Specifications:
  • Tank Size (Gallons): 20-75
  • Dimensions: 19" tall x 6" wide x 2-3/4" deep
  • Minimum tank opening 5-1/4" x 1-1/2"

REVIEW
After having a lot of difficulty with an internal skimmer, I was overdue with switching to something better. I don't appreciate any visible filtration device hung on my tank but after watching marine depot's skimmer reviews on youtube for the JBJ 45RL, I decided to take a chance on the Aqua C Remor...Read More

REVIEW
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 ...Read More

I bought this skimmer to replace a coralife super skimmer 65 which was loud and needed constant adjustment. The aquac remora s is great. Very quiet and breakin period only lasted 3 days and it started pulling dark skimmate. Basically plug and play.

REVIEW
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 th...Read More
