A protein skimmer is an essential component of a complete aquarium. It removes excess protein from the aquarium before phosphates and ammonia have a chance to form. Protein is a necessary compound for the growth of living things, but too much of a good thing is usually bad. A protein skimmer makes sure that the presence of protein in the aquarium is never excessive.
A good protein skimmer
is one from the Remora Pro or Urchin Pro. The protein skimmers from these series are powerful, efficient, and affordable. Many aquarists have used these protein skimmers through the years for their tanks, and practically all of them are happy with the results.
The great thing about these protein skimmers is that their replacement parts are available in the market. You don't have to replace the whole protein skimmer if only a few parts need changing. For example, if your collection cup needs to be replaced, you can always get the AquaC Collection Cup for Remora Pro/Urchin Pro from Pet Store
The AquaC Collection Cup for Remora Pro/Urchin Pro will fit perfectly in protein skimmers from the Remora Pro and Urchin Pro series. It has the same big, spacious size that the original collection cup comes in. It is made of the same, sturdy material. The quality of the replacement is identical to the quality of the original.
