Product Description

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

Part #: Remora D

Inhibit algae growth and other unwanted marine organisms in your beloved aquarium using the Aquac Remora Hang-on Protein Skimmer from Pet Store with drain fitting, no pump. This product does not have a pump and its drain fitting is optional in the package. Going further, this protein skimmer by Aquac is created from translucent acrylic that has a gray color. Its design and structure is made to make the skimming process fast but effective. Aside from that, the materials that were used to create it are strong enough to withstand long hours of usage.

This product by Aquac is an ideal fit for aquariums with a tank size of 50 to 120 gallons. It is 22 inch tall, 7 ½ inch wide, and 3 ¼ inch deep with a minimum tank opening of 6 ½ inch by 1 inch. Moreover, the package also has a nylon cleaning brush, which is very convenient for pet owners.

Moreover, the Aquac Remora Hang-on Protein Skimmer with drain fitting, no pump can be adjusted if you want it to level with the tanks back. You can do this by adjusting the two screws located at the skimmers base. With all these desirable features of this skimmer, what should hold you back in purchasing it?

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

Couldn't be happier Product Review by Larry (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: After 2 years of nearly maintenance free use, the Remora has done an excellent job on my 37 g reef (total volume includng sump is 44 gallons). The drain fitting is well worth the few extra $$.

One of the best for it's size Product Review by DAREN (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: Have this on my 20g nano and it works great. Love the drain fitting. This thing really pulls out the waste. Have it draining to a 1L bottle and all I can say is eeeewwwww nasty!!

Another great AquaC skimmer! Product Review by JAMES EDMONDS (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: I have used the AquaC EV-180 on a larger system, but have a smaller 30 gallon tank now, and had to get this Remora. This skimmer is great! The first few hours were a bit noisy, and small bubbles (aka "micro" bubbles) were common, but hang in there! After the break-in, it quiets down some (but it's still not quiet; I wish I could give dB data), and the bubbles go away, although I didn't find them disconcerting in the first place.

Good Buy Product Review by PFC THOME (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: I was very skeptical of this from the mixed reviews, listen to me, this is an excellent buy. if you buy the one that does not have the drain fitting you are wasting your money and you will only be the cause of your own demise. the first day or so it will pump a lot of water so put the drain hose right into the tank. after a week it skims dark green/brown sludge. a lot of people said it runs super loud and that was very true the first week, however now my flo pumps are louder than the suction. i dont have any insight on the other pump, i bought the MJ 1200, but thats my preferance, i trust MJ and they work great for me. If you are curious this is a great skimmer for the JBJ 28 gal nano cube however you must remove the plastic holder in the back(no big loss) like all skimmers the tank size is always way larger than what the skimmer can handle so i would not suggest this for anything larger than a 40 gal with an excellent clean up crew. I would say this is a must have if you own a nano cube.
