AquaC Remora Pro Pre-Skimmer For Rio+ 1400 Powerhead Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

Aside from a standard filtration system, you can also add more systems in place to keep your aquarium clean and healthy. To remove excess protein in particular, you can use a protein skimmer, which is a system that skims off protein from the surface of the water. The protein skimmer works by forming a lot of bubbles -- sometimes, foam -- to which the protein can stick to. The bubbles travel down a tube in the skimmer. Inside the tube, the bubbles burst and disappear, but the protein remains inside the tube for later disposal.

AquaC and Remora are popular protein kimmers in the market today. They are different from the usual protein skimmers because they are hang-on styles. These kind of skimmers can be enhanced by the AquaC Remora Pro Pre-Skimmer for Rio 1400 from Pet Store. This is a box made to be used with a skimmer pump. It hides the skimmer pump from view to make it less obtrusive and to make the aquarium more appealing in the aesthetic sense.

Aside from making your aquarium look more beautiful, the AquaC Remora Pro Pre-Skimmer for Rio 1400 also improves the performance of the protein skimmer by as much as 20%. It can remove the oily film that normally forms on top of the water surface.



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!

    Pre skimmer better than hoped Product Review by MATT PARSONS (Posted on 4/3/14)
    Rating
    Excellent!

    Comments: I have loved the Remora skimmers ever since the first one I bought many years ago. I now have double digit skimmers and the Remoras are the best in my experience considering skim mate, size, value and esthetics. I started a 32 gallon nano reef and for the first time ever I experienced micro bubbles in the effluent water. This stuck to some of the corals, especially the xenias, and caused strings of bubbles to stick to the ends of the xenia. I tried to run the effluent water through a media bag, I tried running it with carbon in the bag with little reduction of the bubbles. Once I bought this skimmer box, I was 100 percent happy with the success at which it removed the bubbles. It also allows me to run ozone to the influent water, add carbon bags to the effluent water and it all looks beautiful.I plan to buy a skimmer box for every tank I own. They install in seconds, improved my skim mate (pulls all the surface film into the skimmer and out it goes to the collection cup) and has made running ozone that much easier.I am going to be using this combo on my FOWLR tanks, my coral tanks and even just my fish only tanks. My only regret is that I didn't buy one of these earlier. I listened to the few nay Sayers and boy, that was a mistake. For less than $35 my tank looks 100 percent better both water clarity and the hidden equipment and media bags are out of sight. What a perfectly simply design.Thanks for carrying such a great product and thanks Aqua C for making such powerful, compact products that outperform higher costing equipment.Sincerely, Matt P.

    Comments: I had to empty the collection cup everyday during the first week! It brought my declining reef tank back to life in less than a week!

    Comments: I really like my pre-skimmer, it blends in with the tank and does a great job keeping the water clean and hides the mj-1200. Jose from MD was very nice and helpful too

    Comments: The surface skimmer is worth it's weight in gold. With my black background, it is invisble in my 18g nano

    Excellent!

    Comments: Works great on my Remora Pro with mag 3 and they quality is good just as expected from AquaC. I like that they put suction cups on the back of it versus those set screws they use to have.
