AquaC Protein Skimmers
The AquaC EV Series represents the pinnacle in skimmer performance and efficiency. These powerful sump skimmers handle the most demanding applications, while remaining easy to use and maintain. The patented spray injection system results in high water and air flow rates - perfect for heavily stocked tanks and high bioloads.

The AquaC Remora skimmers are designed to hang on the back of your aquarium, taking up as little space as possible. Driven by a powerful spray-injector, these skimmers are sleek, reliable, and nearly maintenance-free.

The AquaC Urchin and Urchin Pro are sump versions of our popular Remora Hang-On skimmers. We've designed these skimmers to sit directly in a sump, and to be as easy to operate as possible. No tuning is necessary, and they are as close to set-and-forget as you'll find.

AquaC Accessories
The Auto Waste Collector is an accessory that works with any of the EV Series skimmers. The AWC acts as an auxiliary waste reservoir that will stop the flow of air from the skimmer once it is full. This stops skimmer production and helps to automate your maintenance schedule.

The Surface Prefilter Accessory sdraws water off the surface of the tank, which increases the skimmer's overall performance. Second, it helps to catch any stray micro bubbles that escape from the skimmer so that they won't enter the tank.

AquaC Remora Hang-on Skimmer AquaC Remora Pro Hang-on Skimmer
The Remora is an efficient hang-on skimmer that does not require the use of a sump. Simply hang it on the back of your tank, plug it in, and you're ready to go. Just like our larger EV models, the Remora is driven by a powerful spray injector and a Maxi Jet 1200 pump.
The Remora Pro is a larger, more powerful version of our popular Remora. This skimmer is capable of handling a 120 gallon fully stocked reef tank. The Pro is available with two different pump options - the Rio 1400 or the Mag Drive 3. If you have a larger tank without a sump, the Remora Pro might be the skimmer for you.

AquaC EV-120 Protein Skimmer AquaC EV-180 Protein Skimmer
The AquaC EV-120 Protein Skimmer is only 18" tall, providing super foam fractionation in a compact package! This protein skimmer should easily fit in your sump and with its raised gate valve (10") you won't need to worry about inconsistent performance due to sump fluctuations. No other protein skimmer on the market can generate this much foam and performance from such a small pump. The AquaC EV-180 Protein Skimmer is a true performer - due to the larger mixing box and baffling design. We encourage the most demanding retail stores, livestock dealers, and advanced hobbyists to try the new EV protein skimmers, you will not be disappointed.
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.
