The AquaC line of ‘spray injected’ protein skimmers is a complete lineage of froth fractionators that carved their very own path within the reef aquarium passion, and apparently had been by no means actually copied or imitated. As soon as the darling of the reef aquarium passion once they had been launched within the late 90s, there’s no good motive that the AquaC Remora, Urchin or EV-series skimmers ought to have develop into so unusual.
Fortunately, the hobbyists-at-heart of Cobalt Aquatics noticed the potential of the AquaC protein skimmer fashions they usually’ve been working to rebuild the model from the bottom up for almost two years. This previous MACNA in Orlando we witnessed the primary ‘new’ AquaC Remora, the king of hang-on skimmers, and EV-120 we’ve seen in a few years, they usually gave the impression to be working higher than we even remembered.
For the primary ‘reunion tour’ Cobalt Aquatics is kicking it off with the Remora and EV fashions as genuine to the originals as potential, with the sort of sensible refinements to each the efficiency and manufacture/meeting the place it is sensible. We’re unsure how shut the 2019 crop of AquaC skimmers will get to together with a number of the enhancements we noticed within the Remora S – notably that neoprene muffler – however one factor that may’t be ignored is how properly the 2 models had been acting on Cobalt’s MACNA show tanks.
The final time we noticed the AquaC Remora it was being powered by a Cobalt MJ1200 pump however the brand new and improved inside design truly works greatest with the Mini MJ 606 which sips a minuscule 6 watts of energy! The primary new batch of AquaC skimmers are presently in manufacturing and ought to be launching by the tip of the 12 months for a worth akin to their earlier price.
