Aqua C Remora Pro

Just upgraded my skimmer to the Remora Pro w/ mag 3 pump. I know there is a break in period but honestly do the micro bubbles completley go away once the skimmer is broken in?

Took mine a while to go away. But will eventually clear up.

Thanks for the replies. The skimmer works great but hate looking at those bubbles. I'll give it some more time. Another question... is the collection cup suppose to sit flush in the unit? Mine is somewhat crooked, almost like the collection cup doesn't filt properly

I'm a little confused...

The collection cup on mine is supported by the black o-ring that goes around the clear box. If it sits crooked, then I just adjust that side of the o-ring until it sits right. Also, the top of the cup shouldn't sit flush with anything. It can't do down to the level of the skimmer body because it just physically can't. I think I'm missing what you're saying, but can't figure out what.

If you're talking about the top cover to the collection cup, mine is a little warped and doesn't sit flat, but it's not very noticeable. Maybe that's what you mean?

Thanks, I meant the cup itself not the cover for the cup... but you did answer my question. Thanks... now only if those bubbles would go away

The bubbles in mine went away after a break in period as well and now the skimmer skims like there is no tomorrow.

after almost 2 weeks skimmer is still pouring micro-bubbles into the tank . The other thing is that it seems I am getting a really wet foam as my collection cup fills up quick with cloudy water, is this also part of the break in period? To my knowledge there is really no adjustments that can be made to this skimmer.

You can adjust the collection cup using the rubber ring that is around the collection cup. If you move the rubber ring lower so that the collection cup sits up higher, it will not collect as much wet foam. Usually you need to leave it up a little higher during the break in period because it will collect too wet.

As for the bubbles, I forget how long my remora took to finally stop pushing out microbubble, but it did eventually. I say if you wait a little longer they should, hopefully, go away.
