Remora Pro noise

I installed today my Remora Pro skimmer. My question is does the spray noise stay the same or does it get more quiet as it breaks in?
Thanks

it won't get much quieter. venturi action skimmers are just noisy like that.

Hmmm... I didn't think the Aqua C Remora Pro was venturi... isn't it spray injection?

I had a venturi and the thing was LOUD... went with my Euro-reef with needle-wheel design and I can't hear it. :P

did you get the rio pump or the mag 3? The mag 3 is alot quieter. It quiets over time but the mag will always be quieter.

It's not a venturi.

I recently bought the same skimmer... maybe 7 days old... it's quieting down a bit, but will never be silent.

Yeah the unit is a bit noisy and I find myself having to turn up the TV volume a bit to hear it over the remora pro. The noise is not much of an issue to me though, especially since this is a truly remarkable skimmer. I have the mag 3 pump on it and find myself emptying a full cup of murky skimmate a day. I can not believe the skimmate this thing produces, it is remarkable. Plus it keeps my tank water sparkly clean.

Can I skim only at night? Must it be 24 hrs / day?

Good question. Can you use it intermittently? I don't like the noise and me and my fish hate the bubbles.
