to aqua c remora users

my remora is a murderer! first, a clown awhile back, but i thought that maybe it was unhealthy to get stuck in there (the intake of the pump). 2nd, a chromis. 3rd, a peppermint shrimp. more my fault for not covering it up with a screen or spnoge after the first time. it is now covered. rip fishies.

Any pump can be a fish killer lol. Do you have a moonlight? If you dont, maybe your livestocks swam blindly right to the pump at night.

My newly aquired clownfish also got sucked into the intake and survived. I got home and notived an orange thing in the intake. it took me 5 seconds to realize it was a fish and I unplugged it.

Ever since, he has stayed away from the skimmer.

Try prefilter sponges then. I've never had problem with my fish getting sucked up by pumps. I think my fish are smart

im glad he survived. ive got a peice of sponge in there. im not taking anymore chances, lol. i wanna get the preskimmer box too. i dont have any jumpers so hopefully they wont get in there. im trying to get a sump going to get all the equipment out of the main, so i really dont want prefilter sponges, i dont like the look of them and i dont want to worry about cleaning them and such.

vsnsofadrgn, just an FYI. I have an AquaC Remora w/ a prefilter box. There are two problems that im having with the box:

1. Too big :/ I had to rearrange alot of LR to put it in
2. If your water level gets too low, the pump will suck air, burn up and start a fire 0.o So you gotta do some mods to the box before you put it in the tank for safety

HTH

I'm not having a good time with mine either. I got the prefilter box/surface skimmer thingy attachment, but when the water gets just little bit low, it's noisy as heck. I may be switching back to my Bak Pak for my 29g.
