I put my Remora Pro on yesterday and within 10 min it was spitting foam up to the top- I raised the cup. Today there is foam inside but not up to the cup. I also expect itwill be a good one.

My remora has been up and running since Monday and I have had very little skim. Water params are great, but it does seem like break in is taking a bit longer. I guess I should be happy that there isn't a bunch of waste in my tank

Really. Loud compared to what? My seaclone was a frean'n freight train compared to the remora.

I am looking forward to going home and seeing some good foam. Man, that sounded weird.
