Noisy Remora

The aquac remora is getting pretty noisy in the intake area, inside, and making tons of microbubbles in my tank. It is skimming like crazy though. Is this noise normal? I definetly can't reach that intake area anyhow... Thanks!

Reduce the amount of flow to the skimmer -- airbubbles mean you're out of proper adjustment. You should still be getting decent flow, but without the microbubbles.

Skimmers are noisy.. most people I know who can't handle the noise have them setup to opposite timers to the lights so they skim only at night.

It's still a relatively new skimmer. I never thought my Remora was excessively loud, but FWIW it did quiet down some w/ time. Reducing the amount of flow w/ a Remora really isn't an option. It's designed to perform "as is"-and works quite well that way. Did you try cleaning the injector w/ the included brush? HTH
