    Description
    The Urchin and Urchin Pro are sump versions of our popular Remora Hang-On skimmers. We've designed these compact skimmers to sit directly in a sump, and to be as easy to operate as possible. No tuning is necessary, and they are as close to set-and-forget as you'll find. There aren't many skimmers with such a small footprint with this level of performance.

    The Urchin and Urchin Pro are built from translucent gray acrylic to inhibit the growth of algae and marine organisms. Includes nylon cleaning brush to clean out the spray injector, through an access screw, and an EPDM o-ring for collection cup adjustment. The pump is attached to the skimmer via a section of flexible hose. The pump can be moved into any position you choose. The collection cup is removed from the skimmer by pulling it up and out of the body. Please check that you have the required 23" of vertical clearance under you stand if you are considering the Urchin and 26-1/2" of vertical clearance under you stand if you are considering the Urchin Pro. The skimmer can be ordered with an optional collection drain fitting.

    AquaC Urchin-S Hang-On Protein Skimmer Information The Urchin-S features a redesigned High-Flow Spray Injector that increases air and water flow. The new injector also produces smaller air bubbles that boosts performance higher than ever before. The newly redesigned skimmer includes a taller collection cup, doubling the capacity, with a larger foam tower to handle the extra foam production. A neoprene noise muffler, specially designed to fit around the injector, is included to reduce noise. Improved tank-mount hardware is also included.

    Factory testing at Aqua C suggests a 30% increase in skimming performance!

    Information
    The revolutionary AquaC protein skimmers do not use venturis, downdraft tubes, or air pumps; they employ the patented "Spray Injection System." This innovation allows the protein skimmer to efficiently draw in much more air than any other of the top protein skimmers. This coupled with the superiorly designed compact reaction chamber yields results that will literally blow the waste out of your water.

    Unlike previous forms of skimming, the patented Aqua C spray injection method enables huge amounts of air and water to be processed with a relatively small pump. Although it is a simple process, there is still some confusion as to how the spray injector works.

    Most other forms of protein skimming rely on special valves or media to generate the air flow, and these parts quickly become clogged with salt, dust, or even mineral deposits. The AquaC spray injector is a relatively large nozzle that resists clogging.

    Features:
    •The Urchin-S is built from translucent gray acrylic to inhibit the growth of algae and marine organisms.
    •The skimmer now includes a collection drain fitting as a standard feature.
