anyone with a AquaC Urchin .. ?

this prolly should be in the hardware forum but i was not sure..

i was thinking about using one in my sump, a AquaC Urchin in sump skimmer..

i put the baffles in already after getting my mag5 pump and getting the "footprint" dimensions from their webpage { for the aquac } .. but my question is, can anyone tell me the real dimensions of this.. i know the footprint is gonna be about the size, but does anything stick out far or...?

reason im asking is, i ran pvc pipe all up for my pump but i have not used cement on them yet because i didnt want to commit to it and learn there is gonia be a big outlet sticking out or something that might be in the way.. and then i might need to reposition a pipe or change something from facing left to right... and then be sorry :) {if this is making sense lol }

oh and, did you choose the maxi1200 or rio800 with it? { off their webpage they sell with either so ..wondering }

sincerely - a nub ~ kukki !

Is it the urchin pro? I have the urchin pro and that skimmer came with a pump. Mine was suppose to come with a RIO 1200 but the LFS upgraded the pump to a mag 3. The demensions they give are accurate on mine. AWESOME skimmers im very happy with mine! HTH

I also have the Urchin Pro. The dimensions are accurate, but do keep in mind that you need room to put that pump next to the skimmer as well. It's not a huge pump if you are using the MJ1200, but it will also take up some room.

I have an Urchin with MJ1200
I wasn't happy with it and now have the Coralife Super Skimmer 220...

now that skimmer rocks...the Urchin had a very wet skimmate and didn't do a very good job...now I put on the SS and it's pulling stuff out the Urchin never could

i would highly suggest the MJ1200, a much more reliable pump than the Rio.
