Bak Pak II CPR

For those who have the Bak Pak II CPR http://www.thatpetplace.com/Products.../Itemdy00.aspx can you guys please post the dimensions? I only have 3 inches from the back of my tank to the wall...

Should have thought of that problem prior to filling the tank with water. I don't think there is anyway I can move the tank any further out.

The minimum safe bet for the space behind your tank need at least 5 inches, the skimmer body already 3 inches plus the intake/output will required extra space.
Goodluck.

Not to be rude or anything but is this from experience? I don't think I have a way of moving the tank without removing like 3/4 of the water. It does weigh 500+ lbs.

To be on the safe side, I'd move it out as far as I could, maybe 4in?
Just a thought for any future add ons...

I have left 5 inches on the back of my tank and I'm glad I did, on tuesday a Aqua C Remora is being delivered...

How does the Remora C compare to the Bak Pak II? What made you decide to pick up the Remora over the Pak Pak II? Also where, and how much did you pick up the Remora C? My tank has been up for nearly a month and I think its time to skim the water! Thanks in advance

Remoras are the best skimmer of this design IMO. Though it is only my opinion I have never had or used a bakpak, but I have seem them in action and I have seen and use a number of Aqua C remora/urchin skimmers. The remora generally runs around $160 with a better pump than the rio (maxijet1200), add the collection overflow and you have one heckova machine. Check our sponsors. I know both Logan and Darin (captiveraised corals and caprivereefs respectfully) both carry them.

HTH,

I was just measure the space behind of the skimmer as I has one right by me, since only you will be worry about is the backspace behind the tank, that why I said only the back side But if I was you, I'll move the tank at least 5" from the wall as a safe bet. As when you hook up the skimmer, if the body of the skimmer is right close to the tank, like the space between them is a hair thick, then 3" will put, but any thing other than that not gonna do it
