How do you like your aqua c urchin? i am looking at purchasing one. appear to be rated highly.
One heck of a skimmer. Pulls stuff out consistently every day. I had a Seaclone and a BakPak before this skimmer. They didn't pull half the "gunk" out of the water this thing does. Highly recommended.

They are extremely easy to use. All you do is plug the pump in and let it run. No venturi knobs to fiddle with at all.

were did you buy it?
Actually, I don't remember where I got the darn thing. I have ordered so much stuff over the 'net, it all runs together. I do know that our sponsors, Captive Raised Corals and Captive Reefs carry the skimmer. I am sure either one could help you out.

what type of pump did you use?
I have a Maxijet 1200 on it and wouldn't recommend anything else. You can buy them with either a Rio or Maxijet. The Maxijet costs a little more, but well worth the extra cost.

Let me know if you need anything else.

Peppermint Shrimp:
Crush two tbs minced mint leaves (no stems) with the juice of two limes, two tbs of sugar and a shot of light rum. Marinade eight cleaned jumbo shrimp for two hours in fridge or overnight (overnight is best). Skewer and salt shrimp. Broil or grill over medium high heat until shrimp become opaque (apx. two and a half min per side). Serve with black beans cooked with garlic, green onions, bacon and topped with a slice of lime.

No splashing at all. It returns out the side of the unit and falls to the sump. Its a gentle fall that kinda "rides" down the side of the skimmer.
