The Urchin is one of the newer additions to AquaC's line of protein skimmers that utilize spray induction technology. Based on the popular Remora, the Urchin is a sump model that is suitable for small tanks that do not require the waste-removing power of the Larger AquaC EV Series. No plumbing required. Simply connect the pump, drop in the sump and plug in the pump. Unlike most sump skimmers, the Urchin does not need to be raised or tinkered with to maintain the proper water level. For those with larger reef tanks, try the AquaC EV Protein Skimmer.
