    Hey guys, I am looking for a small footprint skimmer to use in my 10 gallon sump. the chamber I have for the skimmer is 6"x10", and I'd like something a little smaller so it isn't cramped in there. I came across the AquaC Urchin and it looks promising, but I haven't been able to find much...

    Hey everyone, I have had an AquaC Urchin skimmer for a few months now, and I've never really gotten it to skim anything. I have it in a 20g long sump running with a MJ1200 pump. I've adjusted the heck out of the injector screw and it still doesn't really skim anything. I'll adjust the screw...

    I have a used AquaC Urchin with a mj1200 for sale or trade. I used it on my tank in North Dakota and it worked great. It also has the drain fitting. When I moved, somehow the black washer/seal that goes around the collection cup broke, but this would be an easy fix I would think. The only...

    Hi everyone. I just moved here from Bismarck, ND. Before I moved I made the hard decision to sell my tank and most of my livestock. It made moving a lot easier, but putting that much work (and money!) into something is hard to just let go for really cheap. I did send a few things to a friend...

    the 20g tank had a crash on Friday night - either the flatworms died and caused the skimmer to overflow into the sump or vice versa... I found out about it at 1:30AM (Saturday) and performed a major water change... the anemone, and two clowns didn't look good.. didn't see the blenny... xenia...

    I have a 70 gallon tank with a 15 gallon sump that I will be setting up soon. The sump has 3 chambers and I want to put a protein skimmer in the first, and a refugium in the second. The 3rd feeds the return pump. The problem is that the first chamber of the sump has a 10.5 x 6 inch footprint...

    My rocks, sand, and glass have all been pristine (since the cycle finally completed) for 6 months and now all of a sudden I am getting lots of algae and diatoms and possibly cyano (I see lots of bubbles). I am using RO/DI water and the TDS meter shows it at 0 TDS. My water tests have been...

    I just took down my 46 gallon bowfront. I'm not jumping out of the hobby: I just consolidated a little to ease the maintenance. So - I've got an All-Glass 46-gallon bowfront tank and stand for sale. The tank and stand have black trim. The tank has been drilled in the back (bottom is...

    If I were to swap out the MJ1200 on my AquaC Urchin protein skimmer for a more powerful pump, does anyone have a guess on whether or not that would increase the performance of the skimmer?

    I am having a terrible time with nitrates... My ammonia is 0, nitrites are 0, but nitrates are over 100! I've done massive water changes every other day for over a week and they remain over 100 even after a change... I'm using dionized water bought from the store... I have live rock and sand...

    First off, as many of you know, this is my first aquarium. Since I started setting it up in January, I have been bitten pretty hard by the reef bug and I have grown very attached to my reef inhabitants. I am extremely cognizant of trying to make sure that they are living in a comfortable...

    My wonderful parents bought me a AquaC nano remora for my 'cube. It is working as expected (beginning to gather some foam after 24hours!) but is louder than all get out! The tank is in my bedroom and I had gotten used to the quiet whirr of the pumps and the occasional cycle of the chiller. The...

    Ok, the situation. I have a new office and am in the process of moving in an fixing it up. There is one wall that is bare and begging for a reef tank :rolleyes: . So I am starting my designing plans early. I'm thinking in the neighborhood of a 29 or 40L. Since this is at my office, I am...
