The Urchin is a compact sump skimmer that is designed on our popular Remora Hang-On. These skimmers share the same internal structure and are identical in terms of performance. The Urchin is designed to sit inside of a sump, and is powered by a Cobalt 1200. There aren't many skimmers with such a small footprint with this level of performance.

The collection cup is removed from the skimmer by pulling it up and out of the body. Please check that you have the required 23" of vertical clearance under you stand if you are considering the Urchin.
