I'm looking into buying a curve 7, but I need to know if it will fit. I've looked everywhere for the dimensions of the cup but can't find them. Can someone who has a curve 7 please measure the height of the cup and let me know please?

Thanks,
Sheldon

Sorry I worded that wrong, The skimmer will fit. I'm looking for the height of just the cup. I'm going to have to take the sump partially out to get the skimmer in, but I need to be able to get the cup out for cleaning. I only have 6" clearance.

Ah! That can be a problem :) You'll need someone to measure.

Yes:)

I was at concept the other day and measured the curve 5 which is 5.5". But I'd like to go with the 7 if i can get the cup in and out.

I have a BM Hero 180S which should be the same as the curve 7 dimensions, the cup is 6.5"

Am I missing something here? If the skimmer fits, you should only have to lift the cup up about 1" to be able to remove it.

Yup, missing something :) He's concerned whether the cup fits between sump edge and stand to be able to remove it from the tank for cleaning.

Doesn't the 20.8" height already include the cup?

Yes, but skimmer is going into sump, then sump into stand. The goal is make sure the cup by itself is removable afterwards.

My sump is too tall. There's lots of room (height) for the skimmer but I won't be able to get the cup out, there's only 6" between the top of the sump and the stand.

Sump is 20" tall
And 26" tall opening

That's a big sump, is it that big on all sides?

The cup on the BM curve 7 is 6.5 high from bottom of neck insert to top with lid on and 6.25 across, I just measured mine.

Thank-you.

So either I need a shorter sump or I'm getting the curve 5...
