Deltec MC500 Skimmer
The Deltec MC500 Internal Skimmer is the ideal solution when you want to keep everything inside the aquarium or as a compact sump skimmer
Now also available as a DC controllable version , the MC501
The MC500 is now fitted with a full size pinwheel and generates 350-400 lts of air at the pump like the TS1250.
Now suitable for aquariums from 450-650 lts (100-140 UK G) stocking
When starting up in marine fish keeping many people opt for a budget low efficiency skimmer which gets thrown away after 6 months or when they upgrade the size of their systems. You should therefore keep in mind that this skimmer will not only be suitable for a 50 gallon aquarium but can be used in systems up to 120 gallons. This makes much more financial sense than spending up to 2 thirds of the Deltec price or more on the budget skimmer and then throwing it away when you move up to your next tank.
Tank mounted Installation.
The MC500 fits inside the aquarium against either the back or side wall and normally can be fitted using the bracket supplied, (either clear front face or black back face forwards). As long as the water level does not exceed the maximum shown on the body then the unit will operate.
Sump Mounted Installation
The skimmer can be used in any sump as long as the water depth is greater than 125mm and does not exceed the max level shown on the body. An adjustable weir plate is provided which raises the water level to the correct height for any depth of water.
