Deltec MC500 Internal/Sump Skimmer

The Deltec MC500 Internal Skimmer is the ideal solution whether you want to keep it inside the aquarium or as a compact sump skimmer in a cabinet. A real investment, this skimmer will grow with your aquarium and should you change to a larger tank, the MC500 will be more than adequate - as it is suitable for tanks of up to 500 litres.

The MC500 is now fitted with a full size pinwheel and generates 350-400 litres of air at the pump like the TS1250.

It fits neatly inside the aquarium against either the back or side and can be fitted using the bracket supplied, (either clear front face or black back face forwards). Just make sure the water doesn't exceed the level stated for continuous operation.

The skimmer can be used externally in a 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.

The MC500 will not fit easily on the new Vision 450. Deltec therefore recommend the MCE600 skimmer with the return flowing into the corner filter box.
