The Deltec MCE600 is the ultimate hang on skimmer now suitable for aquariums up to 875Ltrs (192 gallons) and since its introduction at the end of 2003 has taken the market by storm.

The MCE600 is now fitted with a full size pinwheel and generates 400 lts of air at the pump like the TS1250.

Its design gives it the flexibility to hang on almost any brand of aquarium or for it to be used inside or hanging on the outside of a sump.

There is a chamber built into the skimmer where media such as RowaPhos or carbon can be used in a sock or bag and there is even an optional media box available.

The performance is as you would expect from any Deltec skimmer, drawing in 300lts of air per hour for maximum waste removal.

The Deltec philosophy is that for every 1000 Ltrs of water in the aquarium that you require 400 - 500 Ltrs of air per hour to achieve efficient skimming. This makes the MCE600 skimmer suitable for 875 Ltrs (192 u.k gallons) for a normally stocked reef aquarium or 563 Ltrs (124 uk gallons) for a heavily stocked fish only system.

From testing that we have carried out we have found that Deltec skimmers produce at least 2 - 4 times the air volume used on most competitors skimmers which are claimed to be suitable for comparable water volumes.

    Lovely bit of equipment! amazed on how much this skims from the frist day of being, and very easy to install and use and clean. Also the guys from the store are very helpful and managed to find one for me when most stores didn't even had one in store!
