The Deltec SC1350 is a recently outed budget protein skimmer which delivers an incredible amount of performance for the price. The internal sc1350 skimmer from Deltec measures in at 6.4 x 7 inches in footprint and just 20 inches tall. The Deltec SC1350 Economy skimmer is rated for tanks between 65 and 100 gallons while operating in a water level between six and ten inches deep. The super modified Aquabee UP pump powering this Deltec SC1350 pulls 450 lph of air while drawing only 9 watts and it does so silently. Better yet, this prototype SC1350 is Deltec’s newest attempt at building a more economical skimmer with this model intended to retail for under $300.
