The new Deltec MCE400 protein skimmer we spotted at AquaRama 2013 has been officially announced with specs and pricing. The black, rectangular skimmer is a smaller version of the Deltec MCE600 and suitable for aquariums up to 400 liters (105 US gallons) and pulls 350 liters of air to create a nice, frothy foam.
The shape allows it to work effectively as a hang-on protein skimmer for tanks and sumps with limited external room. The skimmer pulls water with an internal needlewheel pump that uses just 9W. The overall dimensions are 216 mm x 77 mm with a varying height of 430-490 mm depending on the adjustment of the collection cup. Deltec recommends a minimum height of 600 mm for sump installation.
The new Deltec MCE400 is available now and runs £309.99 (about $462 USD).
