It looks as though Deltec is back at it. They are introducing three new models each having an internal and an external version. Additionally, Deltec has developed their own pumps and “spent months getting the right amount of air for the lowest possible power consumption”. These skimmers were purposely designed for larger systems and for aquarists who wanted high performance. This new line was developed to outperform the previous line of skimmers, which were themselves great performing protein skimmers.
Each model offers up a remote drain of skimmer cup, air silencers, micro adjustable settings, high water flow through, an option self cleaning system, and a new color scheme.

These skimmers will release in UK first, but will quickly make their way to the United States. The previous line of skimmers was full of solid performers, and these are expected to raise the bar.
