Good evening.
I have been running the Deltec sc1456 for a few months now and purchased it to replace my Bubble magus nac 7.
The deltec is in a totally different league in my opinion.
Awesome skimmer.

Thanks:

Did it need much fiddling to get it to skim and does it run Quite?

Runs very quiet.
I am a big fiddler and have a bad habit of fiddling with things when I probably shouldn't.  (I should probably be blind if my mums advice when I was a wee lad was true 😂).
It took a good couple of weeks for mine to bed in and work to its best but after that it's works very well.
Once set up it takes very little to no tweaking.
Awesome piece of kit.

This shows how well they can pull out crap.
Pic of cup nearly half full was a little over 24hrs from memory.

I have just taken this pic. Skimmer cup was cleaned and looking brand new last night. I emptied cup an hour or two ago as it was nearly half way. I try and clean cup every other day as doing daily is probably a little OTT.

Brought the skimmer Saturday just gone  it's been running since Sunday and really liking it,it's very quiet compared to the c5, I have to keep checking it, The bacterial bloom I kept getting on my sand when lights ramped up has also started to disappear.

Thanks:
