  • Deltec 850 is large for 125gallon?

    I asked Doug in RC sponsor forum about deltec plumbing. and he said

    850model is so large as my new skimmer,and would be wasting my money..

    I have plan to 125gallon SPS tank and he recommand 600model..

    Do you think so?

    Is it wasting my money?

    Vince, I personally like to oversize my skimmer to overskim my reef. One can always feed our fish more if nutrients are too depleted by this technique. It also allows for tank upgrading in the future. Bob

      i agree with Bob, one should not think that a skimer can be too large, heck, if I could of fit a BK 650 in my space, I would have ordered that, and if it was too much, I would feed my fish like I want to...........make em nice and fat..........
      IF IT IS WORTH DOING, TAKE YOUR TIME AND DO IT RIGHT..........

            the AP 850 is NOT to big for a 125gallon tank, IMO anyways

              I agree. Go one size larger at least. Doug does this because the head honcho, David Saxby asks him to sell these skimmers at the right level for your tank. Get the cleaning head unit

                  AP 850 does not come with a cleaning head unit, i think it starts with the AP 702, the newer models, the 850 is a old model,

                    I know the 850 model (851 is new version.maybe) does not come with a
                    CHU. but I do not know why it is possible to install from 702model...


                    Thanks~ Guys.
