    $4,000 skimmer

    @swoof

    https://reefbuilders.com/2018/12/06/...yzz-a200-pump/

    The Deltec 7i is a new hot rod protein skimmer using the closest thing we have to a supercar water pump, the Abyzz. This particular needle wheel skimmer body sports all black accents to match the Abyzz A200, even the normally orange power cord has been made black to complete the ‘murdered out’ look.
    Besides the use of the spendy Abyzz A200 water pump Deltec played it pretty safe with the rest of the design; the collection cup, diffuser plate and water level control will all be very familiar to current users of the Deltec protein skimmer line.

    I don't do salt, so why tag me in a protein skimmer? I don't use them on my fresh water tanks.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA

    I can't imagine spending $4k on a skimmer. The "hot rod" of skimmers indeed! That's nuts.

    Like making an Eheim canister with 'fancy' black plastic, a bigger pump, and charging a grand or two for it.
