    Yup, nothing better than an APF600, in my mind the king of all skimmers.

    I find this skimmer to be very good the head of foam the apf 600 makes is insane mine is plumed strait into the over flow so it misses. Nothing no t off at all

    @trad I think we might have both of those. Will get back to you if NJ has any of these available. These skimmers are very difficult to get secondhand due to their performance excellence.

    Hi All. I'm looking for the rubber bush that fits on the impeller shaft for a DCS600 Pump that is fitted to my Deltec APF 600 skimmer.

    Jzk Ridwaan.
    I'll try that. Should I glue it onto the shaft?

    So I have had this deltec ap600 sitting in my spare parts container for 6 years now after getting it with a cracked R100 sump I bought in Cape Town off gumtree that I fixed and turned into a fresh water sump for my Discus at the time.
    I am wanting now to install in on my marine tank but as I have read online it is a external skimmer and I have on place under my tank for it to sit next to the sump as my sump takes up the entire area, so my question is can I run it in the sump standing in the water?
    I have seen on this thread that it looks like some of you are doing so I just want to make sure that the aqua bee is water proof and able to be in water?

    This skimmer can be external or inside the sump.

    The skimmer outlet, what does that part look like? Most likely it would be a lot easier to install inside a sump, than to try to get the outlet flow into your sump.
