    what is the difference between the subject models?

    Which would be recommended for a Red Sea Reefer 250?

    Thank you

    Hi there

    Thanks a lot for the post

    The only difference between the two is the pump.


    The SCA is an AC skimmer and the SC is a DC powered


    Performance is essentially the same. I've found it really comes down to a matter of preference.


    Either model would be a great fit on the Red Sea.


    Let me know if you have any other questions at all


    Thanks a lot!

    Thanks for the quick reply. I also noticed they have a different footprint per details on the website

    Shoot actually that's my bad. The footprint info for the SCA On the site I'll have to update. That was the older sc1350 with a little smaller base. I totally overlooked that when i added the SCA to the site. Both the SCA and SC 1351 have the same size base and foot print now. Sorry for any confusion on that on but I'm glad you mentioned it.

    So I'm confused. What is the foot print dimension? Dimensions (LxWxH) / 9.8 x 5.5 x 20"? I'm looking for small footprint so it makes a difference to me. Thanks

    Ok I am really sorry about that. There was a skimmer that came out before the SCA1351 called the sc1350. When Deltec discontinued the 1350 about a year ago, I added the new SCA to the site in the place of the 1350. I just swapped photos essentially and i did not change the text including the old footprint of the SC1350, if you're following me.

    The new SCA1351 and the SC1351 have the same base, and also the same footprint of (LxWxH) / 9.8 x 5.5 x 20". The only difference between the two is the pump. Does that help clarify it a little?

    Please let me know if you have any other questions at all.

    Hi Adam,

    Not to thread jack, but okay this is a thread jack...

    What Deltec would suit my purpose? I have a 93 G cube with a Trigger systems cube sump that has a max capacity of 24.3 gallons... This will be rather heavily stocked fish/sps tank

    Hi there
    Not at all man. Thanks a lot for the post The 1351 would be sufficient for sure, or you could up size to the 1455 or 1456. A little oversized but you could dial the DC version back a little if it seemed like it was a little too much. either would be a great choice

    Please let me know if you have any other questions at all.

    Hey Adam,
    So what are the ups and downside of an AC pump vs a DC pump. I think maybe one can dial back the output?
    Thanks,
    Howard

    Also, think I've read that one lasts longer but not sure which one.

    I personally prefer the AC line one over DC. The pump has proven to be a bit more reliable. Less parts and less "stuff". There may be rare occasion that one might want to dial it down a little but I don't think its essential in any way. With the ac, you just plug it ion, and let it do it's thing.

    Ditto ... in fact, my biggest problems have had to do with _too_much_ foam & skimmate - my 1455 keeps blowing its lid off!

    I have the SCA 1351 and it is a fantastic skimmer.
