Algae turf scrubbers?


Recommended Posts

I've had one running for the last year-ish. It took a while for it to get up to speed, but now it makes a huge difference on algae growth in the main tank.

I don't have any current pictures of it on hand, but here's one from when I set it up. 




I ended up cutting a little over half off the screen, and it's been growing great ever since. I've got a pair of red led grow lights with light diffusers on them (regular, not eggcrate) pointing at the main faces.


It does a good job of pulling most of the phosphates out of my tank, and definitely helps with the water change intervals, but it's not quite as amazing as some people on the internet would have you believe.
