    I've been on this site for a little while now and I'm finally building a new tank for an older aquarium. I guess I'll do a "quick" recap up to this point. I started with a 55g I got from my sister-in-law around 2006. 55g with some coral life compact Florence and some glo T5s, CPR Skimmer and...

    Maryland Big Algae Turf Scrubber - Foursquare Aquatics APIS-300

    Got nutrients? This scrubber crushes all others. My Nitrates were in the 60s for months (phosphates weren't great either) and this scrubber did an amazing job getting everything under control. The design is genius -- you can slide out the tray for cleaning; and the unit either sits on top of...

    Dr. Tim & Mark Callahan video says refugiums / ATS don't work well for nutrient export

    Key points: Refugiums and algae turf scrubbers can't run nutrients low enough to run an ultra low nutrient system; They make a system phosphate-limited, so you're always going to have residual nitrate; Algal exudates tint the water yellow and require protein skimming; Quote from 5:17: "[a...

    After reading a million posts here, I am trying my hand at a turf scrubber. Cobbling together ideas from other reefers, I decided to convert the skimmer sock area and try to maximize surface area.

    Algae Turf Scrubber LED Lights

    I have a algae turf scrubber body that is build to accommodate the approximately 6"x6" flat LED lights on both sides. I've been looking at a bunch of ACKE brand lights on Amazon, but I am curious as to what others are using for their ATS. I'm strongly leaning toward the 35w version, but it just...

    In this video I discuss growing algae with a focus on the RAIN2 Algae Turf Scrubber. In my opinion, there is no better way to keep nutrients in check, and combat algae in your display than a properly size refugium, algae reactor or algae turf scrubber.

    Dual overflow into algae turf scrubber??
