And for reference, that 100 grams of (WET) Algae was a WEEKLY HARVEST!!Now that is some serious scrubbing!
It peaked at 127 Grams per week.
I think my Tank's Rocks were leaching out nutrients/Phosphates, thus the spurred activity.
Then it slowed down, and eventually my scrubber STOPPED!!
That's the beauty of a Algae Scrubber, it self regulates based on water column load.
On the downside....Algae needs more than Nitrates/Phosphate to build up that Mass.
I assume it was also stripping macro/micro elements.
At the time I wasn't doing daily water changes, so I got worried about the needed elements (stripping)
Thus why I like using my ATS for Macro Algae (Cheato).
And here is Proof I think it was some Kind of Macro Algae.
A thicker than Hair Algae. Jello like consistancy. HERE IS A CLOSEUP ON THE SCREEN
Another Closeup of the Macro that grew onto a stick in the Scrubber.
