    That’s my personal scrubber. Give me a shout this weekend. We’ll get something worked out for you!

    Turbo Aquatics makes the most refined ATS on the market. There is a backlog of orders, but its well worth the wait. I always hated the violet light that could be seen under my tank. The Turbo Aquatics confines all the light inside the growth chamber. I wouldnt buy anything else.

    Our light covers do the same thing. He builds a nice unit but ours work exactly the same. Not like you have to reinvent the wheel to grow algae. Best part about ours is you get a unit that performs just as well if not better, and you don’t have to wait 6-12 months for it.

    Here’s a unit with the light covers on it.

    I just ordered a CW-100 for my 120 gallon. Nothing I've done has worked to control the algae growing on my rocks, so bit the bullet and ordered an ATS. I have an existing Sicce 2.0 laying around, so I hope that'll provide enough flow.

    I the ATS the only filtration you use or do you have a skimmer as well? I heard that ATS's don't require the use of carbon to polish the water.

    Carbon is for pollutants etc. I use skimmer and ATS.
