Can I get some ATS recommendations? I've got a 50g cube with limited space above my sump. I could use a unit that fits in the stand in front of the sump or something like a UAS. Just curious what you guys recommend.

I installed a Surf 4X three weeks ago on a new 150 gallon. 10 fish which I feed four times a day. It just floats on the water surface in my sump next to the skimmer. I elected to do this instead of a refugium. So far I’m happy with growth. Should be very easy to harvest when the time comes. Just lift lid and grab a hand full. That’s it. Here’s the first three weeks of growth.

IMHO I think that the best ATS is a DIY ATS…..every tank has his own size…
Except that you MIGHT be overestimating my DIY skills. ;Smuggrin

I have used Upflow ATS in the past with good results. supper thin profile easy to make.

the new Ice cap do look great. turbo aquatics are amaizing I hear I was on the list for a year over covid lots of delays due to supply chain issues. so I just went woth a fuge light.

I do think ATS are more filtration power per Sq inch
