These bad boys are already moving and we just listed them on the site less than 24 hrs ago and they were also featured on the AquaNerd blog.

Interesting! I like my IceCap turf scrubber (non-PRO model) - it is very effective, but there isn't always a good place to put it. The new in-tank PRO option seems like it will make a good tool even better! Are there any review videos or side-by-side comparison between the old and the new scrubbers?

So I have been running this for around a year . I
Designed the new pro and hang on models this works fantastic and is full plug and play as it the hang on . We have been running that one Jeremy Stlouis’s from the( reef news network podcast) frag tank for over a year he has taken off his skimmer and loves it . I’ll add a few pictures keep in mind we have made a Jew changes from mine to the retail ready version.

It’s quite you can hear it but nothing a cabinet won’t suppress. Also it has gotten pretty silent with age and algae growth. The scrubber has become my absolute favorite tool in my aquarium.

Just an update received the Pro Medium today. After unboxing the scrubber was broken. This did not make me happy. I did not want to got through all the hassle and wait another week or more to get this fixed so I fixed it myself and glued the pieces back togeather. I can hardly tell where the breaks are. After moving my skimmer around to where I had my fuge at this gave me room in my first chamber of the sump to place this in. It was a tight fit but once in no problems. Scrubber can be adjusted height wise and I set it so the bottom of the chamber was just below the water surface. So far it is quiet and I can not hear it at all.
I did take the screen out and roughed it up so the algae would have a better go at catching on to the screen . I then rubbed some turf algae from the former fuge to seed the screen. Time will tell is this works or not. So far only gripe was it came broken.

Wow glad you have yours! Mine is being messed up by fedex. It says thats its in arizona since sunday and is still there. When i called they said they dont have it. I live in nevada btw so i cant go there to pick it up.

Well let me know how you like yours. Hopefully it keeps the nutrients down.

So far this thing is running quiet and flawless. The water falls over the screen evenly allowing for an even algae growth through the whole screen, no hot spots.
