I just went back and watched this again - this is a nice overview of the three #IceCap algae scrubbers and is useful for understanding how any scrubber works.

Thank you very much for watching! Most of our staff are getting on board the scrubber or cheato reactor trains these days!

It is easy to see why, but how do I pick between the two? They both seem like excellent products and effective approaches.

Well, my mindset was I already had turf algae in my tank, so growing it in a scrubber instead of my display seemed like the way to go. Although I do also grow chaeto in a corner area of my tank. The growth has slowed since I started running the scrubber a month ago.
