Just wondering is there any difference in growing green algae on a screen or in a reactor? I have lots of slimy algae in my reactor. I know it's hard to clean but is it doing any harm growing it in there instead of on a screen?

I've never had an algae scrubber but I'm going 2nd month of running the Arid N18 and I love it! Grows chaeto wonderfully and almost no light spill even with the inner sleeve removed. So far I've harvested once per week but I'm going to try and go 2 weeks this time. Compared to the water changes I'm trying to cut back on, maintenance on this thing is a breeze! I'm very happy with my purchase.
