SLIP.7 setup for chaeto only (saltwater), overflow fed.

Using the overflow from a nano display, to feed into the top of the SLIP.7 which slips down into the back of nano AIO back compartment sumps.

Not shown is the GEM5 black shade screen inside.

Dimensions:

9 inches tall (23 cm)
3 1/2 inches wide (9 cm)
1 3/4 inches thick (4.5 cm)

Also, a small block of black filter foam could be added at the botton to catch any chaeto particles, and to block all remaining light out of the bottom.

SLIP.7 setup for waterfall only (freshwater or saltwater), bottom fed.

Use a small water pump to feed into the bottom of the SLIP.7 which then slips down into the back of nano AIO back compartment sumps.

Dimensions:
9 inches tall (23 cm)
3 1/2 inches wide (9 cm)
1 3/4 inches thick (4.5 cm)

SLIP.7 setup for chaeto with bubbles, bottom fed



Neat trick for saltwater: Grow chaeto first, then turn on air bubbles to grow slime, GHA, or cyano on the chaeto, then harvest all of it together.

Use a small water pump and air pump for the bottom of the SLIP.7 which then slips down into the back of nano AIO back compartment sumps.

Dimensions:
9 inches tall (23 cm)
3 1/2 inches wide (9 cm)
1 3/4 inches thick (4.5 cm)

The SLIP.7 is the world's first combo scrubber: It's a chaeto reactor, and a waterfall algae scrubber, and a UAS® upflow algae scrubber® built into one. It slips into the back of almost all nano aquarium back compartments

SLIP.7 diagrams and photos have been added...

http://algaescrubber.net/SLIP.7-Instructions.pdf

...for the test model SLIP.7 combo scrubber for small sump compartments. In freshwater it can be configured to be an upflow scrubber (preferred), or a waterfall scrubber, or both at the same time, and for saltwater it can be configured to be a chaeto reactor, or upflow scrubber, or waterfall scrubber, or a combination of these. It is available here:
