    I see SM wrote the post you referring too Nakoma.......
    ATS works, but I would not disconnect my skimmer if one have an ATS on your system, my personal opinion, and you need to make it properly and per size for your system... No use in making a matchbox size or a bedspread size...... All depends on how big your system is, go read up on the links Belinda posted, he does give you sizes as to how to make effective working ones......
    And yes, I also believe it is a good thing, way cheaper than all these additives eg, phoshuard, nitraguard,phosban etc...my 2 cents

    Agree to that i would never disconect my skimmer the biger the better . I see many different types and styles there if i would to make one i would make it total different . I think I would use a algae scrubber as a malty filter instead of just using it as a scrubber , but it sure is just interesting seeing all the different methods people are using i think some of them are funky and looks pretty untidy . I hope some more people has a few ideas they would like to post .
