    I've been using this for some time with good results. Very easy to make. Feel free to ask any questions.

    Also look here to get a better understanding of scrubbers. The FAQ section is very good. Algae Scrubbers • Index page

    They work very well but do proper research to get the best design light must be close and if there is away it can get direct sunlight it will work even better!
