Can you share your design?

What works as for the screen, I see they are talking about plastic canvas, is this available in Cape Town?

Looking at making a basic in sump scrubber

I used the following

-Egg crate cut to size of screen
-80% shade cloth which is cable tied to the egg crate
- Airstone the length of the screen
- 11 x 1 watt leds (9red and 2 blue)
- Resun airpump

And a suction cup to secure the screen at the top.

If you go through my tank thread there should be a few photos of it

Just used it as is. There is more than enough space for the roots to take hold on

I don't think I'll ever change from it. It's cheap to operate, easy to maintain and not a lot can go wrong if you are away from home
