    Is it advisable to have an ATS and macro algae?

    As far as I have read the ATS is a much better exporter, so the lights would be of better use on a bigger ATS.

    You also have to have the light close to the ATS, So the slope would take it further from the light.

    this is exactly how iv got mine set up, works like a charm, the water flows aver my dsb baffles and then over the ATS and into the uplift chamber with my spotlights suspended from under my cabinet, only annpying thing is when the water evaps and the level in the last chamber drops makes loud trickling noise but thats not a problem
