Heres the pics of my HA problem. These where taken just before I added my scrubber. I had tried EVERYTHING nothing helped. I paid a small fortune for a skimmer that I was told would surely take care of the problem. The HA laughed and kept on growing. My lights where down to 3 hours a day, my fish where only fed a small amount every two to three days, I was doing 10% water changes twice a week. And keep in mind those picks are only about 3 days growth, I would remove about 80% of the HA during my water changes.

These are pics I took today just before my weekly water change. I am feeding daily, my fish are now fat and happy. My scrubber is working beautifully! I am so glad I found out about scrubbers. I am still using my skimmer, but I may take it off line as soon as all the HA is gone. From the looks of things that shouldn't be much longer.

Hi. Can I ask as I am just starting mine, how long to expect. And how long are those pictures taken apart?
