    ATS for 600 liter reef

    While waiting for my SM100 (on order for my Elos 120 mixed reef) I decided to build a DIY scrubber for my new 600 liter reef. I have 2,5 CM2 active area (It looks very long, but thatīs only to keep it in the water and quiet). Lights are 4x36w and 3x24w on the other side due to room constraints, all are CPL tubes. Flow is about 3500 L/H.

    Watch the top of the lights, in case the pipe sprays.

    Will do! They are IP54 rated though. So they are rated for bathroom / outside installation.

    5 days of growth during startup of my new tank. 5 Anthias and 8 Chromis with frequent feedings.

    Three days after cleaning media, the growth is on par with the whole first week. Looks like it's starting up nicely!

    Just wondering. The light brown algae/stuff growing in the beginning is supposed to come right off under running water, right? I barely need to even touch it to rinse it off. Right now I should clean every 4-5 days?
