    What algae appears first when scrubber starts to weaken?

    I realize this is an open ended question, and will vary in each tank, but I would like to know from people running a scrubber awhile.

    Thanks

    More often cleaning glass, from the nutrients in the water.

    Diatoms on plastic parts, from the nutrients in the water.

    Won't appear on rocks right away, though, because the P is absorbed into them.

    My experience has been diatoms, but my tank experiences a lot of flow, an active decorator goby that tunnels, and a strong medium sized clam.

    Curious if others have seen something else...
