    Re: Coming Soon: Good news for nano owners who want scrubbers

    If you have a nano, and have not been able to easily put a scrubber below or above it, this might work for you.

    You probably have all the parts you need.

    Well, since 660nm LEDs are doing a good job, and also after looking at a few hundred more scrubber builds, it looks like by this time next year nothing will be related to what they are today. The new versions next year will make good use of LEDs, but even with fluorescents they will be much easier to build, so nobody should have to go without, especially nano's. One version is even for pico's, and could be made in a few minutes or sold at retail for under $20. So if you are designing one of any size, you might want to wait to see the new ones.

    Is this something that is being geared more towards nano/smaller tanks? If so do you have plans to translate it to a large scale setup?

    The designs are buildable to any size you want. My first attempts however will be for smaller ones.

    Re: Coming Soon: Algae Scrubber II

    I'm very interested in this project. I've been trying to shoehorn a DIY scrubber in my sump for some time now. No luck yet. I want to use ZEO and a scrubber next to eachother. So a smaller design would be really great. Seeing how the suncorals appreciate scrubbers won me over very quickly. It adds something to the watercolumn which other systems don't.

    Santamonica, I followed your thread on the ZEO-forum with great interest. It's very unfair how the rusty Zeoheads discarded your very innovating information.

    Glad you like the info. Yes the new versions(s) will fit anywhere, depending on how good you want it to look. Not needing a sump was the primary need for the new design, which makes it nano friendly.

    Remember that zeo/etc will probably compete with the scrubber, unless you mean just the bacteria additives
