    jnad nano scrubber 4

    Hello!

    My latest nano scrubber is nearly ready, i just is going to give the clear scrubber box a paint job beafore it is ready to run.

    The scrubber is set up to filtering 1 cube a day screen 7,5cm x 12 cm
    Bulbs is 2x11W Osram 2500K , it is really easy to convert this lightning to led if wanted.

    I have more details later, and here is some preview pictures beafore painting:

    Hello!

    Thanks for the positive feedback SM.

    The box is now ready painted, and i probably starting the scrubber today or tomorrow.

    What amount of light time (hours) would you recommend to start with for this setup, the standard 18 hours on, or should i run the bulbs shorter beacuse using 11W bulbs?

    I like it!!! I am glad I held off on making my new scrubber for my 10G nano. I am going to use your concept for my 10G build here in the near future.

    You might want to wait even a bit longer than that, since the new scrubber version in 2012 will be a snap to diy and install in a nano, and won't require a sump below or a drain-down on top. And you already have the parts.

    I still have another 10G nano waiting for that one!! It just has a cheesy scrubber on it now, its a hang on back unit with a piece of plexi glued to the overflow part so the water runs over the plexi that has a screen (2.75"x6") affixed to it and uses the hood light to power the growth. It works good for this tank as its used to grow my pods for my mandarin. I just throw in a couple pieces of shrimp in every two days or so with a little dose of phytoplankton.

    Hello!

    Kerry:

    I think this type of scrubber would be ideal for led ligts, you will get better coverage of the screen. The light source area would be more the same as the screen with leds than using bulbs.

    SM:

    Should i start with lights on half hours beacuse of using 11W bulbs or should i start with 18 hours on and after a while reduce the light hours?

    Will your new scrubber consept be best only for nanos or is it also going to replace the SM100 types of scrubbers?

    If you have room for a scrubber on top or under the aquarium will the standard on top or below aquarium scrubbers still be the most effective or will the new scrubber outperforme the standard scrubbers?

    Yes, I was going to do LED for it as that is what it is now.

    Try 18 hours.

    The new one will probably replace it on many tanks, and certainly on all nano's.

    Hello!

    The scrubber is now running on my tank. It seems to run wery nicely, even flow over the screen and great light. There is no micro bubbles or noise from the outlet, but there are some resonance sound from the scrubber, but i think it will easely be fixed.

    Here are a picure of the scrubber ready to go:
