Been reading alot on algae scrubbers and want to build one for my new 800 gallon reef tank.
From what i've read, it seems like some people prefer the algae scrubber compared to a protein skimmer for De-nitrifying and lowering phos.
My display tank is on the main floor, and my sump is in the basement.
I've got dual built in overflows with a total of 4x 1.5" PVC pipes going into the sump.
My return pump is going at about 5000gph.
I was hoping to gravity feed the algae scrubber and have all of my flow going through them.
