    So I been working on my internal upflow algae scrubber for my 220G. It is not done yet, but I have made some progress. It will be painted black when I am finished, but for pictures it's easier when it's clear.
    Drilled holes across the bottom for water flow inside the unit. Found some nylon screw so I drilled and mounted the bubble bar to the unit.
    I just have to mount the screen into the unit and it will be ready to go.

    After I have painted it black you will not see the slightly melted plexi with bubbles in it....

    The best bubble bars that I have found are the cheap Petco bubble bars. They come in 14" 18".

    I you buy their inline check valve/air filter it keeps the dirt out of the bubble bar for longer life. (Inside it has cotton like material that catches debris)

    I ordered the EcoPlus Commercial Air Pump 5 $70.47 with tax for this unit. 120v 80Watts 4.2 PSI, 3/8" ID Tube size, Single Outlet 88 Liter/min (3.11 CFM)
