    Oh yeah, I harvested my UAS a few days ago, took video, and weighed it. I just haven't had time to post it. It was actually a pretty good harvest, but still 1/3 to 1/2 of the waterfall...back to the topic...

    UAS more simple, yes. Less effective, yes. IMO UAS is good for a small tank or supplemental filtration on a larger tank. The whole biomass thing really does need to be addressed. My UAS grew most of the algae inside the box. Got a good video of it too, and I just fired up Pinnacle Studio 16 so I can stitch together some nice vids for the future

    This is from tank which already running almost 3 years ago only that was too many algae growing on liverocks. It is not new tank syndrome anymore.
    I played SPS before my friends bought almost of all.

    Yes. In fact I believe that was the target market in the first place - nanos and freshwater tanks where waterfall scrubbers are too bulky or not feasible to build - and they seems to work well in those situations

    hmm I reassume what I read now
    well because my tank abaut 172 gallons with just 4 small fishes in it + various mushroom only,
    I will start to add more fishes from now well might be several hardy sps (cause no light in MT yet) we will see how ATS can do.

    SM, Yellowish appear cause too much light? I use 24/7 using timer already, but why people said it is not strong enaught for light???????
    anyway now I change almost whole pump even for return pump for new one, more flow and more power! I hope its because of it.

    You said too strong, what too strong ? light???
