    I've tried this for about 6 months now, and this is all growth I got... Must say I'm a bit disappointed of the growth (lack of) in this floating-type scrubber... I think I'm about to give up the whole scrubber idea now...

    Whole scrubber. (I've concentrated the bubbles to the left chamber).

    Pods are probably keeping the growth from growing at the bottom. And, the dark turf is stopping green hare from attaching at the top.

    Try this: Take to the sink and scrub/scrape away all the dark. This will open up the textures for attachment, and the FW will kill the pods,

    Giving the Belgian Blue scrubber another try... Getting a bit of growth in the chambers this time... (Middle chamber has a LED-failure that currently impacts growth)
