    Looks like I am getting cyano in my scrubbers. Probably high nutrients in the tank still

    Do you have some gha that you can put in there and see what happens?

    Another fun thing to try... maybe dose some vinegar for a few weeks.

    I have done that before and it never took off. I could start up the carbon dosing. I just don't have a skimmer on the tank anymore

    This is the lower light scrubber. Cyano is more in this unit.

    This is the high power light. Less cyano in this unit. Not units didn't have algae grow the on the front of the lights.

    Sorry I didn't put any GFO on the system. Just changed the carbon reactor.

    This is what the low power scrubber looked like before I took it offline for the SURF4x replacement
