    Algeau scrubber upflow external

    I am thinking of making a algae scrubber for mine 100L/25gallon thank marine.
    have a lot of algea in main display ( don't what to do)
    i am running phosphate and sillicat absorber.
    maybe i have to much lighting.

    my system is the following

    inlet eheim -->
    eheim canister 2213 -->
    50 by 10 by 5 chaeto growth tank-->
    interal sump -->
    rsm 130 protein skimmer
    out let tank
    lighting is
    7 led running on 7,1 watt ( 10 led 20000k)
    2 blue led 10 watt
    soon get a 3d model i will post it


    let get back to the algea scrubber

    My idea is to put the algae scrubber out of the water in to a separate box.
    Screen size is going to be 100mm x 200mm
    Light 2 deep red led. 3W
    I am going to place a 60L/15 gallon air pump
    And a pump whit 75gallon for getting water out of tank and overflow to get in back in there.

    My question is is this flow enough ?
    do I need that air pump?
    it is not going to stimulate flow from tank.
    Just for flow inside scrubber. And maybe CO2




    if i can get algae out of the tank this Saturday i will be extremely happy ( got a lot of family that is goin to see tank for first time it running form october but still)

    I almost forgot to mention
    i do have fish and coral already
    2 nemo
    2 Chinese dart-fish
    1 sea star
    and some corals and 1 anemone

    by the way srry for crappy English i am not English

    No it is the black box
    At first I want to keep my chaeto and see wat happens
    So it wil be vertical.
    But I indeed also have the opertunity to make it horizontal but don't know if that is wise

    It is going to be pretty simple

    Red led
    Glass
    Screen
    And May be air stone in the bottom

    Oh and a tube that transfer the water to the bottom
