    Yes, the algae is growing in the strings specially in the botton.
    and in the middle there are some spots of algae.

    I am running this scrubber for 3 weeks and I only have 4 clown fishs in this tank, for this reason I am not feeding so much the system.

    Do you have any suggestion to improve it?

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    Best regards.
