    Contest: Guess what this is

    Time for a neat contest: The person who can guess what new aquarium product this is (and even better, what it does) wins the first one Serial Number 0001

    Actually the first one will be a rough DIY version, to get feedback from people running it in different systems, but it still should work great!

    To enter, post here and say what the thing is.

    Winner picked soon.

    Hope you win!

    Here were the guesses for test unit #1


    @slipknot2443: all-in-one aquarium algae scrubber


    xxkenny90xx on pnwmas: algae scrubber for nutrient export

    ladashark on pnw: completely enclosed, with particularly high surface area to make it more efficient. Of course, it is used to remove nitrates, phosphate, and some level of organics in the water. I see that it appears to have some sort of removable tray or the like at the bottom. Curving inwards to make it easier to pinch and pull out. Maybe to remove algae. It could be a light too. slides all the way back (and makes up that surface)

    503guy on WRS: Nano protein skimmer

    obrien.david.j on pnw: a giant pod TRANSPORT hotel. rip off the black tape on the bottom, put it in your tank, allow the seeded pods to proliferate and mix into your system.

    CrazyInside on pnw: an algae scrubber for AIO tanks, like the waterboxes and red sea aios. Looks like it would fit in one of the chambers

    Saltfishlover on pnw: Submersible water quality monitor for sump tanks with digital LED display

    Pennywise on pnw: bio block for AIO tanks.

    gumby on pnw: all in one algae scrubber to be in sump or overflow box

    conrad on wrs: In sump scrubber for between baffles

    Oregonic on pnw: Gravity fed algae scrubber for an AIO, aka no pump down flow.

    eswinej on wrs: nano ato

    vetteguy53081 on wrs: Algae scrubber

    Krux on pnwmas: Algae scrubber designed to drop in to a filter sock holder

    40glnuvo on pnwmas: filter that has a pump inside you place it in the bottom of a tank that has no sand and it cleans detritus so you tank is always clean

    joseserrano on socalireefs: Algae reactor for all in ones

    murphys_aquatics: Looks like a nano rain scrubber. Looks like the water falls into it via gravity. With the opening in place of a media chamber. Overflows directly into the scrubber. Could eliminate media chambers and foam pads all together.

    billy.pipes: drop version algae scrubber that goes in a AIO aquarium that doesn't require an air pump

    the_lazy_reefer: In chamber algae scrubber

    travisusmc3488: Hob algae reactor

    alpha.aquatic: aio waterfall algae scrubber

    polyp_puddle: Algea scrubber

    versa_reef: drop in algae scrubber. Instead of a door system like previous systems, it utilizes a pull out carrier (like one of those rectangle pencil pouches) for lower chance of light bleeding and much simpler ease of access

    abaraj619: new DROP Algae Scrubber for AIO tanks

    nanorox1: algae scrubber Insert for an AIO aquarium

    unorthodox_reef: drop in flow through algae scrubber, maybe filter sock replacement or nice enough for in tank. Since I don’t see a power cord I’m guess it has a magnetic back with external light

    We have our first winner of the best guess of all the guesses... Cory Graese !

    He guessed: "All in one nano algae scrubber. Self-contained and will fit the back of something like a Fluval Evo or a bio cube. Will also work on normal larger systems with a sump, it can be slid in a sump chamber and not take up much space. Works by either using an air stone or a small contained pump to slowly pass water completely by an LED self contained light as well as an algae growing surface to remove nitrates from the water column."

    He wins test unit #1 of the new SLIP.7 scrubber.

    Coming up... Contest Part 2 with more details, and a second winner. If you want to see all the Part 1 guesses, they are here:

    Time for Contest #2 of the new SLIP.7 from Santa Monica

    Winner #1 guessed mostly correctly, that the SLIP.7 will function as a waterfall scrubber combined with a bubble upflow (UAS®) scrubber, but left out one more major function that everyone wants. Can you guess what it is? The most accurate and complete answer wins test unit #2.

    Here was Winner #1...

    And the winner of Contest #2 is: Edmond Mahmoodi

    He was the only one to guess Chaeto! Yes the SLIP.7 is the first combo ATS:

    Chaeto Reactor
    Waterfall Algae Scrubber
    Upflow Algae Scrubber UAS®

    He wins test unit #2, after test unit #1 gets sent to Corey Graese.

    Contest #2 entries:


    two_lagoons: Algae scrubbed for innovative marine AIO tanks

    calipsosreefing: Fuge

    503reefdroid: Surface skimmer

    chimpthereefer: UV sterilizer with a 7 watt bulb for crystal clear water

    ariedidthat: Self cleaning, algae falls to the bottom when you take apart the top and pull the “algae mat” out. Bottom is removable and algae can be thrown away or saved for tangs

    mi.grzeszczak_hardscape: Bio denitrate chamber

    William Hall: Water pump

    harkinsaquatics: AIO Algie scrubber driven by down draft current in the second chamber. Fully contained with lights and all for no light bleed

    quangphuc.3005: A nano algae turf scrubber


    Nick Bossert: Wave maker box. Pump fills and bails water in and out of the box creating wave effects in the aquarium.

    TJ Gibson: waterfall scrubber /upflow scrubber and UV sterilizer

    Andys Reef: surface skimmer

    Abbey McDonald: Carbon block for clear water

    Mike Heberlein: carbon

    Austyn Rocco: Algae scrubber for waterbox tanks

    Evan Park: Dimable lights for getting the algae started as opposed to shade cloth that may not work in a flow through unit.

    Rogelio Gonzalez Rodrigues: Filho Part filter canister

    Mitchell Ondrovcik: Dimmable lights/grabber screen &/or removable growth chamber. Uas with grabber growth screen combined with waterfall, so an AIO that has dimmable lights/removable growth chamber for ease of cleaning with a custom designed/printed square shaped flow bar for the waterfall to slide in/out to prevent clogging & achieve better flow rates.

    Michael Cacace: Skimmer

    Penny Sweets: In addition to having both waterfall and bubble up flow scrubbers, and fitting into AIO rear chambers, my guess is that it’ll have led lights on both sides of the screen for even more growth!
