    Re: Pre-made scrubber

    Oops, I was looking at the 4x24W Nova extreme.
    The 2x24W = $80, * 2 = $160
    Yes, An eheim 1262 (not 1260) was $200.

    Pricing was a quick look at marinedepot.
    Not the lowest cost for those components I guess.
    And of course, DIY lighting, ebay, and other places can shave off a whole lot more.

    Yep, eliminates a lot of components.
    Of course ... I already bought all those. Grrr.
    But more importantly, better healthier tank, and probable less labor in the end.

    Re: Pre-made scrubber

    Will you sell a complete setup, as in pump, box, light and basic plumping? Or just light and box?

    Furthermore, will you ship outside USA?

    Re: Pre-made scrubber

    I can certainly get a pump too and put it in the box, along with some tubing. Would it be for on-sump placement (where clear tubing is fine), or external placement where black tubing would be needed?

    Lights are a given, for a complete unit. I think I'll keep the lights in the original boxes (with bulbs already changed out), so you will get the original warranty.

    ----------------------

    I have everything almost together for a final round of pics/video. I'm covered in black dust from cutting the pipe slot (it's amazing that you can't buy slotted pipe anywhere). I just have to glue some tabs on the shelves to hold the lights in place.

    Re: Pre-made scrubber

    But do you have an idea on the cost of the acrylic version? As you wrote earlier it wont be as expensive as this black one showcased I just made a quick math and the price with all would be around 700 $ and then I need to multiply with 1,33 since thats the VAT, tax and so on and so forth... Rather expensive, and yes yes I know against as good skimmer its nothing :P

    The black IS the acrylic. Same thing. The $289 plus shipping (plus tax if in California) is for the acrylic box as pictured. It can be other colors, or clear, but the black is to keep the light inside.

    The complete unit, without pump or feed/drain tubing, will probably be less that $700 USD. I'm attaching the lights to the shelves this weekend.

    Re: Pre-made scrubber

    Here are several places to get the lights. The FW and SW versions are the same; the bulbs are the only difference (you replace the bulbs anyways). You want Model 1124 or 1127:

    Note: The earlier version of these lights were only 4.5 inches deep; you want the new version which are 5.25 inches deep (the older ones work fine, but don't fit neatly between the shelves. Here are some places to buy:

    Can be with or without lighting units. If with lighting units, the units are shipped to you in their original boxes separately from the scrubber (and the bulbs have already replaced with 3000K); they come with a one-year warranty from Current (you fill out warranty card and mail in).


    With lights: $649 USD plus shipping (shipping is 3 boxes), (plus tax if in California)

    Without lights: $489 USD plus shipping (plus tax if in California)

    Sweet design.
    But why just one layer of screen?
    In most of the forums, you really seem to push for two layers being best.

    Are you into production yet, taking orders, or just seeing who would be interested? I would be interested for a complete unit.
