Thread: My New Scrubber Setup

    My New Scrubber Setup

    Hi I used to have a protein skimmer but found in this website an alternative and want to give it a try.

    I'm posting photos of my tank and my sump so you can see my setup and advice me on how to improve it.

    This tank have 2 months, It's a 60 gallons system, I used to have a 200 gallon tank in my office, but I changed places and the new place doesn't have the space for the tank, so I installed this one in my home with what I have and donate some other habitants and rocks that I couldn't fit to a friend.

    Thank you.

    Fernando.

    Looks good for a nice simple 60 gal. If each bulb is a 23w CFL, it should filter great.

    thank you, the lamps are two 20w mini spiral CFL.

    that is what I had at my home, do you think it's better to change them for a 23w?

    For the price of 23w cfl in my area I would replace them. It would probably be fine as is but it will work better with the warm 23w+ cfl

    Or just wait the three months and change them then.

    Hello Dave, I'm very happy with the results, my corals look very happy and the algea in my rocks it's disappearing, the glass last longer without cleaning and the sand looks whitier.

    The kind of algea that grows in my scrubber it's starting to change, first it was a lot of filamentus and brown algea and now it's almost all filamentus and a little bit of ciano I think.

    I will post some fotos tomorrow.

    Thank you.
