    Horizontal Drip through scrubber.

    A wet/dry type drip tray with a horizontal screen.
    With the light on bottom pointing up, at a screen. Algae would grow in down like stalagmites.
    Prehaps even self slough off when it gets too long and heavy.

    Mostly curious as my top tank is next on my to do list.
    I am going to build a filter floss box, similar to a wet/dry filter top
    I would like to do a algae scrubber incorporated to save space on the top of the 75 gallon tank.
    Thanks for any help..

    Here is the tester box. Built from an acrylic case, and wallpaper d
    With reflective mylar mirror.
    I can't find any thing similar. So any help would be appreciated.

    Even turned, it's hard to tell. Maybe further away.

    Try some farther way, and don't move the camera.

    My fry tank, is blocking the view. So until they grow out some. Here is the theory. Shower head, sprinkles water over a horizontal scrubber screen. The light is mounted, down stream, pointed up at the scrubber.
    Hope this helps, the pictures are too abstract.

    The screen will block flow once it grows. You'd be better having bubble come up from the same side as the light, or have the light on the same top side as the flow. Or use eggcrate and strings instead, so light and flow can travel through it.
