Algae Scrubber DIY

Recommended Posts

I just want to share my DIY algae scrubber. Algae growth in 2 days using a 12w par38 led light. I took the baffle from my sump and made it as a waterfall slide style scrubber. Meah can be removed by sliding it up.

Yes it's a plastic mesh. you can buy it at Jo-ann or Michaels. It should be in the cross stitch area. It's only a $1 each mesh. It's been 3 days now since i made this build and the algae is really growing fast. Hair algae is already visible.

it's a way to export nutrients such as nitrates and phosphates out of your tank by culturing algae.
