Algea Turf Scrubber


Where am I?

I have an Algea Turf scrubber that has 2 screens the first month was good but now I grow more cyno then I do anything else. It seems to be more cyno growing on the screens now, didn't do anything different. I changed the bulbs to LED 5K think it was the 5k compact but no difference.

Does anyone have a clue of what may be causing this? It's dual screened with 4 bulbs and ran with a mag 18 and runs roughly 20".

Sounds like your current setup may not have enough nutrients to support what you once had. Maybe you could cut the screens down or start feeding more.

Can you share a picture. Even if my ATS 'wanted' to grow cyano, the flow rate would immediately strip it off.

There is a very active discussion on ATS in the Advanced Topics section here.
I'm sure you would do better there.
Merry Christmas & Happy new Year.
