Get the no-overflow advantage of an upflow scrubber: since it is ALL underwater, it can't overflow onto your floor. Finally an aquarium filter that offers drop-in installation in the smallest of spaces, along with reduction or elimination of water changes and nuisance algae. And it's small enough to drop into the back compartment of many all-in-one aquariums. It operates the way the oceans and lakes do, using algae to do all the filtering, and it truly can replace all other filters in your aquarium if sized and operated correctly.
6 grows well in saltwater with phosphate up to 0.2 ppm, and in freshwater with phosphate even higher. 6 drop-in algae scrubber has 14 square inches (87 square cm) of extremely rough Green Grabber ® one-sided algal growth surface which can grow up to 1/2 (1 cm) thick green hair algae in saltwater (thinner in freshwater). This is designed to absorb the nutrients from this much feeding per day. 0.6 Frozen cubes, or.6 Pinches of flake, or. 6 Square inches (36 square cm) of nori, or. 0.06 dry ounce (1.8 grams) of pellets.
The physical size or number of gallons or liters of water in your tank or sump does not matter; however the amount of problem rock you might have, does. If you have rocks which are soaked with phosphate from having been in a problem aquarium, each 10 pounds (4.5 kg) of this problem rock will add 0.2 cube a day to your feeding amounts; so be sure to account for this when choosing a scrubber size or number of scrubbers. For example if you feed 0.5 cube a day, but have 20 pounds of rock that came from a tank with nuisance algae problems, this rock will add 0.4 cubes a day to your feeding. This applies even if the rock was dried out and bleached, because this does not remove any nutrients from the rock.If you feed more than the above amounts, you can get multiple DROP. 6 units; multiple units are preferred over one larger unit because you can clean one unit per week, and because you'll always have one unit filtering while the other one starts growing again after a cleaning. 6 units are also good for backup.
