Use your return sump pump by tee and valve to control. The flow or with the ACS-SK the pump is supplied with. Two foot of 1/2silicone tubing.
It depends on how available nutrients, nitrates and phosphates is in your tank on how fast algae will grow, if its taking to much out, you can adjust the lighting cycle and/or use the touch control for the lighting to increase or lower the. Note: When water is flowing out the 3/4 emergency pipe you may have algae buildup in the main 1 drain pipe and needs to be clean out.Finger touch the power icon less than 3 seconds for on/off, touch the power icon for more than 3 seconds for dimming function to lower or rise brightness level.
