I've been mulling the idea of making an algal turf scrubber. I've been seeing them in action and I have to say, I'm impressed.

    I've got one in my sump. There are pretty easy to make.

    but the real question is how do they perform over time and can they go a few days without attention.

    At one point mine probably required cleaning every couple of weeks but the growth rate has declined dramatically over the past few months. I'm guessing algae growing in the rest of the sump is out competing it.
