Algae Scrubbers

Want to know how to get rid of green hair algae? The algae turf scrubber is a popular new twist on old technology to remove aquarium algae and excess nutrients. Algae scrubbers also raise pH and oxygen levels. An external algae scrubber sits outside (usually above) the sump. An internal or hang on algae scrubber, like the HOG algae scrubber, sits on or in tank. A pump feeds water to the scrubber, where water cascades down an illuminated mat and back into the sump. Turf algae grows on the mat as it draws nutrients from the water. Scrape (but don’t thoroughly clean) the algae every 10-14 days to remove nutrients, or feed herbivores by placing the mat in tank. Adjust nutrient export levels by changing the algae scrubber light cycle and flow rate.

Some hobbyists experience yellowing water with an algae scrubber. A UV sterilizer will clear up the water.
