Santa Monica Filtration SURF2x Algae Scrubber


The SURF2x is a floating surface upflow algae scrubber with Green Grabber surfaces, and strings for saltwater, designed to reduce your glass cleaning and water changes while creating an environment for living micro-animals to grow inside the scrubber.

The SURF2x offers drop-in installation, reduction or elimination of water changes and nuisance algae, along with almost no-light and almost no-sound, and --possibly most important-- one-handed cleaning with no disassembly required. Compared to the SURF2, the SURF2x has two additional LEDs, as well as the ability to filter tanks with phosphates higher than 0.2 ppm.


Features:
  • Has over 24 square inches (150 square cm) of extremely rough Green-Grabber® algal growth surface which can grow up to a 2" (5 cm) thick block of green hair algae
  • Ideal in saltwater with phosphate higher than 0.2ppm.
  • Quiet, near-silent operation
  • Creates a lower-nutrient ecosystem inside itself which is different from the rest of the water in your aquarium, allowing for optimal algal growth
  • Eliminates almost all salt spray (for saltwater) and allows for minimal bubble production
  • Upflow scrubber technology prevents overflow risk-- since it is ALL underwater, it can`t overflow onto your floor
  • Comes with 3 ft (90 cm) of dual vinyl airline, but requires a 2-outlet air pump that can pump at least 5.0 total liters per minute (0.2 cfm)
  • Will run on both 120V and 240V
  • Power supply comes with a 10 ft (300 cm) UL and CE approved power adapter cord with a simple 2-prong U.S. plug, which can easily be modified
  • Can be used as a stand-alone filter or in conjunction with most other filters
  • Dry-Out proof: Power outages will not affect it since it`s always under water
  • Harvested algae can be used to feed your fish, if desired
  • Includes a 1 year warranty for replacement or repair
  • Needs to be cleaned ("harvested") every 7 to 21 days or when thick with growth

Lighting:
  • Includes six red (660 nm) 3-watt LEDs, which are attached to an aluminum heat sink which is painted black to reduce heat; it does get warm
  • The LEDs will give the aquarium or sump a slight red color at night when the aquarium lights are off, which will reduce as the SURF2x fills with growth
  • The LEDs never need replacing
  • A timer is required to run the LEDs for up to 22 hours per day

Specifications:
  • Dimensions: 6" wide by 8" long by 3" thick (15 cm wide, 20 cm long, 7.5 cm thick)
  • Recommended Water Level: 3" (7.5 cm) of water to operate in
  • LEDs: Six red (660 nm) 3-watt LEDs, which are attached to an aluminum heat sink which is painted black to reduce heat; it does get warm
  • Requires 2-outlet air pump that can pump at least 5.0 total liters per minute (0.2 cfm), which small low-cost pumps cannot do. Pumps that say they can handle 10 or more airstones, or pumps with 2 tubing attachments instead of one, are best.
