IceCap Algae Turf Scrubber 60 watt
IceCap Algae Turf Scrubbers are a tried and true old technology completely modernized! The old idea of an out of sump sliding table is now a compact under the tank stand alone masterpiece with no mess or fuss. This method is a more efficient use of growing algae over a Chaetomorpha Refugium because it doesn’t crash like Chaeto does. Its uses algae as a natural water filter to remove nitrate, phosphate, and other pollutants from your aquarium water. Rather than having algae grow uncontrolled inside your display tank, an algae scrubber allows you to grow algae in a controlled setting where it can be easily removed—thereby removing contaminants from your tank in the process. This all-natural form of water filtration can reduce and even eliminate the need for water changes with the adding of micro elements. Best of all, algae scrubbers are safe for use in freshwater, saltwater, and reef aquarium systems.
The IceCap Algae Scrubber is the most advanced design to date using user friendly applications throughout. It is best utilized running above the water level in your sump or above an aquarium to allow water to trickle over the screens mounted internally with no unwanted light fallout. Simple to use with real results within 2 weeks of setting it up. We like to run them (LED's) for 12 hours a day opposite the light cycle of your aquarium for the best benefits.
