    Algae turf scrubber from 302 aquatics.

    Model AS-04, for system up to 125 gallons.

    https://m.ebay.com/itm/302-Aquatics-Algae-Scrubber-AS-04-New-Size-/252831921219?nav=SEARCH

    Has 4 x 20W lights.

    The base measures 12.5 long x 8 wide x 8.5 tall. The bulkhead adds about 2 inches to the length.

    In good working condition, though it is used. Retails for $260. I bought it preowned unused about 6 months ago. Will sell it for $160. I am located in Palo Alto, work in Union City/Fremont.

    It grow algae well. A ton of light. It’s just that the better it grows the more often it needs to be cleaned. The screen needs to be removed and the algae scraped off. Not hard, just not ideal if you can make room for a large enough fuge to replace it.

    My opinion on this topic is if you can fit a large fuge that is best. If you don’t have the space, then between a chaeto reactor and ATS an ATS is generally easier I think than opening up that reactor and cleaning it. Also turf algae won’t all of a sudden die on you like chaeto will, IME.

    How often did you need to clean it? And how many hours a day were you running the lights?

    I was cleaning it once a week because by then the whole screen was full and they say that light cannot penetrate to the deeper areas once it grows thick. You can reduce the cleanings if it is not growing as rapidly for you.

    My lights were running 18h/day.

    Would this be overkill for a 20g?
