    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    One of the best DYI I have seen. Very unique and different. I really like the idea of growing out the algaes under sunlight with a feed to the display.

    That was pretty impressive growth for a 2 week period Stepho

    you are going to have to prune regular IMO as there wont be room for water

    The pictures are a little deceptive because the camera is closer on the second picture, but if you compare it to the size of the drain you can see I still had good results for only two weeks.

    If it gets too bad I may switch to just cheato since I think it grows the slowest and seems the easiest to trim.

    Looks like its time to trim again. I think I will be doing this every two weeks.

    awesome little build there. you may want to change that tubing to black so it doesnt clog with green growth. I did that on a CPR overflow and it worked WONDERFULLY>

    Yeah it has gotten pretty bad. I am definitely going to switch it out for black tubing.
