shower curtain ring is a nice step from the zip tie method...good thinking
Scrubber before scraping & rinsing. Notice the mat of algae covering about 3/4 of the screen now.
Algae mat after cleaning & trimming. :
any noticeable changes in the display tank? water quality, etc... curious to know what benefits this has had for you
Yeah, Its much easier keeping the tank clean. This one is on my 55g frag. GHA still grows, but I only have to scrape like once a month now. The GHA problem I had before I started this project was so bad I was losing corals.
I've also noticed that the algae mat needs cleaning every 4th or 5th day now & gets completely saturated with this yellow/opaque jelly stuff? The algae "fluffs" up to like 2" thick with the stuff and thats what I rinse down the drain, then trim back the algae. Once the mat is fully covered with algae, I'm sure it'll be even more advantageous.
I'll post before & after pics tonight.
