    Ok I'm getting my posts screwed up here...my last post referred to my personal L2 on my 120g tank. The harvest in the last set of pictures above is 14 days, that scrubber is on a tank at an office and I stop in once a week to bring top off water and every other week I clean the unit. So I set the light timer such that the growth is just right for cleaning at 14 days, but I had accidentally flipped the timer switch to "ON" when I adjusted it for DST.

    All good and thanks for your response.
    Even for 14 days, that's awesome growth, way more than I'm getting- mine is about 3 months old.
    Kudos on your latest design- I do hope sales go well- they should as it's an excellent product.

    IMHO- I'd change your avatar picture here- Johnny Carson?
    HOw about a pic of a ATS?
    Mine is a side view of my current 180g

    Scrub on!

    Seems like putting it in a composter would be a great idea, never done it though.

    Thanks!

    That's a JC character = Floyd R Turbo. That has been my online handle since the days of BBSs and my dial-up 2400 baud modem. I resurrected it when I got into online forums circa 2006

    I'm interested in the pricing once you get everything finalized. Please keep me informed. I have a 250 total system and lets plan on 3 cubes a day.
    thanks
