Well I'm finally going to join the Algae Turf Scrubber crowd, due to the awesome writeup by Floyd R Turbo, high nitrates in my tank, not wanting to pay for a skimmer, and a dying need for some more DIY projects ;D. Since I'm out of room under my stand, I am building a cabinet to sit next to the tank that will match the stand. This is going to house my new ATS along with all of my other goodies that are currently out in the open. Here is what I came up with so far. This took me about 5 minutes to get this much done, and here's my total cost as of now: Storage tote from walmart: $6 Plumbing - free from work 7 Sheets of clear mesh for screen: $10 Amazon.com: Artist Plastic Canvas 7 Count 13-5/8x21-5/8"-Clear: Arts, Crafts & Sewing Total cost so far - $16 The screen will probably be 11" x 7". It will be lit from both sides with 8 Osram 660nm Red 3w leds (4 on each side), and a Meanwell dimmable driver to control the intensity. It will be fed by a MagDrive pump in the sump. I'm going to install two 1 inch bulkheads in the bottom for drains back to the sump with spa flex.
