Here are some scrubber results I collected:

\"[Scrubber] is working incredible well. Went from constant algae outbreaks (3-4 per year), to no algae at all. 10 yr old 250 gal reef tank, started developing blooms at year 7. Nothing else worked, even breakdown and rebuilds.\" -- Joe Lopez

\"I recent removed bio-pellets, GFO, and trimmed off a lot of macro algae. Oh yeah, overfeeding now to try and bring up my phosphates. Since removing a bunch of nutrient exporting systems like bio-pellets, GFO, and a second algae scrubber, my [scrubber] has been growing nuts. It\'s been less then 7 days and I have to remove more. People are surprised when I open up the [scrubber] and show them what I pull out with one hand\" -- ReeferEric on the R2R site. pics:





\"I pull a handful out every week\" -- Choff on the R2R site.

\"Everything is working great, got two of them on my system\" -- Kenneth Salomon

Dan Budz:






\"The [scrubber] is working well\" -- JT Powell

\"All I can say about the [scrubber] is WoW. It completely wiped out my severe case of Cyano Bacteria in 4 weeks, it is working like a champ. I was a little skeptical that it would work at first because it\'s very compact, but I am completely amazed on how great it\'s working.\" -- John Quezada

\"My [scrubber] is working great\" -- Stefan Kolev

\"Happy to report that the [scrubber] is growing lots of hair algae\" -- Kidtango on the R2R site

\"[Scrubber] is growing thick and fast\" -- Carl Knowles

\"Boom... 7 days growth from my [scrubber]\" -- rdevoe11, pic:

Here are some upflow layout designs to give you ideas of what might fit your tank or ability to DIY better:

Dark Slime and Black Slime - what it looks like

Here are some examples of dark slime, and black slime. Usually slime it starts on new scrubbers which have high measurable nutrients in the water, or on small scrubbers on big tanks with lots of rock where the scrubber is not big enough to pull the nutrients out fast enough.

Notice that some of them have white patches; this is because the slime let go and floated away, leaving white surfaces behind.

In all cases, just take it to your sink and toothbrush them (without toothpaste) so that you can see the white surfaces again.
