In this video, i show you how to build a do it yourself algae scrubber. This will be beneficial to your aquarium in that it will eliminate high nitrates and phosphates. In turn, giving your fish better water and combating algae in the main aquarium.
The king of DIY
This is around the time i subscribed to the channel. Fun looking back at these years later
Do you still use such item ?
If I have a Canister, Protein Skimmer do need this?
"hi everybody joey here again and welcome back"
Thanks. There is a problem here you are talktive😄 but i like you🤗
Just set mine up lastnight, how long before I start to see some algae growth?
Fetus Joey is the cutest
I scrub my algae in my aquarium with my cradit card
You have come a long way Joey your almost robotic in this vid as compared to now
I really appreciate these videos Joey.
Hi, I'm going to build one of these and wondered if you could use a cheap RGB LED strip light from eBay to light it and grow the algae? Like the ones you can buy to go inside your tank. They're normally available in either white, white and blue or RGB colours and I thought the RGB version would be best. They're so much cheaper than the LED's you use in you upgraded algae scrubber.
the build was cool, but didn't see it put into any aquarium…
Can you harvest the algae to make your own algae wafers?? If not how can I make my own algae wafers at home
Wow! That was great information! Thank you so much Joey!
Joey you look so young here!!!
Could this work with a net as the mesh a clear cup as the casing and a window as the light source?
That's funny. @1:47 Joey says, "Each basket is $1, so they were $2 each." Great idea and very nice and cheap DIY project for the fish tank.
Thank u joey u r awesome . What im thinking of doing in my aquaryum is diguise it eith pomess stona and growing plants . And i wanted to ask u or anyone who knows if it b a good idea to put an led inside a pvc canester system with a mesh and make it an inline type deal ?
So I have micro little bubbles all over my substrate and java moss and other plants there are so many my moss has floated to the top. What are these little clear/white micro bubbles? What can I do?
Dam look at how much he changed. He has bigger arms and his personality changed as well
Sir many neon tetra can I kept in a 40 gallon tank of size 36*12*24 inches length breath height respectively
Wow .. can't believe I only just found this super idea. Will watch the Super Charged version next. Thanx Joey xox
Thanks! This is so helpful!
Joey looks so young here!!
My stiphodon would love this or I could just get a couple more and forget about algae issues.
Which one will works better a bio logical filtration or algae scrubbers?
Just made one too. this is a Great idea indeed
You really are king of DIY. Can't wait to see the progression of the new Tank/office.
hablas mucho para explicar las cosas!! videos aburridos!!
Oh, how Joey has changed. lol
Is this for freshwater or saltwater
Hi! thanks for the video. how can i add this to a sump? if i already grow plants in my sump i need this scrubber?
Oh i want No3 and Po4 in there. actually ad that stuff regularly.
Let me scrapped off the algae using my driver's lisence as Joey said :')
Why to use the air pump? For me it works just with normal water movement.
Not only are CFL and some LED's (Depending on how they are manufactured) low wattage, but normal incandescent, halogen lights etc have little to no usable light to plants, thus, photosynthesis cannot run its course properly.
this seems to be a strange theory that I don't believe works: how can the promotion of angea growth in one part of your tank reduce the amount that grows in the rest? 2ndly: angea floats in small quantities we cannot see with our natural eyes; so this strong growing area is promoting as it "flakes" off into the water.
What's the reason for putting the screen in a box?
Will this size work for my 55 gallon reef tank?
could you do a video of a waterfall algae scrubber? I've been working on one but can't seem to get the water to flow over the screen in a consistent sheet. Thank you videos are awesome! keep up the good work.
no green Algae?
Do plants absorb nitrates (sorry if I spelt it wrong)
awesome videos! I just binge watched a ton of them.. you do a great job making the demo's and its awesome how you always do it as cheap as possible. thanks!
hi Joey…I have my close to the window, lot of sun light go in, if I close the blind so the room wil get too dark. is this algae scrubber would help?
I read 20-25 pages on reef central on ATS. Came here and see that this is by far the best way to go without messing with my plumbing. Thanks!
