Algal Turf Scrubber
Regarding the use of this filter in planted aquaria:
It is NOT generally true that the algae in an ATS system will
compete with your plants for nutrients. The reverse is somewhat
more accurate. If you want a pristine, sterile-looking tank then ATS
is not the way to go, but for a natural system it is, to me, the filter
of choice. The ability of this filter to enhance water quality is
simply amazing. For more info, try www.inlandaquatics.com .
That's a marine facility primarily, but they also have planted FW
tanks there using ATS which are awesome.
