This was covered a few months ago.  An algae scrubber grows algae in an
"auxilliary tank".  It consumes nitrogen compounds and all the other nutrients
in the water.  It competes with plants, and is therefore not desireable as a
filter for planted tanks.  They achieve their results the same way planted
tanks achieve good water quality.  I also understand they are also spendy
