    If you'd like to get the scrubber growing again, post a pic of the growth.

Size:  53.8 KB This is what I have been growing. It is still bubbling, but I think all the bristleworms are eating it.

    I still don't seem to be growing turf algae like I used to. Could the bristleworms be eating the stuff, or it doesn't like to grow on the coraline algae that has since formed?

    I soaked the air stone in vinegar to remove a bit of the growth too.

    Coralline will repel algae, yes. But is that bubbler in the middle the only one? Coralline is usually from too weak light.

    Yes that is my only bubbler. I used to get a lot more growth. The red LED's seem to be doing good.

    Add another bubbler or two. Or a long airline with cuts.

    @skuttduck ,
    Let me know if you need an air pump. I have several to choose from.

    I have another air stone and an aqualifter. I probably need to back the light up a bit which is hard to do there off the shelving that my sump is sitting on.

    I have since re-arranged the airstone a bit and will see what this does.
