Eight more cleanings/harvests! And remember I have 3 other SURF2 units running on this system. Note: Freshwater does not grow this thick.
World's first floating surface scrubber - the SURF2 ® - from Santa Monica Filtration ®.
The SURF2 ® with ribbons and 24+ square inches of horizontal Green-Grabber (tm) ultra rough growth surfaces grabs new growth right away, and can grow up to 2 inches thick. This is algae that will not be growing in your tank! This is about two full handfuls, and is designed to absorb the nutrients from this much feeding per day:
2 Frozen cubes, or
20 Pinches of flake, or
20 Square inches (125 square cm) of nori, or
5.6 grams of pellets
The physical size or number of gallons or liters of water in your tank or sump does not matter. If you feed more than the above amounts, you can get multiple SURF2 units; multiple units are preferred over one larger unit because you can clean one unit per week, and because you'll always have one unit filtering while the other one starts growing again after a cleaning. Multiple SURF2 units are also good for backup. Or you can get the larger SURF4.
