upflow algae scrubber
Well folks time to change direction from the water fall to the up flow scrubbers. I have converted my water fall scubber into the UAS. I have incorporated to be hung on the side of the sump.. Also added the LED and heat sink on both side. I was originally wanted to just use one side lighting. But, change my mind when I figure I can mounted on the side instead. Luckly, I had enough space in my sump are and my cabinet door was able to clost shut. Everything is already done, last thing I need to do is plumb the UAS and start testing.
Once everything has been completed, I will spray paint it black but not the heat sink area.
without further ado here are some pictures..
here is testing and leveling out the sump.
here is the heat sink. it's a 4x9 plate.
here the almost completed UAS
More to come later.
