Well, that is good to hear. A large sump is my next DIY project so I can have all the toys in it that I have in my current one with the addition of a DIY algae scrubber.

Basically, you siphon very slow moving water down a roughed up surface with lights pointed at it. This forces algae growth there rather than in other areas of the tank. Really neat concept and have been reading more about them. When I first started saltwater, I read of one person here using one. Now I keep seeing more and more adding them to their sump setups along with their fuge, skimmer, etc.
