Sorry haven't posted that vid yet, been doing a bit of thinking and decided to invest in a hog.5 just to test it out, if it works and does a gd job then I'm gonna change all my pipework and add a big scrubber, I'll let you know how the hog.5 goes.

Recieved my algae scrubber on Wednesday so installed it and turned it on yesterday for 16hrs, it's on again today gonna leave it for 16hrs again, I will up the length of time it's on in a week or so, I will post some pics of my progress. Having a few problems getting the bubbles to run evenly over the scrubber so gonna have a play around with that tonight. Pics later
