theres nothing to building an algae scrubber, all you need is a screen zip tied to piece of pipe with holes drilled in it a small pump to pump water and some low kelvin lamps on eitehr side

Nah, its not a rip off or the same guy,while santamonica put the scrubber on the map ,so to speak(lots of trial and error by the way,and still making changes) the scrubbers have been around since the 70's ,,santamonica didn't discover or invent anything new,just made it more aware ...
