Randy, yes, there are much more suitable media to use, i just happened to have egg crate....lol the powerhead is just for circulation. I may revise it a bit down the road, but for now, it's science experiment. You of all people i think can appreciate that.....lol
Absolutely, I was just trying to fully understand what you had going on. I'm not sure if you're familiar with the turf scrubbers, but basically if you added a plastic mesh over your eggcrate and ziptied that mesh to the eggcrate you would be there. It just gives your algae more surface area to grow on. Some people like to rough the screen or mesh up a little, but I've found that it does fine just as it is.
