Floyd, how long do you suspect it could take to get growth back on my screen after my mishap?

since you've been running a scrubber for a while, I would think that you should start to see decent growth in a couple of weeks, but it's hard to say for sure. Coating the screen with a fresh coat of mortar might accelerate that, but that will take about 5-7 days to get it cured up and ready, so it's a bit of a toss up.

Funny how when someone comes out with a new scrubber design and BRS starts carrying it how you just jump right on that in a roundabout way.

Ok, ATS gurus. I’m in the building process of a plywood tank that’s appx. 450 gallons. It’s going to be heavily stocked. I’m going to impliment both means of nutrient control on my tank with a skimmer (probably undersized) and a ATS scrubber. I suck at math and calculations. Can someone tell me what would be the appropriate size screen to run on my waterfall ATS? Example 2’ x 4’ etc....

I thought that calculator had broken; maybe this is the fixed version.
