    Algae Scrubber Light Fixture Reviews

    If possible, please provide as much information about the fixture and your use of it as possible. Things such as the following might help someone make a good decision (feel free to copy & past this list and fill it in:

    Brand and model
    Link to fixture (either manufacturer or eBay/Amazon/etc listing)
    Stock photo
    Actual photo
    Claimed total wattage
    Type of LEDs (individual, multichip, etc)
    Spectrum (number of each type of chip, i.e. 6x 660nm + 3x 450nm, etc)

    Pictures of your installation
    Size of your scrubber (LxW)?
    Do you light both sides?
    Distance from front of fixture to your screen?
    If the lamp is a PAR-type fixture, did you remove the bezel and take off the lenses?
    How many hours/day do you run them?
    Did you run them at a reduced hours/day or split photoperiod at first
    If so, when did you increase hours and/or combine photoperiod?
    How often do you clean your screen?

    I hope this generates some useful information!!
