Algae Scrubber Version 3

I have resurrected a algae scrubber build from some 2 years ago. It is an acrylic box with a lid and will operate on the waterfall basis.

This is the design I have gone with:

This is what the "box" looked like once it had been constructed:

I have decided against using these LEDs and am instead going for some spotlights. I am going to update this page on a regular basis as I put this algae scrubber into use.
