302 Aquatics DAS Algae Turf Scrubbers

Kick Those Nutrients to the Curb and Take Control of Your Aquarium!

We have been in partnership with 302 Aquatics for several years now selling algae turf to many satisfied hobbyists. These brand new DAS models offer the HIGHEST quality of turf scrubbers out on the market.

These algae turf scrubbers offer a fitted lid and all colored acrylic construction with rounded edges. Reversible spray bar and inlet feature makes it easier to install or place. Precisely drilled holes in the spray bar for the most efficient water distribution across the screen. This is especially apparent with larger units where slots will not get the job done!

We have been producing algae turf scrubbers for nearly a decade with over 10,000 units on the field and making custom turf scrubbers for aquariums as large as 3,000 gallons. No algae scrubber marker on the market can claim units of such a size!

Our units utilize 2700k led lights that have been proven to produce the most algae in the fastest amount of time. 2700K converted to Nanometers is about 659nm (Don't believe us - do the math - ^_^). We can do the conversion here for you if you don't want to do the calculation yourself:

2700K = 4400 Fahrenheit 

2,897,768 / 4400 Fahrenheit =  659nm

This is the same NM that some of our competitors state on their scrubbers, but our lights provide more lumens which mean faster and thicker algae growth!

These scrubbers also have built in light blockers (no extra accessories needed!), quick disconnect bulkhead fittings for ease of removal of the spray bar. Available with side main drain or bottom main drain. All units come with an emergency backup drain.

302 Aquatics has really stepped it up with this scrubber model and we are happy to have it available for sale for our customers. It is now the scrubber of choice for our display tanks.

Algae turf scrubbers have been a remarkable breakthrough in the aquatics industry.  They have the ability to provide a complete nitrogen cycle, grow pods for fish, and eliminate nuisance algae from your display tank.  They work so well they can replace various reef equipment - media reactors, protein skimmers, phosphate reactors, denitrators, etc.  They literally pay for themselves!
