Hamish is on a distinguished road

I unplugged it, the screen needs to be replaced as i joined two together and my pump might be too strong, its on its lowest setting and its quite powerful, id be interested in knowning what the appearance of the screen is after a week or a month, how long does it take for the algae to grow? Thanks

homy77 has a spectacular aura about

so, for mine, i had most of it covered in dark brown or black algae after about 2 weeks

i actually scraped it off on monday, but it's already starting to grow back.

from what i've read, it should be about a month before the light green algae that really does the work starts to grow.

i'll take some pictures next time before i scrape, keep a bit of a log.
