Filter Screen as in Algae Turf Scrubber?

It does work but I dont think a stand alone ATS is usefull. Skimmer still needs to come into play.

Skimmer = Most important part of any reef enthusiast.

Algae scrubber is proven to work and imo takes up less space, reduce carbon footprint(I'm using led scrubber), the best part is you do not need to change water too frequently(I change 5% per mth for my 600l tank), regular cleaning n removing algae weekly is much better than cleaning filter sock, skimmer cup, change po4 and carbon when exhausted. save money in the long run.
