    With more people wanting to use natural filtration for their tanks, we are going to look at the two main types of units that you can put on your system: Chaeto reactors (or "algae reactors") and algae turf scrubbers (ATS), with a focus on freshwater because MFT has more of that.

    We won’t be looking at refugiums however, since those have mostly a different purpose. This will be a multi-part post; the next post will start with the basics, so if you’d like anything in particular to be covered, let me know.

    The person would actually be Walter Adey, with the original patent in 1980. Morgan had some type of license agreement with Walter, and built the units and tried to market them.
