Turbo's Aquatics
Top Quality Algae Scrubbers

The last Algae Scrubber you will ever buy. Unless you by another one from me. They are really that awesome.

Welcome to Turbo's Aquatics! This site is admittedly not that comprehensive...but life keeps me extremely busy, and I'm always running a backlog...so I don't have a whole lot of incentive to make it snazzy and make that backlog worse. I make a very good product, but it's all in my free time.

Check out the Features tab, that's new (if you have been here before 4/25)

Hey there! I'm Bud Carlson, the owner of Turbo's Aquatics. You may know me by my forum handle "Floyd R Turbo" on several reefkeeping forums. Yup, that's me.

I fired up my first Algae Scrubber on October 10th, 2010. It was a memorable date. Mainly because 10/10/10 is really easy to remember.

I started making and selling Algae Scrubbers in mid 2012...and ever since then I have had enough demand that I have never been able to stay ahead. So, having a product website would only have made that worse.

Since 2012, I've revised my original acrylic production model twice, using super creative names like Rev 1, Rev 2, and Rev 3. Catchy, eh?

Fast forward to 2016: Starting in March, the 4th version of my Algae Scrubbers hit the market! The L2 is now shipping as fast as I can build them (which is about 5x as fast as ever before, yay!) with the L4, L8 and L16 coming soon!

So yeah, it's a website! It's not done though. One step at a time.

Now Available: the Rev 4 Turbo Algae Scrubbers!
Model L2 (2 cubes/day filtration capacity)

What is an Algae Scrubber?

If you have never heard of an Algae Scrubber before, you're about to be like "whaaaaaat?"

So you take this screen, rough it up, put light on it, and run water over it and presto! You get algae. Guess what? Algae grows by turning nutrients like Nitrates and Phosphates into...um...more algae. I was trying to make that sound really magical but that's pretty much it.

So algae grows, which sucks out the by-products tank inhabitants produce. Seems pretty simple, right? EXACTLY so why aren't you running one? Duh! BUY ONE NOW!!! Oh wait, no shopping cart yet. DANG IT!

Ok so fill out the contact form and I'll get in touch with you. In the meantime, check out a few articles on my support site by clicking the button below, or clicking the Support Tab in the menu at the top of the page

Thanks, and have an awesome day.

Bud (you can call me "Turbo" or "Floyd", I respond to many other things also, but I can't really post them all here....)
