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!


I make a very good product, and I'm ramping up production as I now do this on a part-time basis

Donate to the Reef2Reef Toys For Kids drive and get a chance to win an L2 scrubber!!

The Holiday Sale is over, but you still have a chance to win a Turbo Algae Scrubber!


Every year, I donate something to the Reef2Reef Toys For Kids drive.  This year, it started as a $300 Gift Certificate, but I've decided to up it to the value of an L2 + shipping ($399 retail + $20 shipping*), or $419.
*Shipping is flat for the US lower 48, additional charges would apply for shipping to AK, HI and international.

In addition to this, I'm adding in some bonus factors!

If you win my donated prize in the 2018 Reef2Reef Toys For Kids drive, and

1) If you have purchased any algae scrubber from me within the last 2 months

-- OR --

2) If you purchase any algae scrubber from me between now and the drawing

-- THEN --

I'll refund you the value of the prize (less any discounts that may have applied at your time of purchase).  So, if you are thinking of buying one, but you want to see if you'll win one instead, I've got you covered!


Since this is a Gift Certificate, you can (of course) apply it towards the purchase of a larger unit, or anything else that I sell

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: The 4th version of my Algae Scrubbers hit the market! The L2, L4, and L8 units are now shipping as fast as I can build them

 
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....)
