    HOG1x

    Get the no-overflow advantage of an upflow scrubber: since it is ALL underwater, it can't overflow onto your floor.

    Twice the light and power supply of the HOG1:

    Here's a customer's HOG1 or 1x in saltwater, although it's also fine with freshwater because is does not have strings. The growth should eventually spread to the sides after a few more cleanings.

    This amount growth is about average for saltwater. New tanks will usually be much less, and more of a brownish slime; older tanks can get thick sometimes, and fill up the compartment (but not always).

    HOG1 or 1x scrubber® pulled out of saltwater. The green is mostly Cladophora species. Below that is darker slime, caused by shading from the green (less light causes darker growth). Should probably clean a day or so earlier so that the dark occurs less; dark holds a lot of nutrients but will let go sooner and clog the holes. And a good brushing down to the white Green Grabber® surface is best.

    A very packed HOG1x from a saltwater system. The "X" looks neat, but not sure what caused it.

    Update: Since the Fusion 700 air pump is no longer available, the Danner AP-4 is now recommended for most scrubbers, except the SURF4 or 4x which can use a Danner AP-8, and the SURF8 which needs a large single-outlet pump.

    Note that all HOG and DROP models have 1 air inlet, therefore the 2 outlets of the Danner AP-4 pump can be combined into 1 with a "T" or "Y" fitting, and this will give you a lot of air which can still be reduced with the control knob. If you don't want to combine the outlets, then the smaller Danner AP-3 pump has only 1 outlet, but it also does not have a control knob.
