    Coming back into stock now, the SURF2 scrubber®. Shown here is how you lift up the lid to view the growth.

    Not as much red in this holiday growth, but there is lots of mashed-up Cladophora, with some yellow slime and some brown slime. This actually should have been harvested/cleaned much sooner, because it just can't grow (filter) anymore because there is no more room inside.

    This is less Creature Goo, and more Ulva Fasciata from a SURF2 (or 2x or 2xx)

    Some tanks have no sump at all, not even on the back. If there is enough floating space on top, and it won't block the lights, a SURF scrubber is a possible solution.

    This SURF2 or 2x or 2xx is shown after being pulled out of a cylinder tank during a water change. Since there is no sump, the SURF floats at the top. And since this is saltwater, a SURF (which has strings) is ok; but if it were freshwater then a model without strings would be best.

    This SURF2 or 2x scrubber® is in a small saltwater sump compartment, and is not affected by the salt splash buildup.

    Here is a hand-grab of growth out of a SURF2 or 2x scrubber® floating in a sump. When growth is green hair algae, this is the easiest way.

    This looks to be a SURF2 or 2x with some Green Grabber® screen cut up to fit in with the strings. Some have said this helped, and others said the strings were enough by themselves.
