    This customer's HOG3 or 3x or 3xx in saltwater shows a growth progression after a cleaning, with the growth starting on the strings first and then filling in the Green Grabber rocky textures. Sometimes the rock textures fill in before the strings, but here it's strings first:

    Customer's DROP1.4 scrubber in saltwater. Note the LEDs are strong enough to burn through the growth, so they never get grown over. Also note the strings help fill in the middle section with growth. And lastly note that there is more than enough water circulation inside; the small holes on the bottom of the scrubber is all that is needed or wanted (any bigger and snails would get inside).

    When this fills in more, you would harvest (clean) by reaching in and pulling out the growth. For freshwater cleaning on DROP's without strings (like the 1.2 or 1.2x) the growth is too slimy to grab so you take to your sink for a brushing (or open it and let the fish and snails eat!)...

    This customer's SURF2 or 2x shows a mix of cyano, white slime, and some green slime. Might be some green hair in there also. All of this absorbs nutrients out of the water.

    This should be brushed out in a sink, with running water, so that the white Green Grabber textures are visible again. About every 7 days is good.

    This customer's SURF8 is growing nice, and sits in a large sump outside his house:
