    More HOG fun with this HOG1 or 1x in saltwater. There is an unknown white spot in the middle; probably is a growth ring with brand new Green Grabber beach rocky surface below it. This scrubber will need to be brushed in the sink, because this growth is not long and strong enough to be pulled out by hand.

    The growth is light yellowish green, especially in the middle, meaning strong illumination compared to nutrients in the water. After cleaning, the white surfaces will reflect more light, and the growth might be even more light colored, so they might need to be reduced by two hours a day. Or you could feed more.

    This is Jim Stime's customer's outdoor sump with a SURF4x (also has a HOG3 or 3x or 3xx) that has been growing a bit too many days and needs a harvest, and also a good brush cleaning of the light. The growth tends to seek out the light, and in this case can attach (somewhat) to the acrylic. Like they say, "just follow the light"...

    Customer's SURF2 or 2x scrubber® in saltwater, where he put mustard on the algae before eating. Actually, the yellow is just lack of iron, or too much light, or lack of bubble flow. Anyway it needs cleaning down to the white Green Grabber® white strings and rocks. He can feed more now, and harvest more often.

    Vegan lasagna? Avocado dip? Spinach soufflé?

    No, just a customer's fully grown HOG3 scrubber® in saltwater. Most HOG scrubbers never grow this much, so don't expect yours to. But this one did.

    HOG1 or 1x with lots of slime, ready for a brushing in a kitchen sink. Lots of nutrients in this slime, that was removed from the water.

    Customer's two HOG3 units taken out of a saltwater sump. The top one is after a short initial growth time, and the bottom one is after a longer time of weekly cleaning, growing, cleaning, growing.

    Customer's large sump for a freshwater cichlid tank, which has two HOG2 units (one on the front of the sump, and one on the back). In this case he could have put both units on the front, but he probably had space to walk around to the back side.
