    This looks like a HOG1 from high nutrient saltwater. After a few weekly brushings, the dark growth should start turning lighter, and the growth ring should fill in...

    This is a freshly baked algae casserole. I mean, it's actually the saltwater growth of a HOG3x or 3xx

    This HOG.5 scrubber® is a bit small for filtering this freshwater tank, but plenty big enough to grow fresh food for it.

    SURF4x packed and ready to harvest. Looks like two of the four bubble pathways have filled in.

    First week's growth in a DROP.6 scrubber®. Sometimes it is black slime (high nutrients), and sometimes it is yellowish (low nutrients), but this one is probably from medium nutrients.

    Green Worms! Actually, this SURF2 or 2x scrubber® is just showing an ultra rare type of growth which "fluffs up" on the Green Grabber® strings. It's not better; just different. And it needs to be cleaned off of the strings using your fingers, in your sink, because you generally don't want to use a brush on the strings (although you can still brush the white rocky walls).
