    Here is a HOG1.3 or HOG2 in freshwater; these are better for FW because they don't have strings (strings are better for salt). Looks like it was just brushed clean in a sink, which is what you do with freshwater growth because it's so thin and slimy. Note the brave fish tail in the very upper left of the customer's scrubber picture.

    Freshwater growth, in a customer's newer HOG2 scrubber. This person has four of them:

    This customer's HOG1.3 is a typical growth amount for newer tanks and less feeding.

    This person's SURF2 or 2x shows a type of saltwater growth that occurs sometimes. It's a bright green, thin, jell-like growth that looks like a combination of slime and green hair. But it probably has some bacterial film growth too. It requires taking it to your sink and brushing under flowing water.

    Here is a customer's HOG3 in high-nutrient saltwater, and positioned slightly above the waterline. The high nutrients cause the very dark green slime growth, which is loaded with nutrients from the water (darker = more nutrients), and the air bubbles and salt spray are kept inside the case so that only air goes out the top hole.

    This customer's HOG3 or 3x or 3xx in saltwater on the display, shows it's growth above and below the waterline. Nutrients are lower in the water here, allowing for lighter colored growth to occur:

    Customer's high-nutrient saltwater causing thick dark slime on this HOG3 or 3x or 3xx. Will need cleaning with a toothbrush in a sink, often, until nutrients in the water come down enough for green hair algae to grow. Or add another scrubber to bring down nutrients faster.

    Note the left side is bare; it was above the waterline, acting as a bubble and salt spray remover.

    Customer's sump shows a typical placement of one of our HOG scrubbers® slightly above the waterline. In this position, bubbles (and saltspray if saltwater) are removed, and only air comes out of the top.

    This position also helps in higher nutrient water if the scrubber has been growing dark or black, because the water circulates around inside more, thus removing more nutrients from the water before the water exits; this less-nutrient water inside the scrubber allows for a light-colored growth to occur.
