    DROP.6x with growth pulled out, from a saltwater system. The DROP models without strings can be used in fresh or salt. And the growth of course can be fed to the fish.

    Dark slime in a HOG3 or 3x or 3xx from a saltwater tank. Once again it's important to remember that dark slime filters the best. It holds the most nutrients, but must be brushed cleaned more often (3 to 5 days).

    This is not mud. It is living, growing, macroalgal slime that has consumed nutrients out of the water. The worm-like things are Green Grabber® strings attached to the bottom of the Green Grabber rocky walls.

    Everyone clap for Cladophora (species). This can grow in salt or fresh, and tends to be a bit thicker in salt, as shown here. This could feed several large fish for a few days.

    Although black slime absorbs the most nutrients from the water
    (see http://algaescrubber.net/forums/show...he-best-filter)
    it can cover up weak LED lights easily. But the strong 660nm deep red LED lights in
    DROP scrubbers® cut through the slime to enable growth on the other side of the box.

    Here is a small HOG1x scrubber® on the front of a large saltwater sump, growing some live food to be fed later. The red light on the glass does not matter because the sump in in a cabinet.

    This SURF8 or 8x scrubber® has dark slimey strings in both compartments. This is from saltwater (strings are best for salt) and shows how the dark slime is only on the Green Grabber® strings, and not the rocky side walls. Some growth just prefers strings, and some prefers rocky walls; none of this growth would hold on to a waterfall screen very well, however.
