    Customer's HOG scrubber® taken out of a saltwater sump. This one would be a HOG3 or 3x or 3xx because the wet side is the same; the difference is in the lights, which you can't see here.

    Some HOG scrubbers grow mostly on the strings, and some grow mostly on the Green Grabber® white rocky textures (dark slime does this), but this one is growing on both.

    HOG2 or 2x scrubber® full of dark or black slime. Slime usually fills in first, and the slime grabs the bulk of the nutrients in the water while the grabbing is easy. But brush that slime out often, because it does not hold on well and will let go and flow away.

    This customer's HOG2 or 2x scrubber® in a freshwater tank was growing very thick on the Green Grabber® white rocky surfaces (left photo), then the growth started growing on the glass where the red light shines through (right photo). So when the HOG is removed from the glass, the fish and snails can eat live algae from the glass, and if you keep the HOG tray in the water too, then the growth in it can also be eaten.
