"Well I can report that things have gone from good to excellent. Since my HOG2 was installed, ive used 3 different test kit brands, all of which have shown Zero on nitrite, nitrate, phosphate & ammonia (once the level came down). My goal of having ONLY the hog2 as filtration is now achieved other than a poly filter in the sump. It feels like im not reading it right or something is going on I dont see. After years of keeping fish and having the usual problems, its all perfect now. Absolutely fantastic! Test readings are s.g. 1.025. Ph fluctuating around 8.0 - 8.4. Phosphate, ammonia nitrite & nitrate zero. I feed some of the scrubbers algae on a veggi clip to the yellow tang. Hope you folks get the same results as ive got using the santamonica scrubber. All that i can only guess is all down to the HOG2 as its the only thing ive used differently from before and had nowhere near the success im having now. Most if not all corals have doubled or quadrupled in the last few months" -- Centralscot on the scrubber site:
"Algae scrubbers work! [HOG1]" -- The Corner Reef:
"[SURF2] All Algae is disappearing from the fuge. The mangroves started to die. I have not ran the numbers yet but I am sure they are way down. Still running high cap GFO, started slowly reducing run time on reactor. Still have Cheato ball in media bag but it appears to be shrinking" -- INXS on PBMAS:
I have been very pleased with my HOG3. When I set up my current 95 gal reef my intentions were to keep it simple and low tech. I have been involved with this hobby in some form or another for more than 25 years and my favorite tanks have always seemed to be the ones with the least equipment. -- Jeapa on the scrubber site:
"The product [HOG.5] works greatâ€¦ I will be purchasing bigger models in the near future" -- Bruce Ashcroft
"Yes it is working [HOG.5], and in a few weeks I am going to post on [our forum] about my experience with it" -- James DeSantis
"Our SURF8 that we have on our customers tank is crankin' every week, 1/4 gallon of harvest each week. The tank is being fed 3 to 4 cubes a day, and has about 140 pounds new pukani rock." - Damon Buehrer, Aquatic Treasures Reef Store.
ok I was getting nothing but slime for a while so I decided to complete clean the scrubber with my pressure hose to get the white back completely clean to start over Id say about 80% of what was there was removed so Its been about 4 weeks with the light on about 16hrs a day and heres what I have I notice bubbles being stuck on the back I don't know If thats good or bad Im finally getting hair to grow but I afraid If I clean It now I will get black growth again and lose the green algae my nitrates and phos are through the roof 50ppm nitrates and .65 phos I had a good skimmer running and I removed It because I think It was removeing nutrenits before the scrubber could get them since I took the skimmer offline the glass gets cover in algae around every two days or so with the skimmer it was weekly here are the pics what should I do
i wanted to get a drop2 to try out in my 29g. there is no sump, so it will go discreetly in the display somewhere. I currently have a jebao pump in the for wave action. would this cause in problems as far as it working properly, having it close to the surface?
ok showing my progress this is 10-11 days grow finally getting some good algae growth one thing I notice while pulling the algae out I good amout stays and is really attached strong heres what I pulled and gave a tooth brush should be double next time
