Algae Scrubber
 Hang-On-Glass .5 Upflow Algae Scrubber
This is a hand-built Hang-On-Glass (HOG) Upflow Algae Scrubber, magnet version, for up to 1/4" (6.25mm) glass or acrylic. The HOG.5 is designed to handle this much feeding per day:  0.5 Frozen cubes, or 5 Pinches of flake, or 5 Square inches (31 square
 cm) of nori, or 1.4 grams of pellets The number of gallons or liters of water does not matter. If you feed more than this, you can get multiple units; multiple units are preferred because you can clean one per week, and because youll always have one filtering
 while the other starts growing again after a cleaning. Multiple units are also good for backup. The magnets attach the outside cover to the inside cover, through the aquarium wall, and can be used on glass or acrylic up to 1/4 inch (6.25 mm). Not more. No
 electrical parts go inside the aquarium; only air. And the air bubbler is already supplied, so you dont have to get an airstone. This HOG.5 will run on both 120V and 240V, and comes with a 10 ft (300 cm) power cord with a U.S. plug. If you require a different
 plug you can get an adapter at any local hardware or travel store, or online, or you can cut off the U.S. plug install your own plug from a hardware store. Comes with 3 ft (90 cm) of vinyl airline, but requires an air pump that can pump 1.0 liters per minute
 (.04 cfm), which most low-cost air pumps can handle. Make sure to put the air pump above the aquarium so that it will not drain any water if it shuts off. Comes with one red (660 nm) 3-watt LED, which is attached to a heat sink inside the cover; the cover
 gets warm on the outside. The LED will give the aquarium a slight red color at night. You will need to get a timer so you can run the light for up to22 hours per day (not 24). The LED never needs replacing. The UAS will need to be cleaned every 7 to 21 days,
 by removing the inside cover, disconnecting the airline, and taking the inside cover to the sink so you can scrape the algae off with a toothbrush. The screen is super rough Green Grabber white texture, and is permanently glued to the inside cover with epoxy.
 Cleaning the screen and the inside cover takes about 30 seconds with a toothbrush. The HOG.5 comes with a 90 day warranty. Warranty is for replacement or repair only; not a refund. Costs for shipping back to us are covered if you are in the U.S. Costs for
 shipping back to us are not covered if you are not in the U.S., however we will pay for shipping back to you. In either case, you will need to ship the entire unit back to us before we can ship a replacement. Warranty is limited to repair or replacement, and
