Compared to the HOG2 and HOG3 which look the same in size, the HOG1.3 is meant for situations which don`t have nutrient or algae problems (a new tank, for example). The large inside space of the growth compartment allows for lots of build up of algae over a long time, and the relatively low power 2 LED light grows algae at a nice comfortable pace. So this model is great for aquariums that are already in good shape, or new aquariums which don`t have problems yet. It also will not require a light-reduction cloth placed over the LEDs to get started, like the stronger HOG2 might, or the HOG3 does.

This is a hand-built Hang-On-Glass® (HOG) Upflow Algae Scrubber® (UAS) with a Green-Grabber growth surface, for glass or acrylic 1/4 inch (6 mm) to 5/8 inch (16 mm) thick. This is the typical thickness range for most aquariums, and larger sumps, however you should measure yours to be sure. If your tank uses thin 1/8" (3mm) glass such as many low-cost 10 gallon aquariums do, this filter is not recommended because the magnets are strong enough that they might crack the glass.

No electrical parts go inside the aquarium; only air. And the air bubbler is already supplied (it`s sealed behind the growth surface), so you don`t have to get an airstone. The bubbler is simply vinyl air hose that has been cut lengthwise, and with cross-cuts, to form little flexible segments that are both adjustable and open-able to allow for easy cleaning. This HOG1.3 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 and install your own plug from a hardware store.

Comes with 2 red (660 nm) 3-watt LEDs, which are attached to a heat sink inside the cover. The LEDs will give the aquarium or sump a slight red color at night when the aquarium lights are off. You will need to get a timer so you can run the LEDs for up to 22 hours per day (not 24). The LEDs never needs replacing.

The HOG1.3 growth surface 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 brush the algae off of the growth surface and the bubbler with a toothbrush. No hard scraping is needed; just brush it with a toothbrush. The Green-Grabber growth surface is permanently glued to the inside cover using epoxy, however a few of the Green-Grabber particles may dislodge during the first few cleanings, which is normal. Cleaning the growth surface, bubbler, and the inside cover takes about a minute with a toothbrush.

Specifications

  • Dimensions: 6 5/8" wide x 8 3/4" high x 1 1/2" thick (16.6cm wide x 21.9cm high x 3.75cm thick)
  • Recommended Water Level: ~7" (17.5 cm) of water to operate in
  • LEDs: Two red (660 nm) 3-watt LEDs
  • Requires a standard air pump that can pump at least 2.0 liters per minute (.07 cfm), which medium-cost air pumps can usually handle. Pumps that say they can handle 2 or more airstones/outlets, or pumps with 2 tubing attachments instead of one, will usually be needed. You can have as much air as you like, however; 10 lpm pumps are no problem.
