The purple thingy tube can be removed from either side, so I guess it could be a thru-flow type thing.
The originating household had both salt and fresh water tanks. The salt tanks had corals and anemomes (sp)... so no clue.
How would one go about hooking up this equipment? What would be the benefit? I currently have a 29 gal (4 in sand base, 30 lbs live rock, pistol shrimp, clown, pixie hawk and one damsel, filtration for a 55 gal and a skimmer for up to 60 gal) but my bio load is so low I don't think I need any of this... But hoping to get a 55 gal very soon...
Do I just store this stuff or get rid of on Craigslist to others who are at that level of tank work?

I would not hook it up, if you don't know what it is.

I'm pretty darn sure that thing is an air dryer, and if you hooked it up and flowed water through it, who knows what it'd do to your tank.

#3... no idea.
I agree on all 3.

As I mentioned before, #3 seems to be a brine shrimp hatcher. See: SanFrancisco Bay Brand Brine Shrimp Hatchery Kit

I think the first is a deionizer. I was looking at one today as another water option and the first thing I thought of when I saw it was this picture.

The 1st pic, with an airline attached, is an air dryer for an ozone generator. You get more production and longer life out of an ozone generator when you pull dry air thru it. The media is blue when it's new and turns pink as it absorbs moisture. Take the media out, bake it, it will turn blue again and you reuse it.
And this should confirm it.
Red Sea Air Dryer

I think you got them all now.

I also moved this to Hardware/Equip
