mystery equipment - please help identify

I received some free stuff from a woman whose man (who was the fish guy) left her.... We did not even know if some of the stuff related to the fish field but what the heck... it was free.
Please help me identify what these are and how to use them!

That first one looks like a tube that you make deionized water. I dont know for sure but that`s what I think.

melosu58 - how would you use it? do you have a brand name that might be similar? what would you need to know more?

yep little beads and I can't tell you more since the ends are on so tight I am afraid I would break it to get it open.

The thing at the bottom looks like a brine shrimp hatcher base to me. You cut the bottom off a 2 litre soda bottle, then screw the top of the bottle into the hatcher base. There should be a place in the base to attach an airline tube.

#1 looks like an air dryer for use with a ozone generator.

#2 is a Radio Shack 1.75amp/12Vdc unregulated power supply. [Sorry... couldn't resist.] Kinda thinking if #1 is what I think it is, it might be used with the ozone generator? Maybe?

#3... no idea.

The first thing looks like a bacteria cartridge... you filter water threw the tank.. and it supplements more beneficial bacteria towards the tank.. in case you move your tank or drain it..

I was going to say some sort of bacteria "media" like bioballs for the first one.
I guess one question to ask would be was it a FW or SW tank they had?
Actually, does the first one just go back into it's self or are there other tubes or openings?
