Yeah that's a better idea would look better tucked away

Bummer. Maybe re-auction it. I think you'd be happier with it underneath. I got tired of looking at my HOB skimmer, before I had a sump.

Hey Honda, I have never used one, mainly because I've always had a reef and heard that they really weren't good to use on one. Don't know if that's true or not though.
First ever aquarium 8 years ago was my 135 tall, never even had a freshwater tank, and I went reef right off the bat. I just thought that a UV sterilizer would strip beneficial stuff out of the water, having corals.
I think with fish-only systems that it would be beneficial though.
I'd like to see what the consensus is on this topic.

Without the deionization unit on it (RO/DI), it may still have some TDS. You could probably add a DI unit to it though, it will give you purer water.

Oh Ok i see well I'm going to take a pic of it to see what it actually has and if it's just the DI part I will buy that an just add it, also it has to be next to a sink right?
