If you used both methods it would probably happen a lot faster.

I have used the turbo twist uv and it did the job. It was 9 watts also. Took about 4 to 5 days.

Just a question.. But will a liquid algae fix saluting work the same? I've used it a few times. Mostly in freshwater.. Had a full green tank put an algae cure in it and it was gone in 5 minutes.. And just used some in my saltwater and the slime algae was gone in 2 days... Much cheaper than a sterilizer.. But does it have any effects or downfalls? Which is the better deal? 10$ bottle or 250$ sterilizer?

I was looking on eBay. Just triggered me tho. Why are they 40 on eBay and 250 in stores or online elsewhere.
