Ozone Generator

Anyone have a good rule of thumb on how long an ozone generator should be running per day on a 150 gal reef? I've heard from some that it can run 24x7 and others say that I should be running it only a few hours/day.

Also, since Ozone aids in water purification and has the ability to kill off parasites and unwanted impurities in the water, any ideas on how ozone affects parasites like ich???

Ozone is poison. Kills just about anything. Ozone is just an oxygen molocule, O2, that gains a lot of enery and gains another Oxygen forming O3. O3 is that smell that you often associate with electricity, like when you run model trains.
