There are some pics.
So I went and dug out the UV
sterilizer thing I was given. At least that is what I was told it was.
It is a filter container with nothing in it and the shown in the pic, light fixture on top. See the pics.
The side of the unit says EcoSystemsAquarium.com 18" wide
the top light hood says Top Aquarium Series 11.25" long
the bulb says 13W 6700K 5.5" of bulb, + ~2" bulb base
There are 4 divisions inside the thing, from looking at it left to right is a 3 inch wide space, then one about 11", next one is about an inch wide, then two inches. there is the thing behind the 1st section which looks like it holds something. Even though I guess it goes into the tank not sure about how and what to hook up there.
I am sure every one here knows about what this is. A filter? anyone have an actual name for this thing? How can I use it?
The light does not work and I am not sure if it is the inline rotary switch or the bulb. I will check this out with a new bulb and or switch if needed.
The price for these is CRAZY, but I am sure they come with all the internal stuff and media. But hundreds of dollars...really?
So is this a great thing to have and use?
And if so how and with what, lol I feel dumb as a rock. Like a fish out of water,
Little holder looking thing on the back/ note: after looking at it again I see that is the part that goes in the tank, there is a lip on the back of the thing to allow it to hang on the back. I am learning
Light hood can't find anything on this Name/brand...
Light bulb /underside of little hood
This is a 15G column tank used right now, and the filter thing is too wide for it column tank is 13.5" and the filter thing is 18" wide.
If I were using it on a different tank I am thinking of making SW
, ~30" wide then would this be able to be used, and in the mean time if I can get the light part to work, can that be used elsewhere on the tank, like over the present AC HOB
filter on the column tank for Chaeto? Which bulb do I need if it is on the filter and which if it is really a UV
or if it is on the tank to supplement the lighting?
