No, there isn't. A uv sterilizer won't remove ich. There are to many of them in the water column (during that short phase) to all pass through the sterilizer.

Then wait for the cycle again.

Go buy Quick Cure, it will cost you about $9.00. Ick will not just die off because it can live in the sand. Quick cure works good and won't turn your water brown like the other brands.

do not use quick cure it can not be used if you have snails, inverts, or live rock or sand
