Hmmmmm.....I just passed on one of those Coralife units (barely used), plus a Aquarium Systems protein skimmer for $50usd total! The guy selling them was just trying to get rid of the stuff, but I didn't think I would use it. I guess I thought wrong...

He was getting out of the hobby (SW aquariums) and making room for a new baby. I think I may have to call him back to grab those 2 items. I originally went to pick up 2 Eheim canisters (2217 and 2215) that he was getting rid of for a great price.

Kills GW fast if you are interested and is about 3x cheaper than the other brands and is better than the Jebo brand.

Via Aqua brand has impressed me with the cost/quality mix, good on both which is rare, that goes for the Skimmer/canister filter, and UV's.

Good stuff, Tom. I have read that Via Aqua makes some pretty highly regarded canister filters as well...

Thanks for all the info guys, I think I'll throw the UV on a timer and run it with the lights. I'll keep an eye on the plants to see if the traces are being affected.
Thanks mr. funk!!!LOL, I knew there would be better deals out there, just to impatient to look around or wait, plus, as said I am Mr. impulse buyer. I was in BA, the unit was right in front of me... I am also a firm believer in you get what you pay for, not knowing enough about UV's, I wanted to be sure I was getting a good one.
maxwell1295, grab that stuff!

actually glen that site has everything cheaper than big als. there are alot of sites that ship to canada. THIS site has it for 79.99 then shipping is only 15 so big als would also pricematch that. shipping only takes 2 days in out area from big als. i know u are mr impulse but if u impulsed on the net instead of in the store u could have also gotten a new HYDOR ETH heater to complete the tank. and maybe a few other things aswell lol. there are soo many places online u can get stuff for 1/2 or even 1/4 of the price. i think when i go with my 46 gal after christmas i am going full blown with cannister, UV, pressurized co2, inline reactor and heater. i can get everything for under 300 bucks after pricematching online to big als. and shippping is free from them aswell and takes 2 days max. i am really tempted to order qall this stuff now but i know my parents are buying me the tank, stand and canopy for christmas so i gotta wait
