I was wondering if anyone has had any adventures with them good or bad. I just put a UV
sterilizer in my 75 and it looks a clearer, not saying it was the UV
but it happened after that. but i also put in a circulation pump.
I'm kind of suspicious of them in a combined unit. I have a separate internal UV
unit and one in a canister filter. The water does look a bit clearer after the internal one was added. The canister UV
is high flow and I'm not quite convinced it is well designed. I do think a well designed UV
unit shouldn't do any harm and may have some benefit. I've still had fish infections so I don't think they are a magic sword however I only run mine 8 hrs a day.
