How much did you pay for it Tony? Probably won't get one myself, but I always love new gadgets...

Umm another one! I mean another thread on UV filters/green water.

Yes, Rudy, they do remove cloudy water. I had green water for a few weeks (many, many weeks!!!). THe guy at the lfs told me it would take a week to clear up. When I installed the UV filter the green water was gone in less than 48 hours. The tank was then slightly cloudy/milky for a few more days and in less that a week it became 100% clear! I love it!!!

Then may be you don't need the UV sterilizer. I really don't know. Other guys in the forum may have more advise for you on that. But the UV has many other added benefits to keep your fishys healthy.

From what I've heard from others, UV sterilizer will kill bacteria what causes cloudy/milky water.
