?'s about UV Sterilizer placement

I purchased an 8 watt Aqua UV sterilizer, what I want to find out is where to place it in my setup?

My setup includes:
65gal tank w/hob overflow
AquaFuge pro w/protien skimmer
Mag 5 return

I also have a Rio 600 to drive the uv.

Can I pull the water out of my fuge and return it right back in there?

Thanks,
Rich

I dont see why not. You should get enough turn over in you fuge to make the uv effective. However it may destroy the pod population drawing from a small area that is probably thriving with pods. If you have a QT that would be the best place for the UV, however, I run one on my main setup.
