Wow that's all the proof I need for uv I have an 80 gall that looks like the before pic no matter how many vacs and pwc or how big the pwc this green water is hard to shake

My biggest worry is that when I'm dead my wife will sell my aquarium gear for what I "SAID" I paid for it.

I got a UV when I first got my tank
I still had algal blooms
Then the bulb reached the end if it's very short useful life and I found out what it was going to cost to replace it
Now I try to figure out what I am doing that is causing my water to start to get cloudy and stop doing it before the algae gets ahead of me
By better managing the tank I am saving money on bulbs, saving money on electricity and am not pumping more heat into my already warm tank
