UV sterilizer

I'm looking for a UV sterilizer, anyone got a good suggestion of what brand to get and where to get it? This is the one I was looking at.

I dont see a link but IMO the coralife turbo twist is the best.

Just remember the age-old adage ..you get what you pay for..Reviews on the one you linked don't look to promising ...I don't personally know anyone with the one you linked,but i know of a couple guys (another forum) that have the turbo-twist and they love it..Keeps their tanks crystal clear..

Yep,what size is your tank again ,150?Should work..I'm not a UV expert ,just going by what i have read from other guys with it...What size pump are you getting?...I also think you can run it in line with your return line(no extras needed then ),,which i think is the best way..
