How have you guys set your's up? I just bought the 25W Aqua Ultraviolet and the thing is like 20 inches long, plus they don't provide any mounting brackets.

So its looks like I will need to strap it into the cabinet, buy some pvc elbows to run the vinyl tubing into, and call it a day. If there are any suggestions on better ways of installing one into the return line from my sump, please reply.

I have mine in my return line. I just cut my return line and have it going in and out back to the main. I use the turbo twist though.

The snails eat the algae, they also eat fish waste, clean the glass, stir the sand and are a great part of my clean up crew.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
