UV Sterilizer in a Quarantine Tank

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone uses a UV sterilizer for their QT? It seems to me that this would not be a bad idea since the whole idea of the QT is to ensure that no pathogens make it into the main tank. Also, QTs are usually much smaller than the main so the cost would not be too bad.

Any thoughts? Success stories?
