UV Sterilizers

So I've been looking at these lately. And before I go and buy one, I wanted to get some feed back from everyone. I have a 29 gallon. With a diy sump. But I want my water to be clearer. Anyone have suggestions or anything? Thanks

Before you spend money on a UV sterilizer, try running some carbon for a couple weeks.

I actually just set up my sump today. Running a lot of carbon. So if this doesn't help than uv it is I guess.

Try aqua ultraviolet they make some of the best sterilizers out there. Their bulbs last for 14 months also which is longer then most.
