I use Coralife Turbo-Twist UV Sterilizers. Good product, I had some haze in my tank after a couple of hours of using the corallife it was crystal clear. I have mine set up to the minimum recommended flow to kill as many parasites as possible.

Coralife Turbo-Twist is a very popular sterilizer.. alot of people use it..
If I were to by a sterilizer/clarifyer I would get one for a pond.. bigger UV and can take a higher flow rate to kill the parasites for about the same or less money.. JMHO though..

This doesn't have to go inline, it can be hot, correct ?

the only heat is from the CF bulb.. it really isnt all that hot.. but that one does have to be blumbed inline.. almost all of them have to be.. you will want something bigger then 9watts if your intrested in killing parisites.. I wouldnt go with anything smaller then 13-15watts..
E-bay has good deals.. better then the big online retailers.. Ebay search for UV filters
E-bay 18watt deal jebo
E-bay 36watt deal jebo

I guess I should have said hob. Do all uvs's have to be plumbed inline.
And BTW, I know I'm asking a lot of questions and you guys have been great with the help

Thx,

Dave

Ya know, in all my years on line, I've never used EBay. I do everything on line, except EBay. In it's infancy it was individual sellers and so many were rip offs. It may have changed, I just never kept up with it.
