I have the big one. Works great for keeping water clear. A bit unsightly and I don't think they kill much other than algae in the water.

You are better off with an external one that has no more than 3mm between the sleeve and the housing and also no more than 30 gph/watt for green water 20gph/watt for killing stuff and 10gph/watt for extreme killing of almost all bad stuff.

Here this will help.

I have heard great reviews about them, I know lots of people who have had them work for algae blooms.
