Ultraviolet sterilization is a proven, dependable, and effective method for controlling and eradicating algae spores, bacteria, and protozoa present in the water column. UV sterilization destroys disease-causing pathogens as water is pumped slowly through the unit.
It is very important to use the proper flow rate through the UV Steriliser depending on whether you want to eradicate protozoa which requires a slow flow rate compared to eradicating free-floating algae.
Cleaning the quartz tube of slime every 3-6 months and changing the UV bulb once a year is essential to ensure the optimal performance of the UV Steriliser.

The recommended tanks size is only a guide line and not to be taken literally due different tank inhabitants, lighting, flow rates, maintenance plans and feeding habits.
