Pond uv sterilzer on aquarium

I am setting up a 120 gallon tank right now and have a submersible uv sterilizer in my current aquarium and have been looking at options for my 120 gallon I had a green water issue in the past and solved it with a uv sterilizer.

When at my lfs today I asked if I could put a turbo twist on my cannister. I had seen a thread on this before but can't find it now, and person at the store told m it would push to much water through, that he would suggest a pond uv sterilzer instead. The bulbs are cheap and you can hook it on your return hose, its good for up to 600 gallons and they are not that expensive I had looked at other uv sterilizers that were really expseive with the replacement bulbs. Just wondering if anyone has done this and what their experience with this was.

I havent done it myself but i don't see any reason against using a pond sterilizer in a large aquarium. And depending on the canister you use I'm sure you can find a spiral steralizer that can handle the water flow. Just do some price comparisons based on gph capacity and pick what you feel fits best for what you need it

That would make sense. Haven't you heard? We make yogurt, not sense.
