I agree....only use it when you need too...during blooms (of any sort)

I have a major algae problem with my tank right now.........

I wrote to Algone Corporation about the use of a UVS and this is what they said:

My e-mail to them:

I still think I'm going to use a UV Sterilizer, just until the tanks clears...then turn it off. I don't want to kill the good bacteria too.

Would you agree?


This is their reply:

No worries about the "good" bacteria, as they are not free floating. The organism to be killed (sterilized would be a better word) have to go through the tube and exposed to the UV light.


What do you think?????
