I know, I know.

Talk is cheap.

If I never see I won't complain.

I do wish you the best of luck getting this cleared up though.

I know, easier said than done.

I think the point of the review was to demonstrate that it works, and in order to do so one would need to manufacture green water if they don't have it already...

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

Gee, J, you're worse than me. I got the point, just an observation.

Hopefully for Mitch he can get a break from the GW using this as I think it's harder on him seeing it than on the tank occupants having it.

i ihave an older UV unit, i ran 36watts, with a flow of 90gph, slow you might think but it cleared everything the water seemed to have, as well as Pseudomonas bacteri gram negative.
I have used it for years, the bulb burned out and im not using it now, although i have considered it, but for a 30g its a bit overkill.. sure makes the water clean and sparkly. Oh ya i ran that for a betta barracks of 125 units.
