the effects of uv light on aquarium fertilizer
 
iv got a 9watt uv sterilizer in my 50 gallon aquarium and i was researching online and saw something that suggested that uv light can render plant ferilizer useless and i was wondering if thats true

plants need fertilizer to thrive and uv lighting is to keep the algea away.too much uv is never a good thing.so time your lighting.maybe use it 6 hours a day and your tank should be fine.ask your lfs about the type of lighting for your type of tank.
