This technique is simple: Keep a strong UV (such as 57 watts or more) and water pump in storage, and when you encounter ich then put the UV and water pump in a for a few weeks. When ich is gone, remove the UV and store it again. Has worked for me 5 times in a row, if I start using it as soon as any ich is seen.

Are you talking about salt water or freshwater, with regards to food microbes?

I can understand that about some of them, but others are designed for 24/7 use. Green killing machines are what I run in my tanks. Nice all-in-one unit.
