    rate your uv light

    Was thinking of adding a uv just asking what you use and do you like it.

    David,

    I have 2 UV's.

    One is the Aqua UV 54W or something in continuous use on 250G.
    Then the ATX Acrofarmers KILLEMALL UV - TMC 110W Professional Pond

    This guy I run on a MAG18 and it resolves in my case a bacterial bloom in a few hours ;-)
    Check this website and links on the page for more info.
    I use that temporary just in case, ready and running within 10 minutes ;-)

    TMC Vecton, Advantage UV Sterilizer | Pond, Aquarium, Hydroponic
