Product description

AQUARIUM UV STERILIZERS

UV sterilizers are used in aquariums to control infections and free-floating algae. The UV Light Sterilizes the microorganisms that can spread throughout the tank and helps to control the spread and growth of harmful bacteria.

UV sterilizers feature a germicidal fluorescent lamp designed to irradiate the water, Killing and Sterilizing harmful bacteria as it drifts by. They can be particularly useful in multiple tank systems that use a common filter or tanks that hold a lot of live rock and coral where isolating infections can be difficult.

UV sterilizers work best in conjunction with a good mechanical and biological filtration system.

WILL A STERILIZER KILL OFF BENEFICIAL BACTERIA?

The Short answer is no, the long answer is Yes, in some instances. Beneficial bacteria lives within substrate, rocks, decor and media in your filter.  This means it is not free-floating and unlikely to come into contact with the UV Sterilizer. In cases where Beneficial Bacteria does make its way through the Sterilizer it will likely be killed off. This is unlikely to be to an extent that will  have an affect on your system.
