Hey everyone need help with UV flow rate because I know it’s vital for actually being affective. Currently I have a 9 gallon tank and bought and 8watt UV sterilizer. (Aqua brand)
At what flow rate should my pump be?
I don’t wanna go to fast but don’t understand the math for it
Hey guys, so I know very little on UV Filters and was recommended to using one to help combat my cyano problem. I'm not too sure what they do other than it killing algae/bacteria that passes through it.
Are there pros and cons to them?
Will I have to feed more to keep nutrient up or anything...
I've been battling Dinoflagellates for months now and I've had enough. I already tried a blackout and that kept them at bay for 2 weeks but they came back eventually, I've tried increasing nutrients and that hasn't changed a thing, so I've given in and decided to plumb in a UV Sterilizer. I'm...

Hey, long time member but I never felt I hand anything that I was particularly proud of. I've kept the same Biocube 32 for 9 years with success, but I never was able to do more with it due to the size limitations of the tank. Back in late Jan, I got the go-ahead to upgrade the tank, I still...
Hey all so I’m doing a closed loop system for my new UV light. I need to put a pump in my 125 gallon DT. The pump is 8.2”x3.5”x4.13” I need to use that to feed the UV sterilizer then it’ll flow back into the tank. Has anyone had any success hiding/aquascaping this kind of item within your DT...
