Hello All,

I am starting a battle with Dinos and along with increasing nutrients and adding beneficial bacteria I want to run a UV to help. The main problem I have is I have very little space left under my sump. I was thinking of trying to find a more compact one for my 90 gallon or possibly an all in one version I would use only when needed in my display.
Thanks for your input!

No space on the walls in your sump either?

Nah... you can make a stand for it and it wouldn't look that bad.

If you want a UV that will last a long time and will do the job just right would be a 25w Pentair. It's long design will give proper contact time to tale care of Dinos and clarity of water.
