Does running a UV-C 254nm sterilization light completely wipeout my growing and dosing of live tetraselmis phytoplankton?
Is it completely counterproductive wasting time and effort if I ran both UV-C light and dosed tetraselmis?
This is smthg I want to see for myself.... so I'm running a simple experiment.
Wondering what will happen if UV-C 254nm sterilization light is exposed to live tetraselmis phytoplankton over the course of hours or days.
LIVE tetraselmis from my own home brew station:
Seeing if/when the tetraselmis crashes into clear brown water
Live sample (edited, originally had a gatorade bottle but switched to glass crystal per a posters suggestion below):
Starting the sterilization exposure. Exposure going to be non stop 24/7
