Canister Filter with UV Sterilizer

Post by FishHobby on Tue Jul 26, 2016 9:19 am

Hello All - Anyone run a heavy planted tank with a canister filter with UV sterilizer? I am getting alot of conflicting information mostly about how the liquid fertz become toxic when you have a UV sterilizer.

Just curious if anyone does run it? See any benefits esp' in planted tanks? How long do you run the UV?

Thanks.

From the little I know the UV should be run 24/7 this will keep parasites and algae from being able to really get established and cause problems.
