Coralife Replacement Lamp - Pl Type 36 Watt For Turbo Twist 12X And Tetra® Uv-C Information




If you keep an aquarium, one of the bigger threats to it is the presence of algae, especially if you have an area where you get natural light. Algae tend to accumulate and grow quickly. When it comes into the natural world outside of bacteria, very few organisms multiply as rapidly as algae. This is the reason why it is often a candidate for possible biofuel usage in the future because it is almost inexhaustible. As long as it has enough food sources, algae blooms will continue indefinitely.

It can double its population and coverage area over night. While this sounds great in the realm of sustainable and eco-friendly fuel sources in the future, when it comes to the welfare of your aquarium system, this algae's reproductive ability is a disaster. That is why many aquarium keepers and pond owners use UV light filtration system. How to keep algae blooms minimal? How this works is that water with algae is pumped through a tube that has the UV light. UV light kills much of the spores of the algae so that instead of blooming under sunlight, they do not.

It keeps your water clear. Also it does not clog up your pumps. UV anti-algae mechanisms are a great option for your water system, whether you keep a pond or an aquarium. A good lamp for this is the Coralife Replacement Lamp - PL Type 36 Watt for Turbo Twist 12x and Tetra® UV-C from Pet Store. Size wise, it is 6.7 inch x 1.5 inch x 1 inch. Make sure that this fits in your fixture and your system. If you are looking for clear water, invest in a UV lamp today.

Comments: Overall I am happy with the Coralife Turbo Twist but the bulbs don't seem to last as long as the box says. I've had 2 out of 4 that have died before the date recommended to change them. One died after about 4 months. Hopefully that was just a dud bulb and this new one will last the full life span. When they work the bulbs do a great job at keeping my water clean. As a side note, it would be nice if the Turbo Twist housing was vented to allow cool air to run through past the bulb, I think they over heat causing them to burn out. Also having it vented would help keep the heat from transferring to the tank water.

Comments: This bulb fit my Coralife TurboTwist 6x 18w UV sterilizer and fired right up but I would have felt much more comfortable with it if the base of the bulb was stamped with "Coralife" like my previous bulb had been. Except for the box it came in this one looked generic.

Comments: When I get this equipment, my fish is very healthy, and parasites go away couple day. When you used this uv sterilizer, you should replace this lamp every 12 month or no later 16 month. The only thing I don't like is connector because they didn't provide the hose. I used this 36 watt uv sterilizer in my 75 gallon fish tank.

Comments: I bought this bulb on a whim because my Coralife 6X Turbo Twist had developed a leak (again) and I wanted to replace the bulb and seals at the same time. I installed the bulb, but since the Turbo Twist still leaked with the new seals, the bulb was useless. The nice thing about the bulb is that it comes with replacement seals and the plastic bracket that keeps the bulb centered. However, I've bought the same exact type bulb for a lot less $. Just need the same type UV bulb (socket) and wattage and it will work just fine for about a third the cost. Bulb is fine if you don't mind the price, but the Turbo Twist soaked my carpet twice in about 5 years with the older body style and the newer body style. I upgraded to the Ultralife Ultra V based on solid reviews, size, and of course not having to worry about it leaking 2 years down the road.

Comments: We inherited the UV Sterilizer in this outdoor fresh water pond. The whole system was shut off for over three months. Once I replaced the bulb and cleaned the Quartz tube the water began to clear up. In one week it went from pea soup to two feet of clear water. I think it'll clear up to the four foot bottom within another week or so.
