    What is a Sterilizer? A sterilizer will eliminate green water and control bacteria. The Classic 8 Watt, will sterilize up to 200 gallons of fresh water or 70 gallons of salt water.
    What is a Clarifier? Used as a Clarifier the Classic 8 Watt, will control green water in a freshwater environment of up to 1,500 gallons that has 50% to 75% plant coverage and partial shade.
    What works best for Marine Tanks? In marine fish tanks (No reef or live rock) a flow rate matching those shown in the 75,000 or 90,000 column will be most effective at controlling fish disease.
    How do I size a UV for a Reef Tanks? In salt water reef environments choose a UV that matches your flow rate per hour in the 30,000 or 45,000 columns of our chart. Flow rates in the 75,000 and 90,000 columns will destroy the planktonic food supply for the reef.

    Aqua UV Sterilizer Product Review by DAVID CHEN (Posted on 2/26/14)

    Comments: I had green water for awhile before I bought this product. I did the usually things of changing the water, using chemicals, and I stopped feeding the bottom feeders (hoping they would eat more algae).
    Installed this product on a Friday, came back to the office on a Monday and the tank was super clean.
    Very nice. Have had it for 2 weeks now and the water is super clean. Not sure how long it will last, but so far for me it is worth it.

    A little too dope Product Review by DP (Posted on 2/26/14)

    Comments: Awesome product. An oversized UV, Pentair fluidized bed filter, and a good skimmer make a world of difference in keeping any of the delicate marine species out there.

    Worth it Product Review by Brian (Posted on 2/26/14)

    Comments: For those that believe you get what you pay for, and hope this money is well spent. It is in my opinion. Well built, well packaged. There are many options to this unit that make it easy to install and clean. The unit was well packaged. No fear of the light being damaged. Everything tight and secure.

    Large 2" threaded caps (to mount your hose barbs to) with O ring seals to allow any position when using 90 degree fittings. The large opening allows for easy cleaning and quick release without fighting hose barbs. the lite is well secured and sealed, including a water tight seal on the electrical cord, which is insanely long. The book says do not submerge, but I bet it could and a quick dip if something happened.

    Leaker Product Review by ARMANDO RIVERA (Posted on 2/26/14)

    Comments: I bought this unit about 2 years ago and have never been able to use the wiper feature because it leaks. I had to seal it off with some silicone to stop the leak. Not a good product.

    Aqua UV Sterilizer Product Review by Tom Lu (Posted on 2/26/14)

    Comments: I have a 100 gallon fresh water tank and install it. Work over night to me. The fish are happy it is well worth what you pay for.
