UV Sterilizer ??


Recommended Posts

Many people say "no UV" in reef tank...as many say "yes". I say yes as I think benefit of killing bad guys outweighs detriment of killing good guys. UV will help with free floating form of ich but do nothing for ich on fish.


From the research I've done and my veterinary training, I believe ich is always present and shows itself when fish become stressed. I don't believe tanks are ich free and then come down with it when ich fish brought from LFS...I believe stress of introduced fish triggers decreased immunity and ich proliferation. But that is only one idiot's opinion.


I think it is a good precaution to take. Watch the bears come out of the caves.
