UV Sterilizers

Recommended Posts

Currently looking at getting a UV steriliser for my aquarium as I am still not happy with the overall water quality.

I have found a few online from our various sponsors but wondering if anyone has any experience or recommendation with these.

I decided to go for ones with a higher wattage as I thought it would be worthwhile to kill diseases in the tank and not just the algae.

Here are the three I am looking at:

BIOPRO/HOPAR AQUARIUM & POND UV STERILIZER CLARIFIER FILTER LAMP 36W: $92

[h=1]Sun Sun CUV-155 UV-C 55Watts UV Sterilizer for Aquariums and Ponds: $98[/h]

AquaNova UV 36w $199

at this point it seems the Sun Sun is winning for its price and higher wattage... but I have heard good things about the Aquanova so maybe it is worth the extra money if it will last longer?

UV is very hard on plastic. If your hose joins are plastic but not UV stable, they will fail in 12 months. Many of the cheap brands aren't.

Do you have a recommendation? maybe go for a lower wattage but a better brand? I know the bludgeon get pretty good reviews and go for about $150 bucks for the 9w model
