Ultraviolet Sterilizers for Saltwater Aquariums - Marine Depot
What is an aquarium UV Sterilizer? An Ultra Violet (UV) Sterilizer is a water filtration device that uses an ultraviolet light bulb.
Ultraviolet sterilization from an aquarium UV sterilizer is an effective method for controlling and eradicating algae spores, bacteria, and protozoa (i.e. ich) present in the water column. UV sterilizers destroy disease-causing pathogens as water is pumped through the unit.

UV Aquarium Sterilizers - UltraViolet
The aquarium UV Sterilizer is a water filtration device that uses an ultraviolet light bulb to kill microscopic organisms that are free floating in the water. Parasites, viruses, algae and bacteria (good and bad) are the type of things that are "killed" after passing through the ultraviolet sterilizing unit. UV sterilizer devices can be used on swimming pools, in liquid factories (think beer) and in the home aquarium using an aquarium UV sterilizer. Some large water purification centers employ some sort of UV sterilization on the outgoing water. These sterilizer units are also sometimes used in outdoor ponds to help control algae growth and they seem to do a decent job.Aqua Ultraviolet’s UV Sterilizers have been used by public aquariums, importers and hobbyists alike to control bacteria, protozoa and parasites, reducing the spread of fish disease. In a confined environment like an aquarium UV and filtration are essential. The primary benefits UV sterilization provides, however, are disease reduction and the reduction of nuisance algae. Ultraviolet radiation can be very effective in reducing free-floating algae, bacteria and microbes in general, certain parasites while in the free-swimming stages of development, and other suspended microscopic organisms (Fenner, 2003a). Seahorses are prone to a number of serious bacterial problems such as Vibriosis, and a properly installed and maintained UV sterilizer can be invaluable in reducing the incidence and spread of such infections. When properly used, UV sterilization can reduce microbial levels in the aquarium to the low levels normally found in the wild or below (Fenner, 2003a).GET ON THE FREE LIVE 'PLANTED TANK 101' WEBINAR & GET A 50% OFF COUPON!

Never really had UV Sterilizers on my planted tanks. It's not to say that they aren't useful--I am sure they are at killing things you don't want in your tank. I certainly don't think you need one, though. One thing I didn't mention in this video is about internal parasites--I wonder if they could be killed with an Ultraviolet Sterilizer. Please excuse the ugly tanks, as I am in the middle of doing a plant order.
