UV Sterilizer, FW use 4/29/12 Hi Crew, I'm looking for your opinion regarding the usefulness of a UV Sterilizer on a 240 gallon freshwater Discus aquarium for the purpose of parasite, algae and disease control.

about the running costs (regular cleaning, new UV tube each year) then by all means add a UV steriliser, and some problems, like diatom blooms in the water column, should reduce or vanish. But as a general addition to a freshwater aquarium, you'd be better spending the money in other ways. Cheers, Neale.>Freshwater aquarium owners can also make their work easier with a UV-C sterilizer.
