What is UV sterilization?
UV sterilizer is placed in a SS tube of ultra-violet light that kills single cell organisms that undergo it by altering and damaging their DNA. Putting it in plastic tube is not a good idea.
Ultra-violet light is dangerous and cancerous when not used properly, but when the UV sterilizer is employed correctly and cautiously, it’s absolutely safe to you or your fish, invertebrates, plants , or corals.
Setting up of your device:
To reduce the flow, if you desire, use the controller.
Fix the push pull pipes as required. refer to video below
Fully open the regulator. Fill up the input pipe by hand with water, and place the pipe in water. Then run the included pump.
It cannot kill beneficial bacteria
Contrary to popular opinion, it does no harm to your beneficial bacteria. Beneficial bacteria aren't killed unless a number of it flows throughout the water and goes through the UV sterilizer because the beneficial bacteria colonies are always on a surface like gravel, rocks, wood, etc.
Also, it's recommended to put in the UV sterilizer off when the aquarium is cycled, so that beneficial bacteria is not killed.
It cannot kill fish
UV sterilizers are safe for fish, corals, and invertebrates.
The opening of the input pipe is only ¼ of an inch, and except for fries, it is safe for fishes as they will not be sucked in. Still, if you are afraid of the very small fishes that you may have, you can just rubber bank a mosquito net at the input pipe.
Please note, It cannot save fish that is already sick
If a fish is already suffering from illness caused by bacteria or parasites, medications and isolation are a must to save the fish because the malicious microorganisms are attached to the fish and aren't floating in the water. In order for the bacteria, algae, or parasites to be killed they need to travel through the UV sterilizer.
However, by using the UV sterilizer you'll prevent the spreading of the diseases floating freely within the water.
This will help keep the tank water healthy and give a great environment to your fish to live longer.
