What does the UV Sterilizer do?

UV sterilizers can be used to accomplish various things, and for a hobbyist, you must decide the one you'd like to achieve. A UV is a great way to remove cloudy water caused by bacteria blooms. They can kill algae, cyanobacteria as well as dinoflagellates and also limit the spread of harmful algae within your tank. This is a typical wish for hobbyists and is the ideal scenario for UV sterilizers. They improve water clarity all over the world and aid in the reduction of unwanted pests, however only when they are used correctly. To allow the UV sterilizer to remove anything it has to pass by the UV sterilizer and it can be submerged in the waters. If algae are developing on the rocks, or the cyanobacteria covers your sandy bed, the UV sterilizer is not able to eliminate it. It will only decrease the population of these diseases that are floating on the surface of the water. This will slow the rate of spread and growth, but it won't eliminate the existing growth on the tank's surface. It's an excellent preventative measure that is best viewed as a means of controlling rather than eliminating. Combine UV sterilization with the right management and maintenance techniques and you're much less likely to suffer from an unwelcome outbreak.

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
