I am new at this aquarium thing. I have a green algae bloom. I submitted a few questions to be answered BEFORE I even attempt using this thing. I don't think it clips to my specific filter for one thing, but am waiting for an answer to my questions. And another...does it sit ABOVE the water or in it? I would have to empty my tank some. Please help!
The filter I was using didn't have enough of a lip for the clip to latch onto. We couldn't use it and have to return the product.
in my 29 gallon tank, this product has almost eliminated my green water problem. It has taken some time. Don't expect the water to be crystal over-night, but it works well.
Great product! Had trouble with my water in my aquiraum it was green. Given advise to use the green killing machine UV light. It has done wonders crystal clear water. Better the day one water with no fish in aquiraum yet. I recommend highly
I have a 10 gallon tank that turned a murky green despite regular cleaning and filter changes. When googling the problem I figured out that it was most likely an algae bloom and I needed a UV filter to take care of the problem. They can be so expensive but I took a chance on this one and it has worked like a charm! Easy to clip right on my current filter. Hardest part is being PATIENT and let it work. In less than a week, my tank is clear! Amazing! I agree with some other reviewers that it would be nice to be able to tell definitively that the UV light is on and working. There is a very faint indicator light on a box along the cord and I’m assuming that if it’s off then the UV light has burned out. Not sure so I’ll keep an eye on it long term and will update my review if I figure that out. In the meantime I will do what others have done and put this on a timer to preserve it now that the algae is under control. Bottom line is I’m very pleased with this product.
