So, I finally got the chance to set up this 9 watt UV light in my 65 gallon aquarium today, only to find out that the power head is the only thing working on this unit, the UV light is broken!!! So, basically for $40 I just get a working power head and not a UV light!! SO MY ADVICE TO EVER6 OUT THERE THINKING ABOUT BUYING ONE OF THESE UNITS FROM "CHEWY", DON'T GO TO YOUR LOCAL PET STORE!! NOW I AM STUCK WITH A POWER HEAD AND NO UV LIGHT!!!
I was having problems with algae bloom in my 36 gallon tank. Used chemicals, did water changes and changed filters often. Reduced the amount of food I was feeding and still had a green tank. A friend suggested a UV sterilizer and I chose the 9 watt, up to 50 gallons. While waiting for it to come, the 75 gallon tank I’ve been wanting went on sale so bought it. Set it up just in time for the sterilizer to come and surprisingly for the 9 watt, the tank stayed mostly clear. It made me a believer, I went ahead and ordered the 24 watt and now my water is crystal clear. Moved the 9 watt to the 36 gallon and it’s on its way to clear. Even if you’re not having major issues, I highly recommend getting one of these!
The Green Killing Machine worked perfectly as advertised. My mixed reef tank had an algae bloom to the point of not being able to see the fish unless they were within an inch of the glass. In 3-4 days the water was almost clear if green. It was an easy intank install with suction cups. I wold purchase it again. FedEx delivery was a day slow but that isn’t unusual where I live.
