Aquarium UV Bulbs

A UV sterilizer can be an effective tool with controlling bacteria and parasites. It is also very useful in pond applications to control free-floating algae. UV sterilizers are a form of mechanical filtration utilizing a germicidal fluorescent lamp that produces light at a wavelength of approximately 254 nanometers. To keep UV production as high as possible, it is recommended to change out UV sterilizer bulbs every 6-12 month. After 6 months the bulbs will start to lose their effectiveness.
