However, I must also caution that UV sterilizers should only be used continuosly on FOWLR systems or sparingly on reef systems. I had mine plumbed on a reef system and would only run it when I had signs of infection or increased polution in the water.
Can you please expound on the reasoning of this a little? Something to do with feeding the corals? My main reason for having one in the past and future is also a sign of a fish infection (ie: ich). Its hard to remove a fish and QT it from a reef... I've never done it because I've run a UV.

Thanks,
Ryan
