For over 35 years, Aqua Ultraviolet has been providing water, pond, and aquarium solutions by creating and manufacturing the highest technology UV Sterilization & Bio-Mechanical filters units on the market! 

UV Sterilization technology allows your water to be clear and clean of harmful microorganisms by disrupting the DNA or RNA of single-celled organisms. In this blog, we’ll talk about some benefits of using a UV Sterilizer for improving and maintaining a safe and healthy reef environment for your saltwater aquarium!

What is a UV Sterilizer?

Let’s start off with the basics, a UV Sterilizer is a piece of equipment that houses an Ultraviolet Bulb, which emits UV rays within the 254nm range. The Ultraviolet light in a UV Sterilizer will defend your water against free-floating algae, parasites, bacteria, viruses and other free-floating microorganisms that may be harmful to your aquatic life which are oftentimes too small for our eyes to detect.

How do UV Sterilizers benefit my Reef aquarium?

Since UV Sterilizers will disrupt and destroy any harmful free-floating microorganism in your water, it also means that any free-floating algae in your tank will get taken care of by your UV Sterilization unit, resulting in a crystal clear, disease-free, beautiful tank for your aquatic life!
