UV capable submersible filter.
Posted 22 February 2014 - 01:52 PM
While I normally don't have too many problems with the addition of salt and perhaps a little prime or slime coat product, I still occasionally have problems with fin rot with sensitive shiners, or the often challenging coastal plain blackwater type species. This filter intrigues me as it seems quite similar and as capable as my current filter, but I am wondering if the addition of a UV filter to the collection/transport/acclimation/quarantine cooler could be helpful in keeping some of the more sensitive animals alive. As an added benefit, when not collecting, this could be used in one of my regular tanks to add the benefit of running UV. I had no idea there were such a thing as UV spectrum LEDs, so this is especially cool since most LED systems require a bulb to be replaced at a fairly high frequency, while it seems like these (like other LEDs) have an extended useful life.
If anyone has any useful insight concerning running UV, I'd be happy to hear it, since it is one of very few aquarium technologies I have not played with. Thanks.
