  • Help!

    Hey guys, I need some help! I am on day 3 of a pretty good bacteria bloom, cloudy water and just overall no good. Does anyone have a UV sterilizer that I can run for a few days to clear up the water, hopefully before Thanksgiving. Please let me know!

          Yeah just got some fresh carbon on line the other day, and have currently killed the lights. I don't really have a place for a polishing pad. I don't run filter socks or anything like that. I had a customer tank that had this issue many years ago, 24 hours with a Sterilizer on it and the problem was gone. This is probably a result of dosing nitrates too much too quick, but I don't know. thats the only change to my tank.

            I had an old UV sterilizer that I rigged up to hopefully work, its not a pretty sight but hoping after a day or two running that it can take care of the issue. Fingers crossed! Click image for larger version
