does this come with mounting brackets? or is it a seperate kit. do you have the kit.
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Peter,
The UV's do not come with mounting brackets. The most common thing that people do is pick up a few large PVC clamps from the hardware store. These mount to your stand/wall and then the UV would just be strapped to them. Super handy and available at pretty much any home improvement store.

DOes this attach to the back of the tank? I have a large hang on refugium on a 150 gallon tank i do not have a sump as there are no hole drilled in the tank.
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Clark,
It does not (it would likely be too large for that as its 44" long). What a lot of folks do is pick up some large 4" PVC pipe clamps from the hardware store and use those to mount the UV to either the stand or a wall.
UV sterilizers are most effective as a preventative measure against disease outbreak. While not infallible a properly sized and set up sterilizer will add a significant barrier to disease outbreak. Protecting your system and it's inhabitants will ultimately save money, promote long lived healthy fish and increase satisfaction received from the hobby. Sterilizers can also be used as a component of an effective strategy to current outbreak. Primarily to help ensure the outbreak doesn't re-emerge after treatment. Anyone who has had the misfortune to encounter an outbreak will appreciate the importance of preventive measures against future problems.
Bulk Reef Supply carries only the Emperor Aquatics line of UV Equipment because we feel they are the best UV sterilizers available to the aquarium industry and one of the few brands that offers legitimately sized units capable of fulfilling their claims.
Emperor Aquatics UV Sterilizers are superior to the competition in the following ways:
- Sterilizers are accurately sized based on contact time, flow rate and tank volume to achieve realistic results.
- Suggested sizes are based on end of bulb life to ensure continuous results
- Suggested flow rates factor in the water clarity and UV Transmittance of typical aquariums rather than basing them on purified water.
- Unique design maximizes the effective contact time by utilizing the full bulb length.
- Emperor aquatics is trusted by zoos, universities and public aquariums including Duke University, Monterey Bay Aquarium, SeaWorld, Georgia Aquarium, USDA Agricultural Research
