BRS Recommended Aquarium UV Sterilizers: Our Top Picks
Aqua UV Advantage UV Sterilizers
Compact UV sterilization that is easy to install directly on your display aquarium. The unique design allows you to hang the entire UV sterilizer right on the side of your tank. There are two different models available and are generally suitable for sterilizing aquariums up to a maximum of 75 gallons.
- 8 Watt Advantage - tanks up to 70 gallons
- 15 Watt Advantage - tanks up to 75 gallons
You can feed the UV using a dedicated pump or using your return pump and both units accept 1/2" flexible tubing. The easy mounting and smaller size make them the perfect solution for AIO tanks or aquariums that don't have a sump. They are also the perfect solution for your quarantine or frag system. The simple installation means you can easily add/remove the sterilizer for intermittent use as well which is nice for just after adding new fish.
