What is a Sterilizer? A sterilizer will eliminate green water and control bacteria. The Advantage 2000, 8 Watt, will sterilize up to 200 gallons of fresh water or 70 gallons of salt water.
What is a Clarifier? Used as a Clarifier the Advantage 2000, 8 Watt will control green water in a freshwater environment of up to 1,500 gallons that has 50% to 75% plant coverage and partial shade.
What works best for Marine Tanks? In marine fish tanks (No reef or live rock) a flow rate matching those shown in the 75,000 or 90,000 column will be most effective at controlling fish disease.
How do I size a UV for a Reef Tanks? In salt water reef environments choose a UV that matches your flow rate per hour in the 30,000 or 45,000 columns of our chart. Flow rates in the 75,000 and 90,000 columns will destroy the planktonic food supply for the reef.

Q
Use in trigger sump
Will it fit to hang on the trigger sump?

A
This is designed to hang on the back of your display tank. If used in a sump it would create a splashing sound given that the water level of the sump is not all the way to the top.

REVIEW
I have had this running for about a week. Easy to set up, and run. The return is kind of weird, but if you have it running back into a tank or sump no problem. I have mine in my sump.

REVIEW
It's to big and the intake valve should be on the side. You will have to have your tank about 5 inches away from the wall just to make it fit. It did not meet my expectations at all for size. As far as the water clarity I noticed nothing I am Going to call on Monday and see about a return. Hope this...Read More
