BioCube Mini UV Sterilizer V2 5W (mfg# 36007)
Easy to use...
Easy to install in minutes in my 29 gallon Biocube. Water looked clearer in a day or two. No new algae blooms on my glass. Bad thing is now I'm having to supplement my snails with algae/seaweed! A must have for every Biocube owner.

I own a nano cube 24 (jbj) with corals and fish. About 4 months after setting up my tank, I was having a really difficult time keeping my glass clean from algaes and keeping my water clean. No matter how hard I tried, they would come back within 3 days after performing my regular weekly water changes(about 20%) and my water would be cloudy again.
These UVS combined with Chemi-pure & Purigem were the answers I was seeking for!
My corals and fish seems to not mind the changes to the water perimeters and now I have changed my water change schedule to twice a month or less.

I have ordered this because my 14gal Coralife biocube was full of green algae in the water could not even see anything inside the tank. Cleared up after 10hrs of installing. Works great was easy to install even with the tank being fully setup and running,took all of 5min to install. Just wished i took pics to upload to show the difference with the uv. I look at my lfs and for the V1 model it was around 100 and V2 was 160 so to say great deal with drsfosterandsmith.

simplistic, and does the basic job.
This UV is simplistic in both body form design, and abilities. It is not going to do that 40w kill everything kind of job, but it will cut your algae down and its slim line enough to fit into the biocube chambers it was designed for (tight, though it may be)... Works... not crazy in love with it, but it certainly works.
