thanks for the information and opinions. My main two interests of the sterilizer in starting to look into them are algae control and pest control. Largely the goal is to prevent parasitic annoyances in my tank, as most of the algae is controlled by shrimp and fish, although that green hair algae is stubborn. Basically i want to keep healthy fish, and if this will help, then more power to it.
Planted tanks are all about shrimp.
