Our PF-40 HOB with UV goes to 40 gals so yes, the PSE-1 would be your best bet.

I have some 2 gallon tanks would the 15 be small enough?

I currently use the azoo STUFFED with media, on LOW. I would love knowing my betta tanks are 'all clean'.

I also have a 6 gallon tank, is this something i can 'add on' and run every so often to just clean every so often?

Does the 15 have the skimmer, while i don't have saltwater tanks, I get that 'slime' on the water top from fertz.

Hi there--Our smallest model is the PF15-UV for tanks up to 15 gallons (5.0 wide x 5.0 deep x 7.75 tall). You can also replace your current filter with the PF15-UV as it is a dedicated HOB filter but with built-in UV sterilization. A nice feature is that the UV can be turned off and on and has a separate power source. In regards to the surface skimmer, yes it does come with one. The PF15 not only comes with a filter cartridge but also ceramic rings to promote beneficial bacteria growth. This is a 5 step filtration process: surface skimmer, mechanical, chemical, UV, and biological. Hope this helps!

Not likely. For that size, Aquatop has the CF canister filters with UV.

PSE1 would be the highest capacity at 60 gals. Our PF-UV hang-on filters with top out at 40 gallons.

Our PSE-1 is 12 inches long. The PF40 is also too big; actually all of our PFUV series are too big with the exception of the PF15 which is 7.75 inches wide, but for a 2.2 gallon tank, UV sterilization should not be needed at all. The tank should have weekly water changes. We recommend the PFE-1 which is only 3.25 inches wide and can be dialed down to have a nice safe flow for the tank and offer plenty of filtration capacity.
