So i have an eheim 2217 and i am trying to find a good UV sterilizer. Ideas?
Im planning on purchasing a second eheim 2217 as well, would i need a second sterilizer?

Also, what are the benefits of a RO system? I'm planning on purchasing discus - would this be a good idea, since they tend to be sensitive to water parameters?

(My aquarium is an 85 gallon).

Bump up.

I know these are kind of "general" questions, but i would like to know what's the best sterilizer to get, and if RO would be helpful with discus.

UV units

My choice was to go with Aqua UV classics (purchased 4 of them) with wiper and while they cost more than most I like it. As to needing a second unit for dual filters, (imo) no, as long as the first one was sized correctly to the installed flow so the dwell time gives you the kill rate.
