    I hooked up my 15 watt UV filter late last night and this morning the water looks like it is gone! TOTALLY clear. What an enormous difference! Less than 12 hours too. These things are truly amazing!

    It is a 130 gallon community tank. Just finished cycling it so I will get more fish now. I have it hooked up to a 160 gph powerhead - LOTS of time in the UV filter with that slow rate. The filter is rated at 450gph.

    10 neon tetras
    3 mollies
    2 cory cats
    2 algea eaters
    1 pleco (very small)
    1 khuli loach

    No codes - free shipping if you go over $150 though. So add a few more things and you get free shipping.
