Sterilization removes free floating bacteria, parasites and disease causing pathogens from the aquarium system water. Ultraviolet sterilizers work when water passes through the unit and is exposed to the germicidal light being produced by the bulb inside. It is essential that ultraviolet sterilizers are installed properly to have the correct “dwell time” or exposure to the light. If the bacteria or pathogens pass through the sterilizer too quickly they will have a nice tan, but they will survive to cause problems later. Ultraviolet sterilizers are required by law in all shellfish aquarium systems to prevent cross contamination and food borne illness. Ozone can be used to sterilize water, but is much more difficult to control.
