Hello all,

Just wondering if I should keep my UV steriliser on constantly or only at certain times e.g. new fish being introduced? I've been told it kills just as many good bacteria as bad.

Thanks once again.

UV has good and bad points; but cannot ever be considered a reliable substitute for proper quarantine my friend. Here are more opinions for you:
