Ultraviolet Sterilizers

Shop the LiveAquaria® Ultraviolet (UV) Sterilizers category for aquarium UV sterilizers great for use with both freshwater and saltwater aquariums. Harnessing the cleansing power of UV-C light, aquarium ultraviolet sterilizers offer unique benefits from water clarification to effective management of various water-borne microorganisms including free-floating algae.

When used in conjunction with proper fish-keeping practices, ultraviolet sterilizers offer a great way to enhance aquarium water quality and clarity as well as help protect aquarium inhabitants from potentially harmful microorganisms.

Ultraviolet sterilizers employ a special fluorescent lamp that emits cleansing UV-C light within their chamber. Aquarium water pumped through the UV chamber is exposed to this UV light and is irradiated. Free-floating microorganisms in the passing water are affected by the UV light and are no longer able to multiply. With regular use UV sterilizers can help manage water clarity and water quality issues as well as curb growth of microorganisms such as bacteria, algae, and parasites.
