Rated 5 out of 5 by thumpersmasher Worked like a charm!!!
It took about a week with partial water changes to be fully effective, but my tank water has never been clearer!!! The only recommendation would be for more thorough instructions concerning the care and cleaning of the unit as well as an explanation of exactly what it does and how it works. Small potatoes considering the fact that it saved my fish and kept me in the hobby-I was ready to "splash out" until my wife discovered this unit!!! Many thanks.

I had a slightly cloudy tank for about a week. So I did some research on the 24w uv sterilizer and gave it a shot. Within 24 hrs my water was CRYSTAL CLEAR!!! Wonderful product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by anonymousFish NO MORE CLOUDY TANK
After 4 months, I decided to buy plant lights. I don't know if this caused a problem or what, but my 10g tank's water was cloudy-- like looking through white frosted glass. After several trips to PM, I ended up purchasing a bio mesh pouch to add to the filter which was suppose to promote healthy bacteria. I gave that a month, didn't help. Then I was sold probiotics, that didn't work either. After another month goes by, I did more research on the internet as I was becoming frustrated and was constantly being told it is new tank syndrome.
Then one fish I bought was slowly becoming emancipated so I bought API General Care for parasites--can't run carbon filter for 4 days...this didn't help that fish but did water change as instructed and bought this 9w GKM. Not only is my water crystal clear, but it states it kills parasites in the water too. I was ready to give up on this fish hobby until then. Unlike as a 10 year old where I cleaned my aquarium every summer and filter every month, I never had a problem. Mind you it was a 10 gallon tank with 30 guppies. Since buying this tank with 4 fish, I have done the weekly 1 to 2 gal water changes, PH Chemicals, vacuuming the gravel, etc.
Now running the Green Killing Machine, my aquarium is a pleasure to look at again. When I am ready for a bigger tank, will definitely buy one of these GKM and supplies from PM, but I will have to think twice about buying fish.
