product highlights

Makes fighting green water easier. UV radiation is effective in controlling bacteria, yeast, molds, and other pathogens, in turn controlling algae growth. Water flows in direct contact with the UV lamp, intensifying its function of fighting green water. In addition, it can be hidden behind ornaments in your aquarium, cutting back on tubing around your tank.

AA Aquarium Green-Killing Machine Internal Aquarium UV Sterilizer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 125.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from unbelievable! This piece of equipment saved me giving up on my fish altogether. I had green water for 2 months. I tried everything from anti-algae chemicals, 75% water changes, blacking the tank out for a week straight, nothing worked. I put this little thing in the tank, took about 2 minutes to set up. Less than 48 hours later and the water is crystal clear. I mean, better than I've ever seen it before!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievably Amazing!!!!! Wow. This UV Sterilizer is seriously amazing. I have owned aquariums for approximately 10 years and have never really ran into any problems until recently. My 5 month old 54 gallon aquarium was cloudy and I couldn't seem to solve the problem. I did large water changes and still the milkiness remained. I dosed the tank with 'acurel f' to clear the water (which I would NOT advise as it made my fish extremely stressed and ill when it advertised it to be safe). Finally I came across this UV sterilizer after some research. I came to the conclusion that the cloudy, milky water in my tank was actually a bacteria bloom. Maybe from feeding the fish too much. Even though this product is advertised as the green killing machine (algae) it rids tanks of bacteria and disease too. I put this in my tank (the smaller version) and in less than 12 hours my water is clearer than it's EVER been! Clearer than day one! Wow! I don't know how I went this long without one. I highly recommend and have attached pictures of before (with the bacteria bloom) and after (crystal clear).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Review of the green killing machine I bought this a few days ago after battling cloudy water for a few months. I thought I would try this since I have tried everything from water changes to chemicals and nothing worked.I put this thing in and Video taped each day so if it did work I could share the video. And to my surprise it worked great. Here is the link to video if you want to see it for yourself. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WeXedJtomBs&feature=youtu.be

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well but... I have a number of large goldfish in a 36 gallon bow aquarium. Even with frequent 30% water changes, filter changes, etc., the water was always slightly cloudy. Not algae, but a grayish cloudy look, from a bacteria bloom. My goldfish are really beautiful, and I didn't want to reduce the number of fish. I tried this product and was amazed. Absolutely crystal clear water in exactly 72 hours. Plugged it in Tues. morning at 10 am, and by Friday morning at 10 am, the water was so clear, the fish appeared to be swimming in air. The pump assy. runs silently. As an experiment, I plugged the unit's power supply into a timer. It turns the unit on every morning at 8 am, and off every evening at 8 pm. I found that running just 12 hours per day, continues to maintain the water in crystal clear condition. I'm with holding 1 star in my review because of the UV lamp life. Many people are complaining of getting just 2 or 3 months out of a UV bulb, and they are very expensive to replace. Best price I've seen so far is $19.00. I'm hoping that since I am only running the unit 12 hours per day, I'll get at least 6 to 8 months of life out of a bulb. The manufacturer says a bulb should last 6 to 9 months, but it seems that's more the exception than the rule. If I get 6 months or more of bulb life, the product will definitely earn that last star from me. Only one annoyance that was easily solved. The controller that sticks to the outside of the tank with 4 suction cups, doesn't hold very well. It fell off after two days. I just smeared a 1/2 drop of silicone sealer on each of the 4 suction cups,...problem solved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST HAVE I have a full grown yellow belly slider in a 46 gallon tank. Even with very diligent weekly partial water changes and monthly rock vacuuming, the water went totally green at some point, and no matter what I tried nothing helped. I even completely started over with completely removing everything out of the tank and rinsing the rocks. Water was green again within 2 weeks. I was so disappointed and frustrated!! I felt desperate to try anything, so I invested in the 9w UV sterilizer. OMG!!! What a difference it made. It did take 3-4 weeks for the water to become crystal clear, but I did notice daily improvement. Water has been clear for a couple of weeks since, and I am confident it will stay clear. I am so glad I invested in the UV sterilizer. Well worth the money!!! If you are struggling with green water, or any water clarity issues, I would recommend the UV sterilizer. The people at my local PetSmart said that the sterilizer is safe for my aquatic turtle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from when nothing else works to clear water, this will The uv lamp definitely works, my tank had a terrible bacterial bloom, I could barely see my fish. I tried everything, water changes, fresh ammo-carb filter media.. nothing works like this. My only problem is the suction cups on the control box will not adhere to my tank at all, it keeps falling to the floor, and when my system arrived, the led light was not functioning and I had to order a new lamp. I also contacted the manufacturer he promptly sent me a new control box also since there may have been an issue with that too he said. So when my lamp and control box arrived on the same day, it was the control box after all. It has a small led light that stays lighted to let you know the lamp is working. So, finally.. 7 days later, my tank is almost crystal clear. The lamp and control box have been working without any mishaps for a week now, and I do have a spare bulb now just in case. I was told to let it run for a week after water is clear, then only run it for a few days every couple of weeks as needed to increase life of the bulb and keep water clear. All in all, it really worked great once it actually worked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works!!! I have been keeping aquariums for over 40 years and have never had a green algae problem like this one. My entire tank was a sheet of green. I have a 110 gallon planted freshwater tank (including sump) and was concerned about pushing the parameters of the Internal UV Sterilizer w/Power Head since it stated up to 100 gallons. I figured out how to assemble it and had it up and running within fifteen minutes. Six days later my aquarium water is almost perfect. Some have said the flow is too slow. Remember, the slower the flow, the longer the water stays in contact with the UV light. This product does exactly what it was designed to do. Two fins up!

Will this work in a 3 gallon Aqueon Crescent aquarium?

Asked by: Payne
HI AA's 9 Watt UV GREEN KILLING MACHINE would technically work in a 3 gallon aquarium, however it would seem rather large to keep it in full time. Suggest to use the UV to clear up whatever issues your tank may have, then remove it and use it as necessary so you may enjoy the beauty of your tank.
