Fluval FX UVC Inline Clarifier Unit 6w

The FX UVC In-Line Clarifier quickly and easily connects to all canister filters to eliminate suspended bacteria and algae for a clear and healthy aquarium. With unique CCFL technology, the FX UVC bulb runs cooler to last 2X longer than most traditional lamps. It attacks green and cloudy water by applying powerful, DNA-destroying light emissions at a precise 253 nanometer wavelength. This natural process is chemical-free and will not affect beneficial, surface-dwelling bacterial colonies that are already established. Say goodbye to cloudy and green water forever!

FOR USE WITH ALL EXTERNAL FILTERS - ADAPTERS INCLUDED

MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR CANISTER FILTER: ADD A UVC CLARIFIER

Ultraviolet clarification (also known as ultraviolet sterilization) is a proven technology that has a long history of aquarium use: its benefits range from controlling and eradicating suspended bacteria, suspended single cell algae, and various unwanted pathogens, to improving overall water clarity. The most effective wavelength for these purposes is 253 nm, which falls squarely into the UVC spectrum of light. While using a UVC Clarifier does not replace important aquarium husbandry practices such as regular partial water changes, regular filter maintenance, and the quarantining of new fish, it does add an extra layer of filtration that cannot be obtained otherwise.

Suspended Algae 

Placing an aquarium where it provides the best visual appeal is essential to enjoying this great hobby. This can mean, however, that some natural light may reach the aquarium at certain times of the day. This can quickly lead to suspended algae blooms, where nothing is seen in the aquarium other than green water. The use of a UVC Clarifier will not only rapidly clear green water, but will also effectively prevent it from developing at all!

Cloudy Water

Cloudy water can develop as a result of one of several factors: poor quality tap water, which may contain dissolved organics, excess feeding, poor tank maintenance practices, insufficient filtration, and more. Suspended bacteria and other organisms, which feed in the water column, exploit the nutrient-rich environment and begin to proliferate. The result of these organisms feeding and rapidly multiplying in aquarium water with these conditions is cloudy, milky white water. The use of a UVC Clarifier quickly eliminates suspended organisms, clearing cloudy water and preventing it from developing again in the future.

Purchasing New Fish

While quarantining new additions to your aquarium is unquestionably the best thing to do, it is unfortunately not possible for everyone to do so. At a minimum, always make sure to observe the aquarium from which you plan to purchase new fish carefully. Make sure that all the fish in that tank are healthy; if you see any signs of disease, make sure to point them out to the store staff and do not buy any fish from that tank.

Unfortunately, even when every precaution is taken, the addition of new fish can still lead to the introduction of diseases into your tank. Some symptoms may only reveal themselves later, once the new organism has been added to the tank. For this reason, preventive action is recommended.

A UVC Clarifier helps control the spread of unwanted bacteria and, depending on their life stage, parasites. Should an outbreak occur, it is usually less severe when UVC clarification is present. Furthermore, the presence of a UVC Clarifier helps buy time for an effective treatment to be found and applied. Having a UVC Clarifier does not mean you won’t have disease outbreaks, nor does it mean you don’t need to treat them should they occur. Rather, having a UVC Clarifier means that some disease outbreaks may be avoided, and that the chances of successfully treating disease outbreaks when they occur are higher.

While an aquarium filter already mechanically, chemically, and biologically filters water, a UVC Clarifier adds an extra layer of filtration that cannot be obtained otherwise. To protect your aquarium from green and cloudy water and make the most of your canister filter, purchase the Fluval UVC Clarifier today!

Quickly and easily connected to most canister filter setups, the UVC In-Line Clarifier eliminates suspended bacteria and algae for a clear and healthy aquarium. Ideal to use in conjuction with the Fluval 306, 307, 406 and 407 series filters.

Coronavirus impacts 

Dear customers,
 
Thank you for your support in this unprecedented time. 
 
A lot of industries have been effected by the spread of Coronavirus worldwide and sadly we have not been an exception.
While we are packing and sending out your orders as usual, the demands on Australia Post due to isolation and online shopping are beyond anything experienced before.
 
During this time and to speed up the delivery of your packages Australia Post have taken the initiative to no longer scan barcodes for tracking. However, even with this initiative there are still significant delays to both express and regular post of up to 21 days. 
 
We appreciate your patience during these trying times and understand the frustration of delays, being a small Australian business we are incredibly grateful for your support.
 
If you have any questions about the process of your order from our warehouse, please do get in touch as we are happy to update, however any packages that have gone to Australia Post are beyond our control.
 
Stay safe and happy fish keeping.
