Vecton was recommended to me when I was looking for a UV steriliser, seems ok so far Mine is for tanks up to 400 litres and is about 2 feet long for the whole unit, it fits inline with the filter tubing but it has to be mounted on something, it can't just 'dangle'. They do them for smaller tanks, obviously, but I'm not sure how big that would make the unit. I was quite surprised by the size of mine, I was expecting it to be smaller for some reason. Easy to fit, got it from Charterhouse Aquatics and they gave me a spare bulb for free It does make starting up the filter a bit of a pain but that's more to do with my hoses being too long really so the filter is having to shift a large head of water which is made worse with the UV unit in the middle holding more water - if that makes sense
yes as long as you don't exceed the lph through put the nano would be ok. The 200 would be better and I seriously doubt you can over UV a tank. I'd go for the one that can run at the speed of your filter's return so it fits inline without the need for extra pumps.
I must have dreamt it that you could over UV a tank.
Ive been searching for the LPH rates for the Vectons with no luck. You would'nt know where I can find them would you?
Is the flow rate through the device more important than the size of the aquarium? What I mean is, because I have a filter for up to 300l would I need a UV sterilizer for a tank that large?
Theres quite a price difference between the Nano and The 200 so I want to get it right. I'd rather spend the extra ?20 and get something that works than get the cheap option and for it to be useless. Having said that if the nano will do the job I'll save the cash! (quick economics lesson for you )
Sorry for seeming a bit slow on this. I like to make sure I understand what im doing before I spend the baby's shoe money.
