    I have a Mega Watt sterilizer running on my 90gal. tank with a 201 powerhead. Is the powerhead too fast? I have it set on the slowest rate it can go. I have to go to the LFS today, so if someone could let me know about the meds and the powerhead I would really appreciate it. Thanks!!!

    Do you have directions for that UV?
    I would think it would have flow rates.
    If not, give me the full name of it and I'll see what I can find.

    If you are a super geek that loves math, there is an equation for this apparently, check this out.

    Holy cow Matt. Math was always the last thing on my "Things to do list."

    The U.V is a Coral Life Mega Watt Sterilizer. My sis gave it to me and bought me a new bulb. I don't recall the wattage though. (Kinda a welcome to the hobby thing)
    If I had to guess I would say that it is a 9. I know, guessing ain't gonna get it! I will let you know.

    Well Coralife has a 9 watt 'Turbo-Twist' now.

    Perhaps these flow rates are the same for yours:
