Dependable Clarifiers With Tetra Pond UV Light
These dependable clarifiers use UV light in order to combat the suspended green algae.
As algae are pushed or pumped into the Clarifier they are exposed to Ultra-Violet light that destroys the reproductive ability of single celled algae.
The already ill-disposed green algae is then pumped out of the Clarifier where it clumps and is removed by your tank’s filtration system.
Tetra UV Clarifiers will typically remove heavy algae blooms within five days and keep your pond algae-free long term.
