Submersible UV filter with integrated UV sterilization. This innovative and flexible design is perfect to help you eliminate unsightly algae and control unwanted algae blooms. The UV bulb aids in the health of aquatic life by eradicating free floating microorganisms and disease causing pathogens in both salt and freshwater aquariums.
The SP-UV filter uses a submersible top-mounted pump to draw water past its high output and and compact UV bulb. The UV bulb is encapsulated in a unique quartz sleeve and each model of SP-UV includes a pre-filter to mechanically filter organic waste before water passes over the UV bulb.

- Top-mounted pump and UV bulb have independent power sources
- No additional plumbing needed, ready to drop in and turn on
- Eliminates free-floating algae and keeps water crystal clear

I was surprised when this 5 watt unit completely cleared my 300 gallon koi tank full of "pea soup" heavy algae. In just a few days the water was clear to the bottom of the tank and more importantly I could enjoy watching my colorful koi again! I have an unboxing video of this unit and follow-up underwater koi video on the River Life YouTube channel. Thanks Team Aquarium Co-Op for coming through again with this highly efficient unit.

I received a UV filter and the glass was broken in shipment. I called Aquarium Co Ops and they sent me a replacement that arrived in excellent shape. Thanks Cory and his team. Excellent customer service. My 55 gallon turned from green to clear in a few days.
Does a terrific job cleaning water. Wish the pump part was available separately, as burned out two units pumps because of low water. The light continues to work well in these units. Filters require daily cleaning in my goldfish tanks, so does better in my sumps. I also have two of the larger models of the same UV filter (not carried by Aquarium Co-op).
this filter completely got rid of my algae blooms...my tank is crystal clear again...service and advice was great as always...
This item came recommended by Co-op and I must say I'm delighted. I've used the standard PetSmart equivalent with little success, but this one is doing the job very well. As stated, I'm impressed and pleased. I plan on purchasing another for my 65 gallon tank. My motto is have more than you need and you'll never go wrong. Thumbs up you guys
