Thanks, that's all I needed to know. I'll let the vendor know I'm keeping the unit.

My MO for the purchase was to really avoid ICH spreading throughout the tank when I add new fish.
I don't think that a UV filter will be very effective against Ich; since the parasite has its development stage in the substrate of the tank where it is impervious to the UV.

true, but won't it stop the parasite from reaching the substrate if I ever buy new fish that was sick? Since the sick fish will start releasing the parasites that will fall towards the substrate and my water's turnover from the filtee will start catching them and finally going through the uv light?
I'm sure that the UV will help. I'm just not certain that it will cure any Ich problem. Maybe some one else has experience with curing Ich using UV?
