I just bought 2 UV sterilizers and need power heads for them. Anyone know what would be a good powerhead to use? I have a current and a coralife. Both applications are for tanks smaller then 10 gallons. Thanks.

It is impossible to answer this question without more detail.

Every UV is rated for a particular flow rate. You need to set the flow rate through the UV below the maximum rate. Usually you do this with a bypass from your filter.

ok that sounds like a good idea. I need to update the filter anyways, I have a whisper filter currently. Might as well just get a new filter and make it inline. Thanks.
