    UV lights

    Hey guys just wondering your take on UV sterilizers in a Reef system, It kills the nasties I know, was wondering if it kills off single cell algae, wil it kill off the coraline spores aswell? Recently got rid of a coraline devouring urchin and am slowly getting good coraline growth back, was thinking a picking up a sterilizer next so... any thoughts
