A jar of beautiful ornamental fish is certainly very seductive, but algae disease fish breeding process will inevitably encounter problems, then many people will choose to tank equipped with a germicidal lamp, I would say to you germicidal lamp effect and the matters needing attention.
The working principle of 1. germicidal lamp
Bactericidal lamp does not need to be converted into visible light, 250nm-260m wavelength can play a very good bactericidal effect, this wavelength range can destroy the chromosome, play a photochemical action. Therefore, the use of bactericidal lamp, it is best to match a low power pump, try to make every drop of water after a long time sterilization lamp irradiation, so that good results.
2. bactericidal lamp will not harm nitrifying bacteria?
Germicidal lamp can kill bacteria, nitrifying bacteria floating in the water, however, has made a significant contribution to the water filtration because will be attached to the filter (biochemical ball, biochemical cotton, ceramic beads), will not be irradiated on the water flowing through the germicidal lamp! Of course, there will be a small number of nitrifying bacteria that have not yet been implanted, floating in water, but that little part of the loss is not enough to shake the balance of the fish tank ecosystem.
3. bactericidal lamp need not be used for a long time
The germicidal lamp doesn't need to be used for a long time. It is enough to maintain the ecological balance of the fish tank for a few hours every day.
If you have a timer, you can access the timer to use, to avoid forgetting to close. Because of the special material of germicidal lamp
It is determined that the service life of the germicidal lamp is not as long as that of the ordinary fluorescent lamp, and the bactericidal efficiency will be gradually increased after half a year
Reduce, then recommend to replace the new germicidal lamp.
4. pay attention to the standard use, strictly follow the instructions
The use of germicidal lights must read the instructions carefully, the wrong way of operation may lead to skin or eyes
Injured or cause death of ornamental fish. General purchase of sterilization lamp products details page or product packaging
It will be explained in detail. Please read carefully to avoid injury.
Precautions for the use of germicidal lamps:
First, please put the germicidal lamp in the right position. When the lamp is used, the sterilizing lamp must be completely placed in the dense part
Closed space, not directly into the fish tank, otherwise it will lead to the death of ornamental fish. Generally speaking, it can be placed at the bottom
In the part filter or upper filter box, be sure to place the cover on the back cover to light again, so as not to cause visual damage
