I just purchased the 25W Aqua UV sterilizer for my 90g. I have a Mag 9.5 as my return pump in my sump which is currently throttled back significantly with a ball valve to slow the return water, so I have some power in reserve.

How do you recommend I plumb the UV sterilizer sgiven these 3 options?

1) Tee the return line and run one line to main tank and one to UV unit and dump exit from UV into stage one of sump.
2) Tee the return line and run one line to main tank and one to UV unit and run exit from UV back up to the main tank (most difficult option).
3) Run main return line directly through UV unit and straight up into the main tank.

Thanks

Thanks, that's what I intended to do, but then got to thinking that maybe that wasn't what I should do. I have all the parts to do option 1 already (i.e. ball valves, tee, etc) so that's what I'll do.
