I've been using the Red Sea AquaZone Deluxe 100 mg-hr..I'm not all that impressed with it. When I do it again I'll buy the controller and ozonizer seperate.

Oh, its for my 120 gal sps tanks.

I have a red sea 100 deluxe on a 360 - way too small.....Whatever you get - get the next size bigger than you think you need. Don't just byu one cause the price was right like I did.

Check out enaly at www.ozone.enaly.com
I have the red sea 200, but may get a larger one that uses a spark gap in the future.
Make sure to get an air dryer!

go with the red sea 200mg model-if you get the deluxe model it includes everything you need-the only thing you would need to get is a air pump-mine has worked great-got it hooked up to a 150-running it through my skimmer-(Aqua medic)-everything built into unit-(controller-probe plugs right in)

Your controller will only control the built in ozonizer, When that takes a dump you have a useless controller.

Its kind of like buying a TV and DVD combo..when the TV takes a dump your stuck with a huge DVD player...I've always told myself I wouldn't buy combo items like this. Its not the smartest thing to do, yet I did it anyway. Live and learn

Currentlu use a Sanders 50mg model. Works great and small unit if size is a consideration. Used an Ozotech in past also. It worked well also, but unit is pretty good size. Size was the reason I had to get rid of it when I changed tanks.

I use an aquacontroller to control the unit. I like this instead of the built in units ( ozone plus controller).

I agree if it dies the complete unit need fixing or replacing latter of the two I think..... I understand it but what is the worst thing; I am out $200. For the stuff I have and $$$, this is still a small price...then again the question is "if" it breaks. I could say I should have extra pumps, skimmers, lights etc "if" the others break...Which I do....:D

I know I am not using ozone 24/7any longer....Pods whee going down to zero....only run (1) day per week.

How long do the ozonizers last?
All of you that use Sanders were did you get them from?

mburnickas
From only running onetime a week you do not see any ick or anything?

nope, I got the ozone since I got tired of running QT. I was running O3 for months but after reading online etc, you do not have to run O3 24/7. You can if you want and be ok but I chose not to. Plus my skimmer was producing less. Darker skimate but less.

I have a 25mg model, it crapped out on me about 1 month ago, I cleaned it like I was instructed but it still didn't produce ozone, even though the little green light was showing its working. I shipped it back to germany. I am not to please after spending $146.00 plus shipping on a ozoner and have to send it back to germany fo cleaning and repairs....

I clean the probe about 7 to 10 days max. You will see the ORP go up.

Ozotech maybe then Aquamedic.

No contest IMO.

Too important and potentially hazardous addition to buy a cheaper alternative. My experience with Red Sea wasnt good at all. I'll leave it at that...

Dosage depends on what your goal is, clear water maybe as low as a 50mg, ORP control at least a 100mg.
