It's not about the UV by itself. That's why most people give up on it.

UV must be used in combination with lights out and very slow flow based on the power.

Also, I used heavy and wet skimming to export the dead dinos killed by the UV... and carbon to remove the chemical biproduct.

Then I added a lot of new life and fed it with phyto.

and then I fed heavily but used scrubbers and GFO to keep the water full of food, but low in waste.
