as i know the uv is usually at the outlet before going back into the tank. the inlet is still used to filter the dirt and water before the UV lights.

generally it is no beneficial but if the UV fails, usually it is difficult to detect because it is covered inside the filter. usually u need to replace it once a year.

its a bonus but not a necessity.

Sorry if anyone wanted plants from me last month. I had a hectic 2-3 weeks but back to normal now.

Currently I have these plants to give away:

Hygrophila Polysperma (dwarf hygro)
Hygrophila Corymbosa (giant hygro, temple plant)
Ludwigia Repens (no idea the common name, it is red though)
Java fern (still baby)

Let me know if anyone is interested. The giant hygro is quite huge, 10-15cm tall.

EDIT 13/2:

Pictures!

Attached Image

Ludwigia Repens (left) and Hygrophila Corymbosa (right). Ludwigia doesn't grow as fast and I just trimmed it on Sunday so it is still small. Only 1 stem to give away (tallest one) for now. Giant hygro is getting very big. I can split them up and give away at least 2-3 stems.

Attached Image

Hygrophila Polysperma (left and middle back). Just got trimmed on Sunday too so a bit short but I can trim it again.

Attached Image

Java fern babies. Still very small.

sifus, for klang valley (subang kl pj) what are the better local aquatics shops? i went to Natural Aquatics World in Subang and thought tehy are v good. Want to know opinions and i don't want to accidentally buy fish from a place with sick/dying fish again. i bought some from a place in kepong recently and then within 24 hours almost all my fish are dead
