optimal rate of flow thru UV sterlizer

Recommended Posts

After Bob Fenner's good talk last week I decided to dig up my old UV sterilizer and use it again on my 90 gallon setup. I was wondering, what is a reasonable flow thru a UV sterilizer? Mine is 24 inches long with a 24 watt blub. Anyone have a ballpark figure on a good GPH rate?

 

Thanks!

AquaUltraviolet has (for years) had a PDF sizing chart for fresh and saltwater aquariums that you could download. Take a look:

I'll even attach it to this post (just in case they ever move it and kill the link).
