Hi all, so I had I big white spot problem in my tank. My regal had it bad and lost my flame angle to it. So I got two 55 wats uv system form idol marine and the inner plumber in me kick in and with in two hours it was installed on Friday morning last week.
I can't believe how quick it's working my regale tang is looking a lot better, the water look a lot cleaner. I'm very happy with the result.
Thanks idol marine money well spent.

How big is your tank? Glad to hear the regal is looking better... I also have two 55 watts on my 400L system and I definitely think they help!

The fish would look better by now. The whitespot cycle should be at or near the end of the infectious stage. Stage last 3 to 7 days. If fish was infected before Friday last week, and the parasite starts out at 25 to 60 micron. You cannot see the first days. By the time you would be able to see the fine sand like spots on the fish this stage in the whitespot cycle must be about halfway. Fish should all be clean by now or looking a lot better.

Hope the UV helps with the hatching of the whitespot.
