OK, now that mention has been made on these units, I have some questions for those who have them:

1) Will they do such an efficient job on algae (I've heard that they "control" algae) that my algae eating fish will have nothing "natural" to munch on?

2) Will they actually kill the ICH babies that fall off fish and then emerge and swim for other hosts? If so,

3) Does that mean you can just dump a bunch of new ICHed fish into an established tank with healthy inhabitants and not see the helthy ones get ICH? If so,

4) I'll get one. Is DoubleHelix a good one?

Thanks in advance,
Kelvin
