Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a proven method that uses short wavelength ultraviolet (UVC) light to kill or inactivate unwanted microorganisms. Many drinking water systems use this technology.
The Green Killing Machine (GKM) makes fighting green water easier as it is internal UV – that is, a UV system that you simply drop into your tank for a full UV protection. UV radiation is effective in controlling free flowing bacteria, yeast, mold and other pathogens, in turn clearing up green water without any chemicals. In addition, the Green Killing Machine’s design allows it to be hidden behind ornaments or plants in your aquarium, eliminating potential leaks around your tank.
Other benefits of GKM by AA Aquarium:
- 5-minute installation without any tools
- Our Sealed UV Bulb has water flow in direct contact with the UVC lamp for increased efficiency.
- 4 sizes that fit most aquariums: 3 Watt internal, 3 Watt Clip-On (20 Gallons), 9 Watt (50 Gallons) & 24 Watt (120 Gallons).
