    I am having some serious problems with ICK and have done a couple of 50% water changes and it keeps coming back, i was wondering if a UV sterilizer would kill the bacteria, parasite that is currently plaguing my fish, and if so would anybody be willing to let me borrow theirs for a week or so...
