I think you'll find most people here don't use UV's, kills too much "good stuff" in reefs.

disagree...

I would go with a better unit. For a 180 I recommend the 57w AquaUV.

Another vote for the Aqua UV. Also, it is designed for high flow, so you can plumb it between your return pump and your tank.

I like the Turbo Twists, but the Aqua UV's are pretty darn good, I always like UV's on a reef & FOWLR's, just that extra sense of security and filtration, I guess.

yes but don't have the receipt.

Hummm... The store I buy from here in town all know me so the receipt wouldn't be an issue. I would try and contact Coralife and see if they can help you.

If it is just the lamp then you can find one of thoes cheaper than a whole new unit. They are about $40.

In the end if you are hellbent on just getting a new unit because of you bad exp. or just don't want to deal with warranty issues thats understandable. But I'm just making the assumption that like most of the users here you don't have an ulimited budget.
