Pond use or home use?
Pond u get natural UV already, but helps with green water n some bacteriacidal effect
Won’t clear diatoms or string algae

New tank .. best not to use until cycled. Some medications will require u to off the UV light

UV light also diminish effect with use. Most manufacturers will recommend bulb replacement every 6-12 mths
For home use

To kill bacteria

How big is the tank? Frankly for the price of most sterilisers I think it’s an overkill

The cheaper option is if u have sump and just throw a submersible Uv light in the last sump .. these are usually only $30-50

you can add a sponge filter.
the key feature of any filter is to grow beneficial bacteria. secondary feature is removing the poo.

WC is a must as too much NO3 built up will also kill the fish.

as you tank is small, remember to fill up as much water as possible.
don't let too much water evaporate.
i did use WC for the tap water when i do water changes, 1 bottle last me a year.. usually i will keep the water at least one night before..
i don't know though if the WC have expiry date or shelf life..
also use API stress coat..

baby brine shrimp is the best but hard to find and troublesome to "brew".
if not, try those frozen one.
I think can feed this too.

Yup, but it only helps abit as it’s a slow grower. Does add some greenery n it’s pretty hard to kill like Anubias
