Reef Delete uses patented technologies coupled with a custom handmade ultra-focused, UV-C LED to efficiently destroy the DNA inside aquarium pests.
Our unique, proprietary wavelength destroys the DNA within a target organisms cells causing the cell function to stop and ultimately the pest shuts down and naturally decays without return. All that's needed is a single long / multiple short daily exposures to cause devastating damage to the target organism.
This is achieved without using any chemicals or causing accidental damage to other aquarium inhabitants. Unlike chemical treatments, you cannot overdose Reef Delete on a target specimen. The more exposure given, the faster the organism will break down - and you can do it to as many as you like without fear of causing damage to your water chemistry! Get trigger happy!
Furthermore, if any similarities were to be drawn with lasers.. it acts in a completely different way to a "burning" laser and is inherently safer due to no reflection and in-tank use.
UV-C ensures the pest breaks down thanks to DNA damage which causes cataclysmic internal cell damage rather than burn off/cut off by the laser which can be easily repaired whereas the DNA damage cannot. See more below on maximizing efficiency. The other huge plus is being able to use it inside the aquarium to ensures great angles of attack vs the limited "safe" angles via laser too!
The Reef Delete uses extremely high-quality custom-made ultra narrow beam optics on its LED including a silica quartz outer lens - all UV-C grade for ultimate transmission. This has all been built within a dive-proof quality CNC Aluminum enclosure and is rated IP68. The special optics are what helps Reef Delete punch the UV-C deep into the target organism.
To make Reef Delete safe to use, we built-in safety features to protect accidental activation outside of the aquarium, protecting the user and accidental activation by users who shouldn't get their hands on it, such as our kids! Reef Delete cannot be activated out of water and shuts down if removed from being under way if the power button is held down.
WARNING: Reef Delete is a powerful Class 3 UV-C light source. UV-C is harmful to human and animal eyes and skin. Users must always follow the instructions and use the provided UV400 goggles. That said, UV-C Cannot penetrate through glass or acrylic well/at all and we include a UV-C Test card which has a special printed section that only glows under UV-C light so you can ensure that no UVC is escaping through your tank as well as verifying it works.. as we cannot see UV-light!
