I know UV sterilizers are used for killing algae, parasites, and bacteria in fw and sw tanks. But, would one be effective at killing salmonella in a turtle tank? Does anyone use one on their turtle tank?

salmonella is carried in turtles' bodies (or erm whatever) and it's not something to be "killed". u only have to be careful that u don't catch it from them and that's done easily by washing ur hands well after touching the turtles or any of their stuff. that's what i know, i don't know if u're talking about something else..

Sorry, I guess I could have been a bit clearer on what I was asking...
My concern has more to do with the salmonella that ends up living in the tank water and incidental contact with the water itself, more than direct contact with the turtle. I'm not trying to rid my turtle of salmonella, just his tank water in case a young child was to unknowingly stick their hand in the tank.

Would a UV sterilizer be effective at killing off the salmonella that end up in the tank water itself?
