kqc7011: Like a burn you get from looking at a welding flash.
Even the reflected light will get you.
A flash or two is not that bad, but you cannot tell when you reach the point where the burn starts until it is too late.
Feels like there is about a teaspoon of dry sand in your eyes.

Worst haiku ever.

spawn73: Don't they make the fish blind?

Or does the water act as an UV filter (well, how does it work on algae then?)

If you install them correctly, they're enclosed in the hose or pump of a filter along with your mechanical/biological/chemical filtering stuff. Neither you nor the fish should ever have it shining on you, let alone in your eyes.

Snails can get in there, though, so maybe you'll have some blind snails getting in tiny slow motion collisions.

The ads were better than the article. I never knew rakshasas played guitar.

Maybe more of a lesson on how to properly install a UV light in a pond....Normally these are encased and water pumped through the case, rather than just plopping them into the pond or aquarium.

On the broad spectrum of being stupid, this is a rather mild punishment.
