If you have the money and want one, then sure why not? I have several tanks and have never used a uv on any of them and all is well.

180g Reef - 60g Rimless Reef -90G FOWLR- 125g Malawi Cichlids- 40b REEF- 34g Fresh Planted-working on- 20L FOWLR- working on
I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Ive never used UV sterilization on my tank. Never was too sure on the pros and cons in a reef setting, either.
A definite con, besides initial cost, would be the yearly bulb change.
