I have have a UV from the start. It is not bad for a reef tank. The only con is that it will kill pods that go thru it.

Uv lights are the great debate. I think that they are beneficial. They will get rid of free floating parasites and algea spores. I`ve not had an ick outbreak or algea outbreak in over 6 years. Is it because of the UV? Not totally I`m sure,but it does help along with my feeding schedule and PWC`s and other things. But along with your LFS opinion along with mine just remember one thing. Opinions are like armpits. We have two of them and they both stink. Have a wondeful day.

Here is an after pic - the uv sterilizer worked in about three days. I also got some more crabs and a couple of sand snails. I'm very happy
