I would say you are waaaayyyy maxed out on your stock. How are your sailfin and yellow tang getting along in the 44G?

They all get along fine, but the maroon clown some times chases the clarki clown.

8O That is a lot of fish in a 44ga. You have more fish in there then I do in my 72gal reef. Hope it works out. Anyhoo...the petco here had the same special on the yellow-eyed tang. It is a great deal but I have sworn off buying any fish from petco long ago. I am by no means suggestion you get it, (you are already overstocked) but anything you buy from a large chain store (or any new fish for that matter) needs to go though a 6-8 weeks QT period before you add it to your main. Every SW fish at my local Petco has some type of mality, most have ick. Good luck in what you decide and Welcome to AA!!

The UV will definitely be helpful in helping to prevent ick, but if the fish already has ick it won't help in that respect. If the fish doesn't have ick, the UV will help fight off parasites and such. Just make sure you have the proper wattage to kill the parasites.
