Sorry ain't been here in a while 10 hours a day is sufficient anything more than that is just wasting electricity you don't need a uv sterilizer there nice to have if you need them but as you put corals in the sterilizer will kill any natural food your system creates plankton rotifers copepods and so on

I like having uv no worries of deseases and it helps algae control you can always add plankton if desired
