Sump ???? Help

Don't know if this is going to work but I have a 46gall bow front and I'm getting a 20 or 30 gall frag tank
I am also getting a new 40 gall sump for a great deal and was wondering if I can have the 2tanks on the one sump
Also I have another question are uv sterilizers good and what do I need to look out for
And could I get away without a skimmer
And one more ? Can I do a skimmer and a uv sterilizer in the same sump

You can run two systems on one sump but a frag tank does best on its own system. I actually have a 46 bowfront reef and in my 20L sump I have both my skimmer and sterilizer (well the pump for the sterilizer is Uv the sump the sterilizer is mounted on the inside of the stand)

It would work just fine but for the best results for a frag tank keep it on its own system without any fish just maybe some inverts for algae control that way its easier to keep all parameters consistent
