I don't think a uv will help with that- do you fave plenty of poly fibre in your filter.

A site I have found to be quite informative regarding uv:

Thats the scary part. The tank has just been cycling with just water. No sand, plants, or fish. This just appeared last night. It was crystal clear before.

Do you have a bubbler/air stone in there. It looks like either micro bubble or particles. If it's particles, the filter floss will clear that in a few hours....
