Ok. I do not have saltwater but this is what I have heard:
UV is a nice luxury but is not a necessity.
The coralife turbo twist is the brand I have seen recommended.

If you decide to buy one, get it at an online store. I have seen these for double or triple the price in the LFS over the online stores price.
