Everyone has an opinion on if you need one or not. My opinion is if you can afford one then buy one. It can only help it can't hurt, it would be another tool to help keep your fish healthy. I have an aqua ultraviolet uv, they make one of the best around. Hope this helped

I'm with Andy on this one. Not needed IMO.
