UV Sterilizers with Hang-on Filters

I'm intrigued by the possibility of achieving higher water clarity with UV sterilizers. But the vendors never seem to tell you anything about setting up. I get the uneasy feeling that most models are for use with canister filters or sump filters or things other than hang ons like the Emperor filters. Does anyone know a product that is an easy straightforward solution with Emperor filters?

I dont know of any way to attach it to your emporer. I would suggest a HOB type. You`ll just need a small pump to go in your tank to push the water through. I have a UV light but it is in my refuge return line.

Thanks! Do you know any HOB types. Also, I was thinking of getting a power head to squirt the water around down by the substrate and help get the tank cleaner, but I don't have any experience with this. Do you?
