First, a 304 is a bit small for a 75; I have a pair of Fluval 405's on my 75. Your 304 is a generation behind in Fluvals.
May I ask why you need a UV
sterilizer? No real need to purchase a canister equipped with one, as there are many, many kinds of UV
units that can be easily plumbed inline with your present filter.
I would suggest, however, that you add an additional canister. Using a pair of filters is helpful in many ways, the most obvious is the ability to stage filter cleaning; one one month, the other the next, which helps with bacterial, and thus aquarium, stability.
If you are bent on having a canister with built-in UV
, I believe Eheim has a model with that feature.
