    Hey guys so I'm thinking on putting a uv light on my tank for a little more insurance on my fish I have been running my reef for over 5years and never had one but now I'm running a lot more fish in my tank then befor do you think it would be a good investment I have 65 gal mix reef with about 9 fish

    I never used one but it wouldn't hurt to add it. I'm more conscious about adding more equipment to keep the power bill down.
