I am considering adding a UV sterilizer to my set up. My goal is to reduce algae, parasites and pathogens. Are these worth the investment?

Good ones, yes... but its questionable in most setups. Some people cant justify the $$ for the improvement you will see.

Its also one more thing to maintain, and bulbs are fairly expensive.

Well, the one I have in mind is a hang-on-back for about $60. It will easy to reach and service, and will only be a supplement to my existing filtration. I added 10 horned nerite snails to the tank today. may add a few more later if I like the results.
