I've been looking at this one too:
Aqua Medic Helix Max UV Steriliser 55W | Aquatics | Charterhouse Aquatics -


and I like that the Eheim ones have a built in reflector, but they're not rated high enough for my tank  :heyyy:

No.  I wanted to go down the route of erradication, so fallow tank (ich can't survive without a fish after so long...so they say), and one of the following to kill it with the fish in a QT: copper; chloroquine phosphate, hyposalinity, is supposed to be 100% effective at killing it.  In which case, no need for UV. 

Secondly, UV also kills a tonne of plankton, and I run a deep sand bed, to allow for as much plankton as possible, which feeds the corals, and reduced nutrients.  I wanted to keep it as natural as possible.

Not working out, as I had hoped.  Having a rethink at the moment, but really not sure what to do.

I've read to many posts now about tanks being fallow for more time than stated and ws came  back, it seems to be something that will always be there. A matter of managing it :(
Chloroquine phosphate works really well, my grammar and chromis are back to full health, shame it's not reef safe, maybe one day someone will come up with a reef safe med.

Still only a couple of spots on the RG, and nothing on the clowns.  Starting to doubt it is/was ich, as normally the spots drop off after a few days, then return with a vengeance.  Seems odd that the Anthias was covered, then the RG got some spots, but nothing else?

Any other theories anyone?
