Ok Uv sterilizer stays.Yes I seen the post about algae scrubber sounds like a good thing to me cuts down on cleaning glass plus ...
im one of those guys that doesnt UV, but i agree with pasfur, its good to do. as for algae scrubbing i can also agree with his take. i have seen 1 scrubber in person, and never had any personal experience with one.
i use a sump with chaeto algae, my lighting is on a reverse cycle to lower pH swings and my tank is algae free, besides alittle growing in my sump which is fine by me. as for not having to scrape the glass, i believe this will be part of your maintnance regardless. a magnet scraper is quick and easy and about once or twice a month you have to get in there and manually scrape some coraline.
IMO the best peice of equipment you can get is a skimmer. one thats worth your money and of quality.
