Thanks. If you don't mind, which UV sterilizer brand name are you using?

It is perfectly fine to have both running on your system. You really don't need to run the UV sterilizer all the time really only when you have disease's or an algea bloom in your tank. I run both of mine 24/7. With the protien skimmer and the UV sterilizer working all the time your water will stay alot clearer. I hope this was enough info. If not you can PM me with more questions. :)
Just a little thing, I've never seen a saltwater with an air pump. :D
