This is a total fabrication from hobbyists who have no experience with using UV's. Although the use of a UV sterilizer is certainly optional, they are extremely wide spread and highly recommended by those WHO ACTUALLY USE THEM. I have never in my nearly 20 years of marine experience met a single person who used a UV that expressed any degree of dissatisfaction. I have, however, met hundreds of people who have never used a UV that say they are harmful, despite having absolutely no experience with the product.
As you probably guessed, I use UV's on all my marine systems, including reef. If I am not mistaken, OF2F does the same.
