Canister Filter recommendation & UV Sterlizer recommenation

I have a Aquaclear 50 HOB filter for my 29g (24 actual gallon) tank and want to switch to a canister filter so that I can use an in line UV sterilizer.

I want to be able to switch over my Matrix as well as having space for both purigen and or carbon/phosguard/etc depending on my needs. Thats one thing I really like about the Aquaclear, you can very easily switchout different types of media according to your needs and whether or not your dosing.

What canister filter would people recommend (keep in mind this is my first canister filter) and should I put the UV sterilizer right after it or put the sterilizer on it's own pump and separate line?

Also does anyone have any experience with using UV Sterilizers?
