Less maintenence as well. While you still need to change the bulb once or twice a year on the UV Sterilizer (depending on how often you use it), the Diatom filter needs to have the Diatomaceous Earth changed every use. You can find relatively cheap DE at Home Depot, but it's still a bit more messy. Nothing matches the clarity of a Diatom-filtered tank, though!
