I wouldn't worry about the whole natural balanced thing. I don't really see the UV as any different than injecting c02 and in some aspects simply using a filter. These are closed systems and they need assistance in many ways. To create balance sometimes means to compromise, by putting additional stems/plants in you don't want and using less light which might limit certain plants, etc. The benefits for the fish alone is worth it.
