I have canister filter that has uv built in but that is for a larger tank, I use it with a ball valve to turn down the flow on a 30 gallon. For outbreaks of green water I put a green killing machine in a tank and run it till the green water is gone and then remove it. You can get ones to run inline if using a canister filter. If you want one built into a small filter appropriate for a 6 gallon then I don't believe they make one. Typically they have little benefit for a small tank where you can literally remove all the water with a single bucket.
