As for the UV, what stops the UV from damaging the DNA of the plants/fish/shrimp? Is it just that they do get damaged, but higher organisms have more cellular machinery in place to fix that damage?

I may be mistaken here (And I'm sure I'll be corrected if I am.), but I think that the reason that a UV filter doesn't hurt plants/fish/shrimp is that they don't get pumped through the UV filter and therefore are not exposed to the UV rays...
