I don't think the UV would cause That. Could be that the hair algae is out competing the chaeto for nutrients causing the hair algae to grow and the chaeto to decline. Either way as long as stays in the refugium and not in the display it's all good.
I've lost chaeto before with no changes to the tank at all, doing good for a few months and then just die.
