I agree,.. a Sump and Autotopoff are two nessesities on any reef tank IMHO :agree:

Motorslave is right! You could set one up now if you wanted it :) If you haven't already put a backdrop on your tank (Like those blue sheets they sell in the LFS) to hide what's hanging on the back of your tank :agree:

OH SORRY ... no its a reef tank ( baby reef tank )
You can do just fine without a sump. What the sump does is simply add water volume to the system and give you a place to house equipment out of the display tank. If you can add one, it is all the better. But, you don't have to have one. Plenty of people run systems without sumps.
