I have a tempered glass tank I can't drill. My tank has only been up 5 days. I am still cycling it. No sump, because I have been told not to run overflow boxes because they can overflow unto your floor in the right scenario. Read Saltwalter for dummies 2007 edition. More than one way to set up a tank. There are YouTube videos of canister only reef tanks growing soft corals. That is my plan. I have the link in my Patience is a virtue thread in getting started.

I will be adding a protein skimmer and uv sterilizer.

Canisters can be very successful if they are maintained constantly...
