Can a 90g be done w/o a sump?

I have this big fear of flooding because of some kind of sump malfunction, etc.. and I'm very leery of getting a tank drilled, etc.

So, can it be done?

Should I go with a 75 instead?

Sure you can do a 90 gal with out a sump. There is nothing magic about a sump that makes it the only way to keep a larger sized tank.

Just means you have to have everything hang on the back or be in the tank like heaters and skimmers, etc.

You might look into a DAS set up (Dutch Aquarium System), all filters etc are in a compartment inside the tank which is camoflaged to look like the back of the tank, pretty cool for those that want intersting stands and just don't want a sump.
