No problem. I'm going to be moving in the spring and when I do I'm thinking of a DSB

I don't think they are needed either. I didn't have one but still had undetectable nitrate. I had about 3 pounds of live rock per gallon though.
I don't think they need a 40 breeder to be effective. Obviously the more area it has the more effective it will be. Also, the toxic gas is kept at the lowest layer, only way to disturb it would be some kind of burrowing goby. If you read the link it explains how it works. I also don't have one and don't think they're absolutly needed. Just a different way of keeping a reef.
