I have two reasons.

First, my buddy has been running his 120 with only live rock for 8-9 years now. He's also doing this without any fuges or skimmers and has a beautiful tank.

Second, Bills....bills .....bills. Once i get caught up, I will start adding more stuff.

are you saying he has no sump? Or just that LR is all that is in the sump to filter his tank?
