Is it absolutely necessary to have a light over a sump? I put LR rubble all threw my sump but do not have a light in there.

Pros? Cons?

If you don't have macro algae you don't need a light for your sump.

Is there any good supporting information because my lfs is telling me otherwise. However, they could be trying to make a sale.

Pros: added surface area for bio filtration and more places for pods. Cons: if it catches detritus or debris, they'll break down into ammonia.
