If you want a dsb in your dt, it surely couldn't hurt to have it in your fuge too. Still use the lr rubble and macro. That way you have stability in redundancy.

Ok for some reason my last message didnt post. You really have to take everyones advice and apply it as you see fit. And having a dsb in your sump def wouldnt hurt, but if you do run a dsb in the dt, you wont have to rely solely on the sump for filtration..

I have almost 6 inches of pfs in my DT and run a refugium with chaeto and live rock and maybe 2 inches of sand.

My trates have been hovering between 0 and 5. :-( But it;s still only a few months old so I gotta have patience. lol

Same with me they said it wasn't necessary. While I understand it isn't I now think the benefits are worth it. Which is why I am in the process of adding more sand to my DT.

my memory is really fuzzy, crs, but something about there are many ways to filter a saltwater tank. a dsb is one of them but not the only way.
