I don't. I see the merits for it, but I feel with a deep enough sand bed and my rocks firmly wedged deep into the bed, that the sand alone will distribute the weight. I could be wrong but i've never had a need to. With the bigger tanks I probably should and probably will on the 200.

What would be the pros and cons of making a sump for my 32g tank? Could I make a sump out of a 10g?

It's the new 46g thread.

A sump is pretty darn useful. Check out this article.

I would start with soft coral. Zoa's are my favorite as they are colorful and come with an added bonus, they close up and stay closed when something is wrong with the water, basically a little warning system.

well, if its just for a few days, 1-4 days, id just use an automatic feeder.

if its for longer thanm four days, ask a neighbor to feed them.

Be sure that neighbor knows saltwater. I have heard to many horror stories. Anything from to much food to the wrong topoff water to leaving the lights off to save you some money....yeah right.
