That what I thought. And it seems like it would make the most since on paper. Wet dry would turn everything into nirates and isnt that the main job if a fuge to absorb nirates? But I have little experience using sumps...but I have a few more days to gather info before I make a choice. This is helping thanks in advance

Wet dry filters work just fine for FO. If you use bio-balls, just rinse them in tank water every 6 months to clear them of debris. Live rock in your DT will help with nitrates, as does water changes. Nitrates do not have the same impact on fish as they do on corals. Adding a skimmer would help.

There is more than one way to skin a cat.
