Ok thanks all for the advice! One reason im avoiding a sump for now is the tank is a standard 125 set up in my 10x10 bedroom and as its set up my stand is just that a stand i cant really get under it setup or maintain a sump! For this reason i was hoping the skimmer and the live rock along with the hob
filters or even a canister would be enough! Not sure about stocking yet but im going to keep it light and my biggest fish will be a tang or a trigger like a blue throat! I probably wont have more than 5 fish to keep waste down!
