I did this as an experiment after keepiong reefs for twenty yrs w all the live rock, skimmers, sumps, ETC ETC. So it works think of aquarium store tanks, sparsely decortaed and fish in numbers,the tank has been set since july this year not one loss. The water is crystal clear and the fish show no sign of stress or problems, maybe not what we have been told or taught but truth be told after all the bells and whistles I could not be more pleased w results and the ease of and lack of major Financial expenditure, knowledge and patince is the key. Maybe not for everybody but it works!
What are your water parameters at now?

First, I never contradicted my post I CLEARLY SAID IT WAS AN EXPERIMENT, Second in the majorityof cases LIVE ROCK is always the preferred method but thousands of folks kept Marines for decades w/o acess to live rock and last Ph is stable at 8.0, dh 12, temp 74 F and low organics . Polyfilters are changed out when fully brown to dark grey every 4to 6 wks. strong water movement plus biomedia and the bacteria IN THE THREE INCH CRUSHED CORAL SUBSTRATE DO THE JOB OF rOCK. Still for most setups live rock would be the way to proceed,
