It's been a few years since I had a SW
set-up, but I sucessfully ran a 30G FOWLR
with no sump or refugium; the biggest problem I had was the accessories hanging off the side of the tank detracted from the looks. My future SW
tanks will all have at least a sump so I can hide all the technology and keep the primary tank as attractive as possible. Ultimately it comes down to budget & space versus look of the tank.
I'm sure that when you get closer to setting up the tank (or begin purchasing the accessories) a few posts in the right forums will provide you with a wealth of information.
Hope you enjoy your stay here.
