No filter needed. If your going to add mostly corals, I'd suggest getting 40lbs of Live Rock, or using at least 40lbs of Macro Rock, Base Rock.

Live sand you mean? That's all up to you in the substrate. Some use it, some don't.

NO not just sand I will have the live rock for sure a lot of live rock, right????So would I still need the sand? Just trying to keep the cost down but to still have it be a good set up.

We love the corals. We are going to a lfs in our area tomorrow that supposedly has 2000 corals in the store.

If you went with 2lbs of Live Rock per gallon, nope, you definitely would not need substrate. Actually that helps keep the system cleaner if you don't have have any, as the.powerheads keep the detrius off the bottom and it.usually doesn't collect.

2000 corals!!!!! I'm drooling already =)
