    JBJ does also sell a 28G setup for about $100 more. Their other larger tanks seem to be sold separately not in an included set. One of my concerns is that they both come with hoods and the lights are installed inside the hood. I think the lights can be retro upgraded but at a cost. So, are the lights good enough for LPS? Will the evaporated water affect the lights inside the hood? LED lights sold separately can get costly but I know that you get what you pay for.
    I love the clean lines of the rimless tanks but I don't have thousands to spend.

    The lights on those hoods should do ok for softies and LPS. Do a search on you tube for the biocubes should be some good info

    As I'm doing my research for this build I am not even sure I need a sump for this size build. I know it would help with the water quality if I had a sump. Still up in the air about it

    You def know more than I do but with a tank that size I think you can get away with a large HOB. I have seen many vids on doing it this way for a nano tank.

    A nanno can easily thrive if stocked correctly and water change weekly :)

    I'm on the verge of putting together either a 20 long or 30 long as an upgrade for my clowns, and using a 10 gallon tank as a sump. While you don't need a sump on a tank this small, it never hurts. I am mainly doing it so I can use an in-sump skimmer as I can't stand using my CPR bakpak I've used in the past. It was just way too noisey and finicky.

    I do not yet. Once I've got a tank picked out and I'm ready to gather the equipment, I will start one. Plans are tentatively FOWLR plus a bubble tip anemone for the clowns.
