    A general question.If I have a mixed fish only system,can I treat it as a reef tank with LR,DSB and macro algae in the sump with no mechanical media.My overflow is plumbed into a large external skimmer.How does the the LR and other critters get food if there is no coral feeding going on.Do I have to have all this for fish only?

    Yip, that will be fine.
    The live rock and critters will get all they need from the fish food and also from the fish waste.
    No, not at all, you can have just a tank with water and fish.

    Your fish will love you if you do have all that. All you would need to ensure is that you stock slowly and dont put too many fish in at once.
