    Hello and welcome mahdi

    You can have a tank with no sand or substrate. Some guys do prefer it that way as there is less place to trap uneaten fish food and poo.

    Just keep in mind that certain fishes are then not for your tank. Like wrasses that sleep in the sand. And sand sifting gobies.

    Nice looking tank you have, I have not seen a custom glass bow before.
    Good luck with the water test, hope it does not leak! :)
