    Hi guys,

    I've just picked up a 70l nano and need some help with deciding filtration.

    460x 380x 370deep ( water level)
    Sump is390x 290x 300 deep (water level)

    Just put in a Sicce return pump and want to run an mp10 for flow in the display.

    I've built a 12 RB,12CW, and 2 UV, 2 cyan 2 orange. 3wcree led lights.

    I'm hoping for about 4 nice sps with a few zoas and minimal rock work. Fish load will be light, not sure what yet, but maybe 3 or 4 fish. Aragonite Fiji pink thin layer on display bottom but only for aesthetics.

    I would go Orca but am trying to avoid a skimmer as I want to keep it as quiet as possible. Is this futile and just stupid or is there a way to do it? Frequent water changes? Do I load the sump with live rock? I can't see a fuge being possible either

    Thanks in advance

    you can run it without a skimmer, there are some great small hangon skimmers, check out jns one from @Submariner
    everything else sounds good
    if you stay 3-4 small fish then yes you can, add a nice clean up crew and all is set

    Do you mean run the Orca without skimming? I thought the point of dosing etc. was to create an easily skimmable end product? Or is the orca different in that regard?

    no run a tank without skimming

    if you want no skimmer, use prodibio and grow cheato in your sump
