Cube Question

Looking at Nano Cubes (12g) and reading up some on setups, operation, upgrades, and so on. Something I have noticed differences of opinion in are skimming and filtration. Some folks talk about spending money on upgrades to filtration while other remove filter media in favor of natural methods like live rock and sand. Same with Skimming. Arguments are in the nano environment, too much of the stuff, vital to corals, is removed. I am totally new to nano's and reef keeping in general, so any worthy arguments pro/con will help. Thanks!!

PS Is one Cube system better than others?

IMO it's just different methodologies. Typically nanos don't have a large bio load and are maintained more with water changes than filtration.
