DT 15 gals
Sump 30 gals

i dont have any reactors and i only use filter medias and i always do 10% water change twice every week

I would try to get your phosphates below .08. Your lighting will not support anything but the lowest light demanding SPS (like plateing Montipora) high in the tank.

yup 15 gal DT and 30 Gal sump ^^ eeheh i dunno i just like it small in DT lol
but my 15 galt is shallow
OT. i read somewhere that yellow colored SPS is easier to keep than other colored sps because of theyre supplemental needs please can someone confirm this?
