    I love the second one. I don't know why the bare bottom looks like something is missing. I was wondering if you need rock in the sump of the bare bottom tank and maybe no rock in the sand bottom tank?

    no rock needed in a bare bottom. Its really just a personally preference, and maintain thing.
