I can't access that link, it says the content is un-available.

So if you could explain what deals with the waste in that tank, then great. Personally I'm a little bit wary of such claims, the tank would have to be heavily understocked and you would need something to deal with the waste in there. Otherwise you would have a still water situation, which can lead to stagnant water if left alone long enough. With no aeration there can't be very much gas exchange going on? I've always thought water movement at the surface was the best way to go, so I'm surprised one's been set up as still water. I've only ever done filterless/still water with snails that I know can live with it.

Although 90 gallons is a pretty big tank, so if that were under stocked, then yes it would take a long time for pollutants to build, but I personally wouldn't want to try it on a small tank.

I accidentally left my filter off on my goldfish's tank for a week, it's 90 litres/3 foot in length and she's the only inhabitant in there. The filter was fine, the water was fine, I was lucky, but I wouldn't do it again and I wouldn't attempt to go filter-less, but that's my personal preference Smiley

If you could provide more information about how this actually works, I'd love to read it. I don't know a massive amount about salt water tanks, but I personally would not attempt this on a goldfish tank, they are too messy to be left alone Wink

Skwishee you almost figured out how it works
 the waste gets removed  by the 2 powerheads  that move 1600 GPH push the water though the live rock and live sand and the live rock/sand is where the good bacteria is(sorry it is a 65 gallon) i have seen this tank and the is NO sump
 if you look at the video he also has 2 powerhead on his tank.
here i the one link again  (Link is not visible to guests. Please register to view.)  
you can also try this one (Link is not visible to guests. Please register to view.)

it is basically the same thing as a Berlin sump. the berlin has no bio media in the filter only a filter floss

Ohhh so the live rock acts as a filter? Wow, the first link didn't work, but the second one did, that reef tank is stunning!
Learned something new today, thanks for sharing Cheesy I will keep that in mind if I ever do a reef set up Wink
