Hi looking for some help I have a 4 month old 90l Aqua one reef nano tank with radion xr15 and mp10 vortech power head I have no live rock in my display tank just this fake arch (man made) could I remove the arch and just have my corals on the sand bed I have been using 4l seachem matrix I also have 2clown and a yellow tang in the sump thanks rob

Sure, lots of corals grown naturally on the sand bed. It is not the most aesthetically pleasing way to display corals, but it will be fine without live rock. I would however recommend a bed of aragonite and not the silica sand from the hardware store. You need something to buffer the water and provide some calcium.

Thank alprazo for the reply this is a picture of my tank at the moment I just don't think it looks real enough maybe I should just use live rock

Nice live rock can really make a tank.
