ULNS a thing of past??

When I left the hobby 10+ years ago, the hobby was transitioning towards ULNS. Heavy skimming, under feeding, high flow, no sand, weekly water changes. Truth be told, the most successful system I had running was BB, high flow, Low nutrient, and heavy skimming 100g mixed reef.

So is it a thing of the past?

I know it depends on the type of system/reef you are wanting to run. But when I checked out, it was skimmer VS skimmer wars and the start of Mh vs LED lighting debate. I just donít see a ton posted about it as I remember 🤷*♂️.

Lol. I guess people read the good old threads. Good skimmer and high flow are still essential. But people have moved/accepting LED and i have not seen people debating T5xMHxLED for a while.. haha welcome back to reefing!

Not a thing of the past but as you said, more in tune with SPS dominant regimes
