Default 47G LPS Domination (sumpless, skimmerless)

Sup fellow nerds,

After much consideration, I decided to do a bare-bottom LPS dominated reef tank. Skimmer-less, and sump-less.
Why? Because I noticed an intense growth of my frogspawn corals, torch, zoathids (etc) when I placed it inside a 10 gallon holding tank. Did some research and decided that this was the best way to do it. I love how they move with the wave, I just canít seem to really love sps yet 
I will be housing limited livestock to make room for soft corals.
Specs:
95 x 45 x 45 cm starphire tank (roughly 47 gallons)
Custom ada stand with fireproof/waterproof black matte film
Pharos 90W led lighting
Vortech MP40W Gen 2 with new SKF Bearings
Fluval 300w digital heater
Livestock:
2 clownfish
1 yasha ray goby
Might add an angelfish and a wrasse later on.
Corals:
Acans, acans and more acans!

Here are some pictures!
The stand doors are not done yet



There are kicks for the bottom portion, so if I ever change my mind on adding a sump, then I can. You can also tell that the back is open because I originally wanted a sump




I hope you guys enjoyed the pictures! I'll keep the thread updated with what not.

Thanks for looking!

Did you DIY the stand or have it made? Looks great, I'm looking to do something similar and would love some extra details

Theyre really nice. Have you seen the 'infinity' style ones? Where the water overflows over the whole tank!

I had it made. My friend's uncle is a carpenter and he has a shop. This one was a gift. I am pretty lucky
