I have also done both, and had a recent bb tank that used a remote dsb fuge and had a thriving sps reef. My new 28 gallon tank is bb, no fuge or sand whatsoever. I also use a skimmer rated for a 150 gallon heavily stocked tank. I run undectable nitrates and phosphates. Plenty of sps reefers run bb, just check out the sps forum right now, there is a thread about those who run sps tanks with sand. Having a sps tank is considered as hard as it gets in this hobby, so saying that it is not possible to run a proper reef without sand is untrue. Not to stir up the pot or anything.....lol..
