Been away for some time

Hey guys. Well I've been gone for some time due to family problems but I'm back and ready to jump back into discussion. Well anyway I have a 46G Bow that runs off into a wet/dry which is filled with LR rubble instead of bio balls. My question is I have an extra PC light fixture and an empty 10G tank and was wondering should I make it a prop tank or a refugium? if so Should I plumb it from my main or the sump? thanks a lot guys.

Whats the intensity of the PC fixture? This will help decide on the prop tank part. You can easily make it into a refugium. I would just connect it to the sump.

Oh and welcome back.

That would be overkill for a fuge. If you need a frag tank, that would be a nice light. A fuge will give you added filtering though.

What do you want more

Thanks Fluff. Due to the circumstances I just haven't had time to come around. An unfortunate event happened in my life and my family has been going crazy. The boy in that article happened to be my younger cousin im sure i need to say no more.

ellisz I know im sure I could use a regular strip light for my fuge. I have this one laying around collecting dust so I figured I could put it to use. Hmmm which one do I want more. I only have room for one under the tank and im a very indecisive person.

Welcome back and I'm so sorry for your loss. What a horrible thing and I can't imagine having been on the other end of the phone. Worst nightmare is right. The feeling of helplessness must have been all but overwhelming. How are his parents holding up?

As for the extra tank, make it a prop tank. You could use any old rubbermaid container for your fuge (that's what I did )
