Building a refugium

Alright so i am looking for some advice on how to build a refugium using a aqua clear. It will be for my 75 gallon tank. I have done some researching and didnt find many good topics on how to properly make one. Here are some questions i have:

1) What size of aqua clear would be sufficient for a 75?
2) I read somewhere about switching out motors to minimalize the flow? True?
3) What kind of lighting is essential?
4) What kind of substrate should be used?
5) Should small pieces of LR be added?
6) How long should the lighting be on?

I think thats all. Please if anyone could find a site with set up pictures, that would be great!

Thanks all,
Steve

Dont all jump at once! Kidding

No worries i got my answer from nano-reef.com.

Though i still have a question:

Would an ac500 fuge be effective on a 75 gallon?
