The idea of a refugium is so that algae GROWS in it. I completely leave mine alone and have no snails or hemits either. The algae in your refugium should be algae thatotherwise would grow in the main tank.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

+1 I set mine up to grow algae to reduce nitrates and phosphates and keep the algae out of the display tank.
