the fuge is a box 14X14 that is 18 inches deep. The plan is 6 inches of DSB
with 11inches of water on top. I plan on growing macro algee, and possiable keeping some seahorses(down the road), my wife really wants some.
The fuge will house a cleaning crew to keep the sand, as I understand that is important.
I sounds like the plenum just makes the DSB
a bit more effective by adding more dead water space fot the porper bacteria to colonize. It does not sound like it can hurt, and sure is simple enough to set up. I think I will give it a try.
The refuge is a box of its own, only connected to the sump via overflow, this will allow me to keep a nice slow waterflow.
Does that sound about right? I have #1 grade fine sand that I will use. Doe the addition of this MUD stuff help the macro algee, or do I need to bother?
