Fuge questions

I have a fuge in my sump. Do I need to put a filter pad after the fuge or should I leave it open? I get some extra macro in my pumps. And some nastiness that goes back into my tank..

I run a large pore filter on mine to keep things from getting pulled into the return pump, saved the life of my new yellow watchmen goby who took a ride down the overflow just a couple days ago.

You want things to be pulled into the return pump. Especially pods. Nothing after the refugium. If you are having a problem with fish down there, correct that from before the refugium.

I find that a ton of pods "live"in the filter I'm using. Every time I clean or replace my filter media there I shake it out and let the pods take a ride into the display. Also helps to collect the larger bits of ulva that break off my main growth so I can decide when to pitch them in and let the tang and rabbitfish fight over them
