I think the one I linked is very similiar to mine, I'm pretty sure I couldnt find my exact one when I searched. lol But it should work on the same principal.

I tried using an air pump initially and it wasnt enough flow to make me happy, and it kinda gurlged. lol But with a piece of hose and the rio it works flawlessly now. I'm also not using a light in it, just the overflow of light I get from my main light fixture. Still waiting to see if the cheato grows, it''s only been a few weeks.

Cool. I've got about 3 large airpumps with 2 slots per pump so I'm going to connect them all to one tube using a Y connector. If it isn't enough flow then I'll just get the rio.

Sounds good. The rio was like $20 bucks from my lfs and I figure I can always find a use for an extra pump somewhere. lol I tried it with a tetra airpump which might have been my problem. Make sure you let us (me!) know how it works out.

Will do. The refugium I ordered was the finnex one btw. It comes with a pump so if I've got an extra pump I'll be able to give it away.

Does anyone know how to move a thread to a different section? Also to change the title of the thread? And an update on the refugium. I've already picked up a PC light and some Cheato and Caulerpa from my LFS aswell as 2lbs of sand. Hoping to make 2" sand bed and 1" mud bed.

You can message any mod and have them move/change threads. I;ve done it before and they dont mind as long as you dont do it constantly.

Well the lights came and are going right back. They aren't as powerful as stated but I guess it's my fault for believing in them. They really looked nice when they arent on the tank lol

That's really too bad....they do look good from what I hear but I can see how they might not be bright enough....do you have a link handy for the lights? Just so I can see what DOES'NT work. lol

Do you have a backup in mind?
