You could build a fuge into as long as you slow the flow going trough it, but I would not add the bioballs. from what I here they are no good for SW.

imo it really doesnt matter on the flow of a fuge !! macros grow great in a display with 20x the water flow !! also found with a slower flow you will get a build up of waste !! pods dont mind either
good luck keith
