Well, then you answered your own question in a sense. You are going to have to alter that wet/dry to turn it into a refugium. You will have to remove the bio balls and the filter pad tray on top, then put a filter sock in the corner maybe. Algae, and a light over it. Personally, I would save up for a skimmer suitable for your size system and put that in the place where you are thinking refugium.
