Looking to make a change to my 40 breeder, softy/LPS
I'm running a Reef octo BH2000 in conjunction with an AC70 that has Matrix, GFO
, and PhosGard stacked in the media tray.
I'm looking to simplify a bit, and nix the chemical phosphate removal in the AC70, as well as remove the BH2000 because it barely pulls anything out anyways due to a small bioload.
I'd like to remove the skimmer and filter, and add a CPR HOB
refugium, that holds almost 5 gallons of water. My main question here is would I be able to have comparable phosphate and nitrate reduction with the use of macroalgae in the fuge? It seems like a more natural way to me as well, and also less maintenance... Plus would be pod breeding heaven and I may be able to add a mandarin down the line... Hopefully.
