I have had a couplr set backs with the 110 but I think I have it all worked out now.
I am deciding now what corals I already have can be moved to the 110 to get it started.

I was looking at some of the pics earlier in your thread. If you haven't already, I would highly suggest to replace the metal clamps with the plastic ratcheting kind. The metal will rust over time. BRS even has a sale on them atm.

One of those vinyl lines was one of my set backs. I have replaced one of them and the other will be replaced soon.

I am use to using HOB filters I just recently put a sump on my 60 reef it does not have the refug. Will start a new thread to discus that. Any way piont is I am not familiar with sump systems.
Do I have to have a light on the refug. If so what kind is recommended. I dont have anything growing there at the moment. It came with sand and live rock in it..
Should this be changed out or what do I do with it.

id personally ditch the sand in the refugium, buy a simple clamp on work light and run a spiral-bulb in it. also toss in some form of macroalgae
