Ok so and sand bed is ok? The area is 5L x 24W x 5D. Kinda weird. I know. But it's what I have to work with.

I turned a pro clear aquatic dump kit into a refugium because of issue with stand size, but I uses refugium mud and after reading idk if that was a good idea. The other issue is getting the protein skimmer cup out to dump it. It is pain because of height issues.

My protein skimmer would be a HOB skimmer so I wouldnt be worried about that. The section I am talking about would be strictly for the chaeto and light. But I could add sand or rock. Just trying to get suggestions. Thanks.

I have seen some people with them set up that way, but I have not had experience doing that.

i'm not a big fan of the deep sand beds.

I just dont like the fact that if i disturb the sand for any reason......I may have some problems with releasing toxic gas into my system.

I think DSB's are more trouble then they're worth.

Right. So if I just throw the chaeto in the section with the JBJ light that's good?
