I've heard alot of people talking about a refugium. Can anyone explain to me what it is and it's purpose? I've got a 155g FO tank now, but am looking to convert to reef.

Basicly it's a little ro big box that hangs on your tank that houses macroalgae and other critters that may not thrive or even survive at all in your tank. It's sometimes used to culture copepods, growing macro for food or to just filter the water, or to just place new arrivles in it before adding them straight to the actual tank. Others can be used as a small tank to keep little fish in if the fuge is big enough.

If you do get one building your own is usally the cheapest and you can customize everything to your liking.
I'm tired of getting pointless messages. If your going to start a conversation or ask me something, keep up with it.
