I currently am using a 20 gallon tank as a sump for my 72 gallon bowfront. I have everything stuffed into it (heater, phosphate reactor, protein skimmer etc). Someone (Fijiwigi) was kind enough to ship an acrylic sump over to me. I have everything ready to go but I have some questions about the refugium portion of the sump.
Do I simply add live rock rubble to it and a handfull of chaeto and let it go? Should I do the refugium mud thing? Am I supposed to add snails to it? How long should I set the timer for the lights in the sump? Do you have anything inbetween the sections of the sump (between the baffles) such as a foam insert?
Told ya....Refugium newbie here
