refugium questions

I thought a good wet-dry filter was the key, i guess not. can anyone please explain a refugium and how i can make one for a 110 gal( or maybe refer me to a site. i trust you guys more though.

thanks
mark

Mark if your not in a rush on this I am planning on taking some time out of my schedule over the next fiew days to compose an article on regiums based upon my readings.

A good book that has a very good chapter on refugiums is Reef Inverts by Fenner and Calfo (sp?). it can be found in our saltwater library.

the wet/dry is not exactly the best solution for reef tanks because they harbor nitrates more than a deep sand bed and live rock filtration.

Refugiums can be built out of anything from a rubbermaid tub to a small aquairum and can hold different items depending on what your goal is.
