Refugium Stocking Ideas

I just modded an Aquaclear 50. Plan is to have Chaeto in it. Is there anything else that should or go in there? I do have Purigen and everything else that came with the filter.

You could put the purigen in a filter sock or panty hose to toss in there as well.

Do you think Purigen would be removing nutrients that Chaeto wants to absorb?
Mini fuge up and running

I think it would be fine. On my 55, I have a dual reactor with high capacity Gfo and purigen in it. Then it hits my oversized skimmer and flows into my red bone grass. Through all that, and it all works, hair algae grows all over the sides of the sump. It'll work wonderfully in your hob.

Thanks. Got it at LFS. Made by Up Aqua. Available on eBay for $30 with free shipping. Good luck.
Here are the specs. I believe it's available larger size.
