Hello all. I would really like to set up a 10 gallon tank I have underneath my 55 to use as a refugium. Eveyone at the LFS
says I need to put it on top of the tank for it to be feesable but I am just not buying it. essentally what I want to do is put the tank in the stand and use gravity to bring the water down to the 10 gallon where I will have some algea and a bunch of Live sand where pods
can grow. Is there really no way to get it back up to the main tank without destroying the pods
on the way if they even can get up there which I was told just wouldn't happen. There has to be a way to get this set up I cannot belive I am the only person who has ever wanted to do this. Also would just a regular florescent light that came with the tank be enough for just algea and bugs if I left it on 24/7? I just can't see spending 150 bucks on a hang on when I have a tank and powerheads and all just sitting here staring at me.
