Just did the calculations. My sump is 17 gallons and the refuge is 11. Was I supposed to size my equipment to include these extra gallons. I oversized everything so I should be good. Just something I never thought of. The only thing I think that the extra gallons will effect would be the heater. I dont think it would effect Skimmer size as the sump and refuge don't increase Bio load. Just curious.
As far as refuge lighting, since I have a small footprint 12x12x20tall I was thinking of going with the jbj nano led
. The only thing the light is used for is to grow macro correct. Due to the narrow footprint the macro will block light from penetrating to the rock and sand base. Will this be a prob. Thanks again
