What do you think of this refugium?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...&category=3212
or
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=20758

Saw this on ebay. I've been reading about the advantages of having a refugium and thought maybe I should get one. Display tank is 110G, does this look like a good idea? I was considering a hang-on-back model thinking I wouldn't need to buy a light for it because my MH's would light it up? Any suggestions, should I just get a 20G tank at my LFS and make one?

I prefer the first ebay link to the second. Both are approx 1' in width so they will do best under the tank. Having it under the tank or beside the tank would allow you to light it on a different schedule than your main tank. That has its benifits for helping maintain PH levels, etc.

Refugium

I like the first one with one exception. If you notice the drain on the bio tower is a bit high. The bio balls on the bottom would be submerged and you want as many bio balls as possible out of the water. You might want to look at DIY plans as they aren't hard to make. There are many different plans out there that I'm sure would suit your needs.

Totally agree with figstr822 the opening on the bioballs is way to high and should have been put on the bottom.
