A hang-on-back fuge is way worth it! You don't have to worry about a flood if u have a power outage and your one-way valve fails as with a below-tank fuge. Still, proper setup can take into account of extra room below to prevent floods in the worse cases. A HOB
fuge allows u to have less hoses to break-down & clean. U can save on buying another expensive pump as well although u may need a small powerhead in the fuge.
