I just built a 20 long refigium for my 75 the hardest part was getting it under the tank. I had to remove everything lift the tank and set it in the stand. Well worth the effort and no I don't have a algae scrubber. you can make one yourself or buy one. In the long run you will be happy with it.

I'm running a refigium I got my design from the owner of oceans below here in Fl I had my plan but he gave me a few ideas and he was right on.the bigger the better just make sure you have access to it like adding rocks,changing your filter sock etc. not enough room to work in it makes it tough.most important maintience is water changes if you keep up on them you will be fine.

You can always add a algae scrubber if needed you seem to be overwhelmed with this.gather your info do some research find a local store or someone else in this hobby to help you and all will be fine. It's really simple and patience is key you can always add more down the road. I started with hob they worked fine.
