That's my main reason for finally turning to a sump/refugium. I love the diversity of life that it brings into the equation. Especially if you begin to get different types of LR
or rubble that will bring in new critters for you to look at. It's like looking in to an underwater jungle. Refugiums are awesome, and not just because they can help the entire tank system.
