Oops also found this one

External HOB Refugium / Breeder

I was going to buy it from finnex at first but saw it in store for $15 so I got that one.

I tried the air pump for circulating the water but either my pump isnt enough air or it doesnt work too well. I am gonna get a rio 200 pump and use that instead. Should give me great flow and my lfs was using the same setup in one of his tanks.

Carey quick question what do u do when you go away !!! In the summer I'm away at least 3 times for a week how do u feed corals ?? And I thought I had a plan for the fish but it did not work was going to use a ehiem feeder with new spectrum pellets but I tried it last night and it failed miserably the pellets sucked right down the overflow !! My wife said I could not get a tank because we travel I told her I had it covered !!! Online people say you can go without feeding them 4 a week !! I can not see that they allways look hungry all day let alone a week !!! And how often do u feed corals ??? Thanks 4 all your help I'll put pics up soon tank up and running LEDs in and rock looks awsome !!

I don't feed my corals so no problem there. As far as the feeder did you try putting it as far away as possible from the overflow? Or maybe try flake food while youre away. And yes, the fish can be ok for up to a week without food, they won't starve...

Awsome the reason I asked is because after my biocube is all settled in I'm going to upgrade my 10g FW to a 29 gallon planted. Then I'll have a perfectly good empty ten gallon tank with heater and filter. It would be a shame to have an empty tank soooo...... Nano reef (but not for another year or so)

Sounds like a plan, just keep in mind smaller tanks are more work at the end of the day. Things go south pretty fast in sw and even faster in a 10g tank.

Yeah it'll be a real challenge. Atleast I'll have a year+ of SW experience under my belt.
