fuge question

Could I use a 15 G tank as a sump AND refugium, or is it too small to add enough seperate chambers. The dimensions would be 24" x 8-1/2 x 16. I would like the benefits of both but am limited with space for right now. I would be placing a HOB skimmer in the sump in its own chamber and having a small chamber for sand and macro algae if possible.

What kind of skimmer is it? Sometimes you can extend the intake to get to the correct level but this will often reduce it's affectiveness and may require a stronger pump.

maybe you should consider getting a hang on refuge. try the CPR ones i here they are very good. a 15 gal. is a bit small. is there enough space to put the refuge in a 10 or five gallon tank?
