HOB as refugium

Hi, I was wondering if u could use a HOB filter as a Refugium. I was thinking about using an aquaclear 115 or a whisper internal filter 10i as one. The HOB Refugium will eventually go on my future 29G saltwater. Would this be a good idea? Would I actually see a drop in the organics? I don't think I would add any algae because I'm not too sure about a light source it. I would add either Fiji live mud, or LS(could both work) and LR. I was thinking about also adding copepods and maybe a asterina star. I'm still learning about saltwater so I may get some things confused, so just bare with me

Everyone should have at least ONE shrimp tank
