Hob refugium

I'm about to go get my saltwater, live and dead rock, live sand, hydrometer, powerheads, and other chemicals etc. to start my saltwater tank! I had a fresh water tank and I was wondering if I should turn my hob filter into a refugium. If so I would take all the media, get a clip on light, and get some rubble and cheato. What are your thoughts on this? Yes or no?

Is it on your 36 bowfront? You can try there isn't that much it will do. Maybe lower the nitrates a little it won't house enough pods for mandarin unless you have a ton of live rock
