Imo the water should be pouring over onto the bail balls. Can you get a top picture? It's hard to see how its all working with the stand support in the way. In the refugium you should stick a bunch of caulerpa or something in there and add a light.

That's it from the top. I have mine fully under water do you think that will be a prob in the future. I've been having a look on the net and no one really is doing it this way. This is y I put it on here. This was what the shop told me to do cheers.

I can see how it will still work but I'd still add the caulerpa and a light.

The rock is fine but a fuge should have a light to promote algae growth. To help with water quality
