marineland bio wheel into refugium

I was thinking about purchasing a marineland bio wheel 350 filter and was wondering if it could be turned into a refugium. Anyone have any advice on how to do it? Also if I do will I need another filter to be my main filtration

You could definitely do some rubble, chaeto would require a light

I found an old aqua tech 5-15 filter that came with the tank when I got it. I might just use that as the fuge and then get another filter as my main filtration.

Also if I buy 15 lbs of base rock and 5 lbs of live rock how long will it take to seed? Would I be better off just buying all live for 15 dollars more?
