I’ve never heard of a this stuff but I’m suspicious of this statement:
“Made of non-clogging, open-pore ceramic glass foam.”

I haven’t seen any media, especially ceramic media that didn’t clog eventually and lead to NO3 spikes.

Personally I’d just stick with LR and a decent skimmer to keep your tank clean.

Also 1\4" for a sump is fine IMO.

Yes, with the sump your building I would dedicate a good part of it to being a refugium to keep ls, lr, pods, & caulerpas.

Below are a couple of articles:

Ive deieded to go with just a ten gallon aquarium. Ill have to pump out all the water into my 50 gal barrel.

But if im just doing refugium how can i defuse the water so it dosent disturb the sand.
