Refugium size is based off what you are wanting out of it. I run a trigger systems sump on my 75, and the fuge is a middle chamber fuge that is 9.5" L x 11.5"W. It does the job I need it to, as far as reducing nitrates and phosphates to a degree and is excellent for growing pods and such.

As far as a protein skimmer, I would go +1 on the gallon rating. I run a Bubble Magus NAC7 on my 75 that is rated from 135g-185g. It does a great job and is small enough that it doesn't take up a huge amount of space in my sump.

Thank you for the info. Now I can do more research and look around for best pricing.

I've seen them in use. Really nice compared to the crystal series I have. The ruby has the red baffles on either side of the fuge to diffuse some of the light on the fuge. Cuts down on algae build up in your skimmer. I would have gone with the 30 ruby but it was too wide for my stand, thus I had to go with the crystal.
