I saw that website, but thanx. I'm just being ultra careful because i dont want a flood on the living room rug. So im adding precautions to the refugium. I dont want to drill the 90, so if i didnt divide up the refugium for the return pump and the main overflow failed, you would have the return pump pumping all the water out of the refugium into the main tank causing a disaterous flood, so i understand why they section the return pump off. I'm just trying to figure out why they make so many chambers on the refugiums/sump combos, i see it could help keep things from getting attached to the intake like caleurpa so they make a protein skimmer section. They mention a BUBBLE TRAP is this necessary and why???????????
But the question is really more is it worth just getting a HOB
protein skimmer for the refugium and save the space in your refugium. Is there really any functioning difference between an in sump or a HOB
like the Aqua c remora pro/Aqua c Urchin? Would a HOB
protein skimmer work better on the main tank rather than the refugium?
Thanks in advance, i've been researching quite abit and I am trying to figure out what I want for my setup.
