Refugium beside the tank...

Well I was going to run my fuge in my sump but I have came to the realization that there is just not enough room.. So I decided to do a seperate tank to run as a fuge. My roomate has his set up pretty nice it is up on a shelf and gets pumped from the sump to the fuge and the drains back into the tank. Well im not as fortunate to have a tall cabinet like he does. So my question is can I have it pump from the return side to the fuge and drain back into the sump or would that not work very well?

This is how his is...




I was going to do this....

You can run it however you like, and it should work as you've described. The advantage of having it drain from the fuge directly to the tank is that any pods get carried into the tank without having to travel through the return pump.
