I`ve always heard that it needs to be on all the time. When it will mess up I cant give you an answer Only that I`ve had my refuge lights on 24/7 with no problems. The pruning part is definiely a good call. BTW welcome to AA

If it's grape caulerpa it's not a question of if, but of when. Pruning can help.

It's not the grape kind - it's the fern-ish looking one. Thanks for the welcome, by the way! I will try to get my profile more fully filled out soon.

I use cheato and mangroves in mine. The mangroves amaze me. Mine are suspended in styrofoam and have roots hanging all over. They can get kind of pricey and you need room above the fuge for them to grow.

I took some pics of my refugium contents I figured it tied in to this thread so I put them here. The first photo Is little mini brittel star that I just found the second is some amphipods I believe. The 3rd and 4th I need identification on. I found the white tubular thing and I watched it for a bit and it emerged looks like a feather duster maybe???

Seems like you have quite a bit of growth there.

Just a general refugium question: How much nitrate can you expect to be absorbed through nutrient export? If your LS/LR can bring Ammonia and Nitrite to zero readings, can your refugium get nitate to a zero reading?

Re: caulerpa going sexual without 24/7 lighting, "when not if" is certainly true...yesterday I came home to a totally cloudy tank and immediately ripped out all the caulerpa!
