I use a regular flourescent and run it opposite the main tanks lighting schedule and my macro grows fine. Theres tons of copepods running threw mine as well.

i like to run the lighting opposite the display because i feel that any living creatures in the refugium might benefit from a night time. perhaps for breeding, and some creatures only come out at night to graze. these won't be able to survive long term with no night time.
