Refugium needed!

Hello Everyone-

Happy New Year and such. I have a 30 gallon bio cube, reef tank. It's doing very well and has been up for about 4 months or so now. Coralline algae is spreading, levels are good, corals are attaching and spreading but I still have a small algae problem in places and I really want to set up a refugium. Does anyone have a small refugium on their tank?? I really would like to just custom make one. Any thoughts?

Thanks guys.

Check out this checklist as far as the algea. You might be able to find the source and not need the refuge even though they are good for extra water volume.

Thanks for the link. I really wish there was something I can come up with though to make one. I hear people use that back chamber, but that seems like it would be too much water flow. Does anyone have a biocube with a fuge?

Thanks
