Refugium Questions

I'm in the planning stage of setting up my 37gal FOWLR tank and I have some questions about my refugium plan. Note that I will NOT have a sump.

I was hoping to use a modified AC110 for my refugium so that I could also take care of a large portion of the necessary water flow in the tank (i.e. Reducing the number of power heads I need and increasing surface agitation). However, after reading Tecwzrd's stickied thread about setting up a tank, it seems like this will have too much flow for a refugium.

I also want to be able to grow some copepods in there because I'd like to keep blue/green or black axil chromis and I understand that these do best with a steady supply of Copepods to eat on top of regular feedings.

Do you think my plan will work for what I want to achieve?
