Should i start a sump/refugium.

I am just starting a 77gal tank (about halfway through the cycle). I have been reading alot about refugiums as a good idea to add to the system. Right now i dont have anything in the tank only 6 zebra hermits. It seems like most people here have refugiums.

Ok. I would like for it to be a DIY; do you know for some decent pictures of some i could use for an example. I have been looking at some of the examples in the diy section which have been great help. There is only one problem i have as oposed to some. There is only about 2-3" behind my tank for space. Any ideas around this?

Put it under or above your tank.

See my refugium article for more info on what you can use them for. The book Reef Inverterbrits is a great book that has a very good chapter on fuges.
