This is what my refugium looks like. I am also thinkingof ways to make a wetdry into a refugium but am coming up with half baked ideas. lol Theres just not alot of room in there. Maybe you could just get a 20L tank frompetco and make the sections yourself? Mine has 3 comaprtments. Ont he left intake and filter socks with my skimmer, then the refugium then the lat compartment has a baffle to prevent micro bubbles and holds just my return pump.

But heres how mine works anyways
