DIY Aquaclear Fuge?

ok someone told me i can turn my Aquaclear 30 filter into a DIY Fuge for my new 10 gallon nano project... any directions/suggestions on how that is done?


Just because I am working at Petco does not mean I am a sell out, they are still an evil empire, that I am trying to make better.

Aquaclear 70, or 110 are better for making a "fuge" which isnt technically a "fuge". All it is is a filter filled with live rock rubble instead of media which holds nitrates.

I will have to disagree a HOB is most certainly a technically a "fuge". The Aquaclear refuge set up does just what any refugium is meant to do. It protects organisms (wheter, isopods, algaes, etc..) from predation from tank mates. Nothing more nothing less.
Many do more than chuck live rock rubble in it, mangroves, macros, etc... Plastic egg shell crating is often used to help keep the flow from blasting out macros. The DIY section at www.nano-reef.com is a good place to search.
