I am planning to build an in tank refugium out of plexiglass sheet. I can get it at my local Home Depot. I plan to score it in order to get the pieces I need for the sides. There are two thickness available, 0.22in and 0.093in, which should I go with?
Will super glue be fine for assembly? It sticks well to plexiglass, but I dont know how well it will hold up in my reef tank.
For flow I planned on drilling some holes in the side of the refugium and letting my output from my fluval 305 blow through. Should this be okay?
Size planned: 9 in long, 2in wide, 5 in deep.
As for contents, I was thinking some sand, macro algea (or some mangroves?) and a pod pile. (Or maybe this would be good something like GARF grunge?).
My DT is only 20g, but I like the idea of a refugium.
I do a 10% PWC
each week, but now have some Acroporas in the tank. (I read they like absolutely ZERO nutrients).
