Yep, that is an option but keep in mind you lose some tank real estate when you add an in tank refugium. But if youre ok with that it looks like a good option especially if you can build your own!

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

That Refugium looks nice, but I couldn't tell, is the top closed and holes in the sides? I couldn't tell if the top was open or not. If it is open, it won't help much if at all

Well... The plastic sheets i had at my house where not as malleable as i had hoped in fact it cracked the second i tried to cut it so i am just going to mod an old HOB filter. But my question what is the best kind of micro algae for Copepods?

I have chaeto and calupera in my 125g fuge with some live rock for the pods to hide and grow. In my cube I have just cheato for now. I use this light for my cube's fuge JBJ Nano-Glo.

A cheaper and smaller option is 10W Underwater Light.

The aquaclear 70 is a great filter to make into a fuge, search on utube for it and you can get detailed instructions on how to do it.

I suggest you use AlgaGen Reefpods Tisbe. You can order them from Aquacon.com.
