It is, hence the macro algae, but no snails are needed to filter.

I installed valves on both my overflow lines to my Refugium. I am glad I did that too. One reason is that one of my overflows is much louder than the other and I can throttle it down to a quitter level. Secondly, I had an anemone camp out for a month or so at one of my overflow box intakes and was having tentacles go into it and hurting it. With valves I was able to shut that side off and allow it not get sucked into it and yet still run my sump. Valves are always good, take it from a journeyman plumber, more is better than less when it comes to isolation and throttling valves.
