just stumbled across this site and found some of the threads usefull so thought i would join up myself.
i am an enthusiastic saltwater fish keeper with a 50 g tank and am looking to build a sump joing onto the tank. this is were i need the advice which i hope i will get from this website.
i have built the overflow of my tank and the water runs down through bioballs into a free flow pipe into the sump. this is were i am puzzled. I have a bubble trap which then leads into a refugium which i dont know the best media to fill the refugium with. i have so far decided to place caulerpa algae, some live rock and coral sand in. i will have a light on for around 16 hours of the day.
i am looking for advice because i have read up on miracle mud, grape algae, mangroves and other medias and i am wondering what is the best media to use in my refugium
