I can't imagine how a refugium that can get a pump in and out couldn't fit one but if it can't you can try the FugeRay or the Ray 2. Lots of planted tank owners use them to grow tons of plants.
The area above the Fuge is a tight fit between the top of the tank and the bottom of the stand, if that makes sense. I have around 4 inches of clearance and would like a little air flow to allow what little air allowed in to move around.

I see. How tall is your refugium? I'm just asking because some lights penetrate better than others and knowing the height makes it easier to properly recommend something.

The Fuge is about 16 inches tall with around 15 inches of water. It's 12 inches front to back and around 10 inches wide

I'm looking for an LED that can keep LPS/softies and has the ability to adjust from day lights to night lights automatically. I have one tank with an AI Sol and love it. However, I'm starting a new tank and am trying to avoid spending $400.
