Reefugium 100m. Any body got one?

Thinking about this and the Miracle Mud system for a 155g reef tank. No skimmer.

Thoughts? Experiences?

Either of you using a skimmer also? How long have you had the Reef-ugium? What are your average 'trate readings?

I put the sand on top to keep the mud or dirt down. I was afraid of mud coming up to the main. Yes Autinsdad I do have a excalibur skimmer and my nitrates are at 0. I think more for the refuge than the skimmer. The skimmer does a good job of getting the DOC out.
