Refugium

I have been running a refugium for 2 weeks now and i have to keep topping it off. Its only about a 1/4 of a gallon or less a day. Is this normal. Its a 10g refugium for my 20g DT.

I don't know much about what the flow needs to be but less than 1/4 of a gallon a day for a 10g sump seems a little low. it would take more than 40 days to cycle just once.

Hope i helped.
