Refugium question

Can someone please explain to me how to set one of these up? Like what equipment is needed and how much work would be involved? I'd like to do a DIY project. How much would that cost? Would a 10 gal fuge be ok for my 40 gal.

ANY help or info is appreciated.

Thanks.

10 gallons would be great! Most commercial fuge kits seem to be much smaller than this. I built in a roughly 7 gal fuge into my sump. Here are a couple links I found useful:

I would also be happy to pm you with how I built mine from an old acrylic tank if you want.

Thanks zuzecawi! I found that first link to be especially helpful. The only thing I don't quite understand is the principle of the return pumps and overflow boxes. Can you explain?

And what kind pumps do you recommend using?
