What plumbing is needed for a 10 gal Fuge

I have a 10 gallon Spare that I would like to make a fuge. What else would I need to get the water from my tank (which will be above the fuge) to the Refugium and then returned back to the main tank?

Well first you need and over flow. This is a box that hangs on the back of your tank. Aslso you will need tubing or pvc piping to join the over flow to the sump. As the water level rises in your tank it will drop into your over flow and then into your sump. Now to get your water back to your tank you will need a pump not a power head as you are fighting gravaty and tubing to run the water back into the tank. When I set mine up my return is going to be placed into a spray bar across my tank. HTH
