So I am looking to set up a simple refugium to harbor Copepods to begin with. Nothing real special. I have been researching and trying to figure a few things out. I have come up with this idea and wanted to run it by those who have made one to see if it will work... Basically I want to put the fuge on a shelf that sits slightly higher than my display. If I redirect the water coming out of my skimmer to the fuge instead of right back into the tank then putting an overflow on the fuge to gravity return the water to the tank. Will this work properly?
I have attached a diagram to help understand and a photo of my current set which will basically stay the same.
