Well, I want to add a refugium, but I'm not sure if I should, or how I should.
I have a 125g, with ~170lbs LR
, ~70lbs LS
, a Mag 350 filter, and a wet-dry trickle filter with two return pumps (one a 350 and the other a 500.) I also have an AquaRemora HOB
The wet-dry filter runs with three separate compartments. At one time, one compartment had bioballs (fed from the LHS overflow), the second compartment had some kind of rolled up mesh (fed from the RHS overflow), and the third had the two return pumps in it which sucked in the water through a filter sponge from the other two compartments. I've since gotten rid of the bioballs and mesh and replaced them with LR
rubble. The two compartments with LR
rubble have lids to minimize splash and evaporation.
I've toyed with the idea of a HOB
fuge, because I like the idea of a separate area with plants and invertebrates to keep safe from other livestock, but I only have a 3-1/2" clearance between the back of the tank and the wall. I thought I might hang a small one on the side of the tank, but that will limit the size of the fuge.
I'm stuck. Any suggestions?
