I've got a spare 10 gal tank I would like to make into a refuge and move most of my equipment (filtration, UV, etc) to it. Is this possible and can I find some good info on this board to help me do it?
It's possible and takes less than half an hour to put together. You need an overflow, a return pump, some plexi to make a few baffles and some rock/macro. Lots of posts in here about how to do it.
Check our DIY area for sure. ALso check our aritcles area for info about a sump and the refuge. A refuge is basicly just a sump with 'stuff' in it like algae or sand and rock for critters you dont want to get eaten a place to grow.
