- AquaFuge2 External Hang-On Refugium with Light
Great Refugium - it's gunna be bright By Justin on 8/26/2014Justin would recommend this product to a friendIm new to the hobby, and bulk reef supply couldn't have been more helpful. The original light that shipped with the refugium was broken so they shipped a light free of cost and I didn't even have to ship the first one back!
So far I'm very happy with the product, my only complaint is that the light shines into the tank at night. It's VERY bright. Might have to figure something out to adjusts that, but otherwise great product. Fits great on a 55 gallon.
Love it By Travis on 3/16/2014Travis would recommend this product to a friendI had a phosphate problem now with this it has eliminated all phos problems in my tank
Love it! By Nometank on 3/9/2014Nometank would recommend this product to a friendThis little HOB fuge is just perfect for my 37 gallon reef-to-be. I have some mud in it, along with a couple of kinds of macro for my pods to thrive in. I flick on the light at night and turn it off in the morning. Since I don't have a sump this is a great option.
Good product By Mac on 5/23/2013Mac would recommend this product to a friendJust the right size for my 50 gallon tank. One thing I do not like is that
the mounts for the light is to tall. At night the light shines down into the main tank. I wish there was some sort of shield or the light was mounted lower to keep the light out of my main tank at night.
Great product for the do it yourself-er. By Rick of More on 5/18/2013Rick of More would recommend this product to a friendI like it because it hangs on back and out of sight. Didn't have the room under the stand or in the sump for a refugium. Great alternative when your out of space. Helps keep the water were it needs to be.
good product By Marinne on 4/13/2013Marinne would recommend this product to a friendI bought this for my 60G tank and it works great...haven't had any leaks or problems and is a great alternative if you can't drill a tank

what type of lighting system is on the aqua 2 external hang on refugium. is it a compact fluorescent or led? and is there an option to get led if its not. thanks
Bulk Reef Supply Hi John,
It is a CFL bulb. They do not currently offer a model with LED's. LED's are mostly of benefit in situations where a high level of precision and control is needed (like the ability to tune a single LED in a fixture to a certain intensity). That type of functionality just isn't needed in a refugium light bulb so most prefer the significantly lower cost of the CFL fixtures.

Would it be possible to use this similar to a sump and hide some of the unsitely items? I specifically was interested in the Hydor Slim-Skim Nano Protein Skimmer being able to fit in the medium sized unit, even if it required a bit of modification to make the rest of the refugeum safe for the macrofauna
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Ken,
You could likely get by with some items that require very low flow (like perhaps a heater) but actual filtration like a skimmer, reactor, etc require much higher flow rates then the fuge has (which is deliberately slow as a refugium would have a low flow rate).
AquaFuge2 is a great solution for growing and harvesting macro algae for nutrient control. Included compact florescent light fits the size and shape of the refugium and provides light for the macro algae to grow. The refugium also creates a safe harbor for macrofauna to reproduce which helps maintain thriving populations of copepods and amphipods. Redesigned with a black acrylic backing to prevent light from transferring to the main aquarium. A powerhead and unique baffle system prevent substrate and organisms from being disturbed yet allows enough water to flow through to eliminate any stagnant areas.
