Product Questions

What is the area which this will cover? I have a smaller refugium 6" x 6" x 3" and am trying to figure out how much I'll need.
Question by: Josh on Apr 3, 2016 3:02:00 PM
Great question!
On a 6 x 6 area this will fill up around 2.5 to 3" high Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

I'm running a watertight canister type filter. Can I line the bottom of the canister with the Fiji mud or does it need light for the bacteria to thrive?

Great question!
Fiji Mud can be added to a standard canister filter if needed. The bacteria present will ideally be used in conjunction with a refugium to provide needed nutrients for macro algae. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Difference between Refugium Booster and Refugium Starter

The product in the Refugium Booster and the Refugium Starter is exactly the same. Refugium Booster is packaged in a 6 pound size and is generally used by reefers who want to top off their existing refugium with additional mud. Refugium Starter is packaged in a 12 pound tub and is generally used by reefers who are starting a new refugium and need a large amount of mud or for those who simply want to purchase a large amount because of frequent use and the economy of the larger size.
