Refugiums are a great option for growing algae to help control nutrients, as well as ideal conditions for harboring micro fauna. With three different sizes the AquaFuge2 is a simple to use hang on back refugium. With a recently redesigned black acrylic backing and unique baffle system, keeps the algae and substrate in the refugium and not the display tank.
Refugiums are also a great way to introduce new fish or corals to a tank while giving them a place to feed and acclimate to a new system.

Great question! It does not have a built in timer. You will need to plug it into a timer for control. :-)

I have a 180 gallon reef tank with hang on protein skimmers, a canister filter with a in line uv light and a phosphate reactor. I would rather not hook up a sump just for a refugium. So do you think this refugium will be big enough?
Question by: Ben on Jun 14, 2016, 1:35 PM
Realistically even the Large will not have a big impact and while it certainly can help to grow algae and may be fun it will not serve a large role in nutrient removal for its size. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.

Is the light with this unit capable of growing!
Question by: Jimmy on Dec 28, 2016, 1:59 PM
Hey there! This light can effectively grow macro algae. We actually are testing this and other lights as we speak, so watch for an upcoming video in the next couple of months! :-)

Can Tunze Comline DOC 9004 skimmer fit in? What is the distance between walls and how high is water column? Tunze 9004 needs almost 10" of water to operate. Also, will Fluval U3 internal filter fit in?
Question by: Elena Yacoub on Sep 14, 2020, 8:56 PM
Unfortunately, It will not fit in the Fuge.

I bought the large refugium. Is this good for a 60 and 75 gallon and is mineral mud good by itself or can I have a layer of mineral mud with sand substrate on top?
Question by: Jeremy Blanding on Jan 25, 2017, 3:12 AM
Hey there, great question! This fuge will definitely work for you! You don't necessarily need any substrate like mud or sand. It will work just as efficiently with simple macro algae. Adding a substrate just lessens the available area for water volume and space to grow algae. :-)
Answer by: Randy on Jan 28, 2017, 10:17 AM
Will this fit on a tank that has trim on the top?
Question by: Jason on Nov 27, 2021, 3:42 PM
Hello, The AquaFuge 2 can accommodate rim sizes up to 2” wide. Thanks

I have a 20 gallon with two clowns and watchman goby, with this be large enough for my setup to reduce nutrients?
Question by: James D. on Oct 7, 2017, 10:03 PM
Thanks for getting in touch with us in regards to this HOB refugium. This would work perfect on your tank, making a 20%+ volume refugium. I would personally try to get a variety of macro algae in order to make sure you are hitting multiple angles of nutrient reduction. The most important being Chaeto algae. Please let me know if there is anything else that we can assist with. Thanks!

How many watts is the pump ? And is good for 55 gal ?
Question by: Edmond on Aug 5, 2016, 9:31 PM
The Large Aquafuge 2 uses a Rio 600 pump rated at 9.5 watts. It would be a great fit for a 55 gallon to add beneficial organisms.
