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.

Does the LED have a timer?
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?
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!
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?
I have a 20 gallon with two clowns and watchman goby, with this be large enough for my setup to reduce nutrients?
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!
