AquaFuge2 External Hang On Back Refugium with LED lighting - Medium
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.

For a 125 gallon to keep nitrate down. With out a sump. By Marlin on 7/28/2019Marlin would recommend this product to a friend.
Pruduct may be nice but... By Ace on 6/27/2019Ace wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI ordered this a month ago and the supplied pump didn't work. I got in contact with brs support and was told a replacement pump would be sent. A month later and no pump still.
very nice By aaron on 1/12/2018aaron would recommend this product to a friendi really like how these have their own serial number. my only problem is the included rio pump included, venturi don't work at all, so 5 stars for refugium, 4 stars for pump
Great product By aaron on 4/22/2016aaron would recommend this product to a friendIt was very easy to install. Well made and easy to adjust water flow.
Overall I'm happy with it! By Landon on 1/3/2016Landon would recommend this product to a friendOverall this refugium does the trick and is constructed from high quality materials.
My only issues are the tank mounting screws weren't long enough for my rimmed 55 gallon tank! I had to add wood inserts to tighten it securely to my tank. The only other thing I wish it had would be laser cut slots in the top rim so the brackets for the LED could rest securely in place. I don't like how they slide around and wobble, and I worry one day I'll drop my light in the water.
it's a review... By Brian on 1/3/2015Brian would recommend this product to a friendThe lines are clean. Assembly and design is quality. It sits too high to run the lights at night if it's hanging on your dt. I got this to use on my sump, but since the water level for my sump is about 7" from the top, the return created a lot of splashing. I've seen this installed on the back of a nano (15g?) to keep live food. It looked like a nice setup. I would recommend, just not as an addition to a sump. It would be cool if they included some tubing or misc fittings to run the pump from a location other than hanging from the unit.
Great By Ryan on 11/30/2014Ryan would recommend this product to a friendThis is a great alternative to buying a bigger sump or a second one to run as a fuge i have not had a single problem with it and it is loaded with pods that don't have to go through a pump to get into my display tank.
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.
Hello, I was just wondering if this would fit on the back of one of the 7.5g Mr Aqua tanks you guys have on the site?
With the width being 4.5”, does that include the space/gap where it would mount onto the tank? With those support arms, it looks as if there would be a gap adding more width?
Can the medium HOB refugium be attached to the side of a sump. My water level is set at 8 inches and the sump is 16 inches tall. My concern is that the powerhead would not be able to reach down far enough to draw up the water.
