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 without competition or added stress from other fish in the system.

Add on for my sump By Jon on 4/22/2020Jon would recommend this product to a friendUsing this as a fuge in my Red Sea 200XL. Works great. Replaced the pump with a small DC for more flow and quieter operation. Also, using 2 Tunze 8831 lights which are the perfect length.
Grate for pods & chaeto By Wes on 2/10/2020Wes would recommend this product to a friendSet the CPR on a 45 gal. about one year ago and running grate and the copepods nice place for them to live ..and keep making food.
Quality product By Dale on 12/5/2019Dale would recommend this product to a friendJust got it in and running today looks great water flow is good it was a little loud it’s dropping in the back of my 38 gallon Nuevo so I added a piece of coarse foam to my media tray and silent can’t wait to get some pods growing so I can add the mandarin
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.
Will this refugeium work for a jbj rl 45 to maintain a stable pod population?
Hey i was wondering if this will be big enough for a 34 gallon tank reef tank!!!!!
This hang on refugium should be a good fit for your tank. It will provide a good refuge location for a nice pod population as well as a good growing area for some macro-algae, although you may find the supplied LED light is not optimal for growing algae and if one of your main goals is nutrient removal through algae growth, a more powerful light with proper spectrum might be advantageous.
Have a great day!
