how to convert sump into refugium?
Newbie here. And I have lots of questions, but I will start with this one. I have a sump similar to the one in the pic. I am wondering how to convert it to refugium, since it has the opening to the return pump section at the bottom. So I cannot add any sand in the sump. Do I need to add sand (substrate) to be a refugium or can I just add some rocks and algae plants. Will it defeat the purpose of the refugium? your help is always appreciated.
You basically dont need sand in a refugium. You can put some LR in there and pack it full of cheato! Will do great like that. On our HOB refugiums we use just cheato as not large enough for rocks.
Thanks silversurfer. Also do I need to worry about cheato going into the return pump section and stuck in the pump? I am planning to put cheato on the rock, will it just attched to the rock over time and not move?
