Yup, this is very common. A favorite filter to do this with is the Aquaclear110 (500) because of its large size. It adds almost a gallon to your tank, and it can easily hold a light to light the refugium and to grow macroalgea (chaeto is the best IMO), along with LR/LS. Many, many mods are also done to this filter.
