HOB Refugium, is it worthwhile?

I am looking to get a hang on back refuge as I am not using a sump, so I am unable to incorporate it there. I have found these midnight sun HOB units that seem very practical for my set up. Are they worth investing in or should I just hold out for a sump style system?


Set up: 40 Gal Coral Reef (soon to be!)
2xKoralia 2, 1xHeater 150watt, 1xTunze 9002 skimmer, 50lbs x live rock, 1" argonite sand bed, 1xPhosban Reactor
Livestock: 2xclowns, 1xBlue Tang, 1xCleaner Shrimp, 1xConch, 5xTrochus Snails, 1xBlood Shrimp, 3xHermits, 1xSea Urchin

Personally, I would hold off if you are planning to add a sump at sometime in the near future. If you cannot add a sump system, or do not plan to for quite some time, it may worth it to go the HOB route. A little HOB is better than nothing.

Take pride in what you do, for it is a reflection of who you are.
