I feel it is always good to run at least carbon.... Seen a lot of cloudy/yellow tanks go clear after adding carbon.

I had a fuge. I honestly hated it. Removed it, added the biggest skimmer I go fit in where the fuge use to be, a Reef Octopus Nwb150(and it was free) and started carbon dosing. And honestly, removing the fuge was the best decision I've made.

Should add carbon dosing/bio pellets and skimmer to the list.

I agree removed my fuge also . I run bio pellets and the biggest skimmer that would fit in my sump , I feed heavy and don't have any problems .

Im done with refugiums.

 

Its just one big poop catching toilet. Cleaned out today, mess.

 

No more as "so-called" filtration. Maybe a display version, buy it will be tied to real filtration, itself.

Not sure if it was mentioned earlier in the thread but Julian Sprung has a spectacular "Florida style" tank running only a refugium.

Right now all I run is a bag of carbon and filter floss.

I'm planning on using a refugium only with Purigen with my 17 gal Mr Aqua tank. Maybe add a skimmer later.

My filtration: Powerhead, Macro Algae, LR.

 

I ran carbon and rowaphos whilst the Macro Algae established itself.

I run a fuge but I don't see why you would not use a skimmer if you have room!

I ran one for almost a year. Removed it a few weeks ago after my reactor got up and running. My water seems much nicer and I can do a week without having to clean the glass. With the skimmer and no reactor I was cleaning every two days.

I used a refugium only for filtration on the tank linked in my sig. It's what I prefer, personally. I have no problems using carbon in HOB as well.

I run a skimmer + refugium (caulerpa) + bag of carbon.

But the skimmer is rated for half of my tank size.

Used to have filter socks, but have taken them off since I'm too lazy to clean haha.
