HOB refugium rated for 60G for a 16G display tank

Recommended Posts


HOB refugiums are difficult to find in Europe; I'm excluding DYI since I'm a beginner.

My options are a HOB refugium rated for 40G tanks or one rated for a 60G tanks


Would either help me have my 16G (no sump) crawling with copepods? That's the goal.


Thanks a lot.

I know oversized refugiums have been discussed, sorry for the hundredth post on the topic, but I couldn't find anyone discussing the benefits/negative impact on the copepod population (if there are any). What are the cons? I read cheatos may die in an oversized refugium, releasing nutrients.
