  1. Good afternoon everyone, i currently have a HOB Refugium that I used on my old 10 nano tank. Was thinking about using it n my current 36g Bowfront tank that I have. I was just wondering if it would really be worth it in the long run? The HOB fuge holds about 1 gallon of water and was looking at adding some macro algae to help with nutrient export, along side my skimmer. I don't have the room for a regular refugium because of limited space and my stand doesn't have the place to put one. Was gonna place some extra filter floss in one chamber and leave the other 2 for the macro algae and possibly Pods in the near future. What do you think?
  2. Hi, I have a question, do I need to turn on the light in the fuge exactly when the tank's light is OFF, or 1h before? Thanks

    Salty Buddha's IM10 Fuge Mod

    SaltyBuddha's IM10 Fuge Mod Currently cycling an IM10 fusion, and I added a little fuge mod the the rear chambers. My plan for the tank is to keep it as natural as possible. I don't want to run too many chemicals or any kind of skimmer. Although, I will be using Renew from seachem to help with water clarity. I opted for this instead of carbon due to any phosphate leak possibilities. Basically, the second chamber that has the fuge option was pretty small. Anything that I have seen recommends to have at least 20% of the DT area for the fuge. I ended up removing the wall between the 3rd and 2nd chamber and moved it closer to the 1st chamber. Opening up more room for the 3rd chamber. Biggest issue now, is that I am keeping chaeto in the same area as the return pump. I could have made the 2nd chamber larger, but the IM10 has that weird bottom chamber to increase the volume size of the 3rd chamber. I initially wanted to get rid of that bottom chamber, but it would have been pretty difficult to remove that glass panel. I opted to create an acrylic divider between my chaeto, liverock, and sicce .5 pump as seen in the picture below. The Sicce .5 was bigger than I thought. It is yet to be tested, but I think it should work pretty well. I have a small waterproof 6700k LED that can be attached with suction cups that I plan to use to grow the chaeto. I will update this when I have results. First Chamber Polyfil Seachem Renew Any other chemicals on a need to use basis Second Chamber Heater Third Chamber Chaeto Liverock rubble Removing Glass Chamber Dividers I found that removing the divider between the 2nd and 3rd chamber was more difficult than I though. I tried using a razor blade and that was a lot of work. It was hard to get between the glass panels to remove the silicone adhesive. Then, I stumbled upon something from google. A guitar string can be used to slip between the panels and scrape off the acrylic at the same time. Luckily I had a few from one of my guitars laying around. It was way easier. Hardest part was holding onto the string with tools while inside the small rear chambers. BUT I did break the glass divider. I was a little impatient and tried to wiggle it out before removing all the silicone. It ended up breaking in half, but luckily it did not hurt anything else in the chamber. I ended up using some acrylic (from a failed DIY tank attempt) to replace that divider. I left just enough room in the 2nd chamber for sufficient flow and my heater. The heater is working well in that area with no issues. Flow - I have a a chiller in the 3rd chamber as well. This provides about 100 GPH of flow running from the top down to the bottom where the return pump is. The sicce .5 provides a constant 185 down flow. I am hoping this will be sufficient for the chaeto. If not, I have a few ideas in mind, but it will limit the amount of space. Update 5/7 - New light and updates I saw almost NO growth with the light from Amazon. It kept the chaeto alive but that was about it. Switches to a JBJ NanoGlo and the chaeto has doubled in size in less than a week. Way better. I've also changed to putting a micron bag over the pump. This is almost like a filter sock. For a nutrient exporter I would have to clean it every 3 to 4 days. Way to much of a pain to do that, but I'll do it every 2 weeks no problem. It is working well to keep chaeto and other stuff out of the DT. All in all it is doing a great job. Im down 5ppm of nitrates in 2 days with the upgrade to the JBJ nano glo.
  4. HOB Refugium with Cobalt Mj 400 pump upgrade and hang on light excellent condition, and the pump sits in the fuge... low flow, great for POD's. I lost my Blue Stripe Pipe, which was the sole reason for the setup. sits nicely on a 25 Lagoon. there are some minor scratches (probably from cleaning) on the inside, but aren't visible once filled. the light can be unbolted and mounted on top of the fuge.. the light hanger is custom made from kydex. light has moon, and regular, and worked well for Macro. fuge is the medium: Water Capacity: 3.60 Gallons Dimensions: 19" L x 4.5" W x 12" T the build is in my signature 200.00 firm includes shipping.

    Par38 growlight question

    I just got this light in the mail yesterday and when I plugged it in it looked a lot more blue then I was expecting as a majority of the LEDs are 660nm. Do our eyes not see this wavelength? This will be my new fuge light and I want to make sure I got the right one! Thanks!
