Hello all! I've been lurking on the forums for a few months, researching a future build for a first reef tank. That said I have a hypothetical build is like to bounce off of more experienced members. Equipment: Traditional rimmed 20 gallon long Diy stand (I already have these from an old planted tank) Eheim 100 watt heater Current USA orbit IC light Current USA 660 gph wave pumps x2 or Koralia equivalent wave pumps x2 Finnex hob refugium with fugeray and water pump RO buddie ATO Livestock: GSP Mushroom Algae barns pod starter pack Firefish x1 and Banggai cardinal x1 or Firefish x2 An appropriate clean up crew (still Researching) Dry rock This is the current list. I still have about 8-10 months of research to conduct, but I wanted to put this out there to get some feedback to help focus my research. Thank you!
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.
