    Fantastic collection FS. I'd like to know more about your fuge. How big is it? What is growing in it ? What's your sand bed like? The reason I'm asking is that I'm seeing up a fuge in the sump of my 120. It's about 20 gallons and I want to get the most out of it. I'm thinking of nutrient export via chaeto, as will as trying to get pods growing to filter into the display tank.

    My refugium is a 10gal with chaeto and a circulation pump for flow and a 30w led flood light. It doesn't have sand or rock because they would just collect detritus. I'll try to remember to get a pic of it and some corals tomorrow.

    Thanks for the reply. Sounds like it's best to go with all macro or DSB/rock, but not both. Guess I could always change it if one isn't working.

    The problem with rock or a deep sand bed is they mostly use nitrates and will not remove phosphates as well as the chaeto. I have had very good luck with very little rock and no sand in my system the algae does an impressive job at removing nutrients if it gets the amount of light it needs. I'd start with the algae and like you said if you wanted to you could add the other.
