    I appreciate the advice. I can see that your strategy works for sps. Do you think lps would likely be as happy under the same conditions?

    Works just as good for lps if you want a little more nutrients in your water just run your refugium light less. I only run mine 6 hrs a day but you could even run the light every other day if you really didn't have much for the algae to feed on. That's one of my favorite things about using a refugium over other filtration you can control the nutrient uptake by running the light longer or shorter.

    Thanks. That gives me some ideas. Does any of the macro escape into your display? If so, do your tangs consider that food?

    I run the water to the refugium with a small pump and it feeds back into a small filter sock at around 100-150gph the sock is just to catch any algae that gets out but as long as it's healthy it doesn't shed too much. Most of my tangs don't like chaeto
