    Hi:

    Did you see the 2nd video on this site? I'm not sure I'm brave enough to go that route, but it does make sense.

    thats the thing, to each his/her own... i just dont like them. and i dont like the risk of them (however small or great it may be) getting in my main tank. i have a small tank and aptaisia would wreck my tank in a matter of weeks...

    an apt. refuge sounds cool though! ive never heard of that!!!:thumbs_up

    They're not for everyone, that's for sure :) I wouldn't dare set up a majano refugium though because nothing eats those damn things so if they get into the main tank, you're pretty much screwed.

    You're welcome.

    It is a neat idea, just scary.;D

    Personally, I've got lots of tube worms living in the sump doing a similar job and they don't bug me when in the main tank.

    Tube worms are also very beneficial in refugiums/tanks/sumps because they're great filter feeders as well :)
