BioCube extra filtration refugium and canister
« on: February 14, 2018, 01:55:26 »

recently picked up a nice canister filter for cheap couldn't pass it up , Now my question is can I turn the back of my biocube into a large refugium taking out all the media just running rubble rock or mud and a lot of chato and other moss. Then running all my media in my canister filter? I know I need to stay up on changing and cleaning my canister out to make it not a nitrate magnate 
it is a 32 gallon led biocube set up with coral and fish
thanks so much for your input

  I would say yes with a couple of exceptions or watch outs, one -    you would need a small LED for the Chaeto - you would still need to clean the Fug now and then but having the filter media out of the back chamber may not be a bad thing, easier to clean and of course you need to pump water out to the canister. Keep us posted on progress!!!
