Freshwater Refugium

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

In the process of building a new 4ft sump for the new 6x3 tank.

I'm trying to use up as much room in the sump as possible and already have a shed load of media to go in and was thinking about adding an extra baffle to turn into a small refugium. Main reason being the tank will be heavily stocked and will be heavily fed (7 peacock bass) so i'd like to keep Nitrates down.

Just wanted to hear peoples thoughts about a fuge with freshwater?

What plants/moss to use?

should it have substrate? what substrate?

how much lighting? for how long?

I've got a 10watt compact fluorescent light i can throw over it and was thinking about stuffing it with java moss.

opinions please
