Got the refugium ordered not as big as I wanted, only slightly smaller but I have bought it as a full kit with led light( if that is much cop) pump, sand and caribsea mineral mud.
Expecting a delivery of a 20lb box of caribsea life rock shapes. Might go for a 20lb standard caribsea box later on.
I'm working on getting a deal sorted for the lights though that's in progress.
I was thinking of going with TMC eco sand but it's really fine looking, even the more course stuff dosent look great. The problem being is that I'll still be using my old crossflow cp40 which is pretty powerful even on the low settings. I can't be doing with the faf of sand blowing about. So as a compromise I've decided to go with Florida crushed coral sand, its alot chunkier and holds calcium and pH well, allegedly. That's it for now. Gives me something to do whilst I'm on furlough. 👍
