As title says, want to buy a refugium for my 72g bowfront. My current in-tank one is just too unsightly to look at anymore. New or used, whatever you've got, preferably complete with light etc and not excessively expensive :D

Can probably pick up depending where you're selling from.
Thanks!

If you're looking for something small you could use an aquaclear 300 and stick a desk lamp on it. That is a cheap way to do a refuge and it takes up little space...

I was checking out the CPR Aquafuge at J&L the other day - super cool, if you don't mind spending a bit of money.

Currently, I'm building a DIY one. If it goes well, I'll tell you how I did it. ;)

Tang- I thought about converting a filter of some kind, and looked into it a bit, but I'd really rather just get a proper one and use it for what it's made for. I'm pretty cheap, but I figure this is worth spending a bit of money on to do it right.

Otter- I've looked at the Aquafuge as well, it's beautiful.. but it is quite pricey, which would be fine if the light wasn't a whole lot extra on top of it. I would love to hear how your diy project turns out, if I can't find something in the next little while I'll either resort to ebay or build/have one built myself :3

CPR AquaFuge Small Size

I know you were looking a long time ago. Have you found one? I have a small one that I am thinking of selling.

I know have a refugium in my sump so really do not need the hang on one.

Let me know!

I've got some large breeder boxes coming in which you can use as a refugium. They are just a tad smaller than the AC300 though but it's clear so you can see through them easily and they have lids and a control valve so that you can control the amount of water flowing in/out of the refugium
