    Hi all .
    I have read about the benefits of having a Refugium, and wanted to know who is keeping them and what size.

    I know due to constraints with space that they are not always used but I wanted to know what sizes everyone is keeping with their main DT.

    I am considering using a cube to add to my existing setup , but wanted to ensure I am not wasting my time with a small refugium that will not benefit my tank, the same way a small DSB is to a large tank.
    I have a DSB in my sump with some cheato, so will adding the Refugium add any benefits or not really.
    what size is recommended ?

    I know for mandarins they are great as it gives space for copepods and other micro organisms space to develop

    As always thanks for feedback and advice
