    If you could have the option between the 2 which 1 would you take, Bear in mind that there is limited space underneath the stand and i do not want to have the fuge above the dsb?
    Pros and cons?

    Sorry should have mentioned that I want Both

    Mark now therein lies the problem. I want to be able to clean the DSB, My current dSB is my fuge as well. TONS of life in there BUT it will be an issue to take out 10kg+ of liverock to clean the DSB, PLus you get accummalated detritus that setlles on the LR over time.

    Do teh two together. Place the refugium on top of the DSB but bear in mind that if you go with probiotics macroalgae wont grow as they are starved of nutrients

    Thanks Tony, Would really not want to use any probiotics, want to keep the tank as simple and natural as possible so dont need to tinker with it on a daily basis.
