Refugiums provide a natural filtration solution for enhancing and maintaining healthy conditions in the marine aquarium. As macroalgae grows in a controlled area with light and water flow, unwanted nutrients such as phosphates and nitrates are exported to prevent the growth of nuisance algae. They provide a natural food source for your aquarium inhabitants thereby create a thriving mini-ecosystem. They also help stabilize the pH and oxygen levels consistently throughout the day by absorbing CO2 gas during evening hours when the main tank lights are off.
Refugium Lighting Tips
The Refugium LED Light should be set for a 10-14 hour daily photoperiod to provide sufficient light without encouraging over-aggressive growth. This is achieved through the use of a timer to automate the light schedule. We advise that you run the refugium lights on a reverse or opposite schedule from the main aquarium lighting for the added benefit of stabilizing pH and maintaining a higher oxygen level at night.
