90 Gallon Salwater Refugium Update

I recently pulled a bunch of algae out of the refuge and thought I would take a couple update photos. The peacock mantis shrimp is the only creature living in the refugium. He pretty much lives in a conch shell buried in the rocks on the right side of the tank. He often chops off pieces of SPS coral to build with, lol. Since the damselfish removal the bug population has exploded! I’m really happy to have the bugs/pods back!

  1. Man, I need a refugium. When we move into our new house and get a larger tank, I am going to have to build one.

  2. Definitely a good idea!
