Dun really need a refugium.

Just have lots and lots of LR, in tank, and sump. Tt's what i'm doing now, no need for a seperate refugium. Just dump the whole lot of LR into the sump

Phyto for feeding the creatures in the LR. :lol:

wat if dun have a sump ? but lots of LRs in the tank ?

can it be done ? does the water nd to be tip top condition ?

the water doesnt need to be in tip top water condidtion..any condidtion will do....for example when cycling...thats when the pods mulitply alot because theres no predators....but they still multiply despite the water quality....alot of live rocks does help...but then you cant really culture them cos your tank has a lot of predators..

they are visible to the ###### eye...

just catch the amount required and dump them into the tank. those that escape will reproduce, still a constant food source to your tank!

bro chinmo, can pass 10 pods for me to cultivate?

:lol:
