The NEW Cube Nano Refugium features innovative design with dual water channels for superior aquarium filtration. It features two separate water channels; one channel sends water to the refugium section while the second chamber sends water to the protein skimmer chamber. This unique design enables the water to travel through each compartment separately after entering the sump for better water contact time and better nutrient exportation. The advantage of better water contact time thru the water channels is the undissolved organic waste can be removed more efficiently by the protein skimmer, while having a completely separate refugium channel that allows macro-algae to aid in the removal of ammonia, nitrates, phosphates and other unwanted nutrients that cause algae blooms and more.

Q
Can an algae turf scrubber be used in place of micro algae in the refugium chamber?
Asked : Oct 23, 2018

A
Hi Paul - yes you can add an algae scrubber in the chamber. Some folks also use it for additional media, or a reactor. It's totally your preference.

PROS
solid seams, well built
CONS
small return chamber, refugium lacks flow, intake doesn't filter through sock much
REVIEW
Sump is well built but lacks in areas. The way it is built most of your water seems to end up going through the fuge and dosnt filter into the sock. With that said the force of the flow into the fuge chamber is lacking. The return chamber is pretty small and most of the DC return pumps will not fit....Read More

Nice build
CONS
No refugium flow
REVIEW
I bought this sump used with a 35g cube tank. The sump is very well crafted, but not very well designed. All my flow goes thru the filter sock into the skimmer section and there is barely a trickle of water coming out of my refugium section. I cannot grow macro algae in it as there is not enough flo...Read More

PROS
Great quality
CONS
Poor skimmer flow
REVIEW
The build quality is great. I have an issue with the design. I feel that the locations of the fuge and skimmer should be swapped. The skimmer compartment gets very little flow, and the fuge flow contributes to about 80% of the return's water supply. Without enough flow to the skimmer, I'll be re-ski...Read More

PROS
More water volume for stability, more room for skimmer
CONS
would benefit from a gate or baffle to adjust water flow through the chambers
REVIEW
I bought this to use with my Biocube 29. Fits well under the cabinet, and made a big difference to the overall stability of the system. I had the same issue with the water not passing through the filter sock that was mentioned in another review. I added a plastic plate to my refugium to raise the...Read More

REVIEW
I loved the workmanship and design of this sump. It was super clean. However, I did not measure the hole in my cabinet correctly and it was 1/2 inch too big. Unfortunately I had to return it.
