https://www.marinedepot.com/filters/refugiums In biological terms, a refugium is a remote location that protects and supports a wildlife population. A reef refugium is based on this principle and works specifically to benefit your reef tank.
The idea behind a reef refugium is to provide an isolated environment, seperate from the main aquarium for the cultivation of macroalgae, plankton and biological denitrification.
The first step on your road to refugium greatness is decide what type is suitable for your tank. No matter what type of fuge you set up, your reef tank is sure to benefit from less nuisance algae, lower nitrate and phosphate and lots of live foods for your fish and corals.
