Natural Lighting for Refugium?


Rick

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any thoughts or opinions regarding Natural Lighting for the refugium? I assume natural lighting would be adequate however I'm not certain. I ask because my sump/refugium is in a perfect position to recieve light during the day. I know having it lit at night would benefit the pH levels however to what extent will this make a difference? (With my lighting schedule on the tank it would only leave 4 to 5 hours of darkness on both at the same time)

I think its a great idea. Sunlight can promote algae (so they say), just keep your phosphates in check. I have natural sunlight in my display every morning, little more algae on the glass but nothing a scrapper cant fix.
