Refugium DSB sifters


Recommended Posts

So, I have a DSB in my refugium/ sump (working great to keep down the nitrates(clap)). The problem is, the DSB portion of the refugium is only about 4 gals with the baffles and all. What is a good sand sifter to put in there? A cuke will probably be to big, a goby will swim out, snails climb over the baffles, and stars eat all the goodies. Is there anything else? What does everyone else use?

If its an established system its no doubt already seeded and live, especially if its keeping his nitrates down, so no need to really add more LS. You could add a few nassarius snails to the mix, should keep the top portion of your DSB clean and clear. Anything more then that and I would just ditch the DSB because it would be useless.
