View Full Version : just added sump/fuge

05/30/2007, 04:16 PM
I've added a sump/fuge to my 46G tank. I'm using a CPR hang-on overflow (my tank has not been drilled). There has been a dramatic decrease in algea since using it. I've noticed some talk about adding macro algea to sumps/fuges.

Any recommendations on this? what specific macro algeas are helpful?

P.S. I'm using reverse lighting in the sump (goes on at night).

Most here use Chaetomorpha (cheato). It does not go sexual like caulerpa can. Reverse lighting will help to stabilize pH. Melevsreef.com has some useful info concerning which lightbulb to use.
