Product Manuals & Documentation

Part #: AF2SM

With the CPR Aquafuge 2 Hang-On Refugium from Pet Store, you can now enjoy the full benefits of a skimmer, a refugium, and a powerhead in one cleaning device. It now comes in a small size that works just as powerful as the big ones. Plus, it provides you more space to install other aquarium maintenance equipment.

The CPR Aquafuge 2 Hang-On Refugium is built with a powerhead that allows the skimmers and refugium to filter through the water without affecting your fish. This will prevent your pets from experiencing any undeserved trauma while the tank is being cleaned.

While the powerhead is at work, the skimmers and filters clear the water from the presence of both tangible and non-tangible particles and bring them to a collection cup, where they will await disposal. The refugium, on the other hand, is tasked to lower the toxicity level, as well as to maintain the pH level to an appropriate level.

The CPR Aquafuge 2 Hang-On Refugium is great for beginners and amateur aquarists because it includes all the basics on how to take care of one's aquarium water. It doesn't matter what type of water your fish thrive in. This device will definitely take care of your friends.

Say hello to a pleasant, non-space-consuming, clean, and green aquarium with the CPR Aquafuge 2 Hang-on Refugium.

CPR`s AquaFuge2 hang-on refugiums come in three different sizes to meet the needs of marine aquarists.

Recently redesigned with a black acrylic backing to prevent light from transfering to the main aquarium, each model comes with a powerhead and features a unique baffle system. This prevents the substrate and organisms from being disturbed yet also allows enough water to flow through the eliminate any stagnant areas.

The AquaFuge2 provides ideal growth conditions for food items, such as copepods and ampipods, to feed invertebrates and fish in the main tank.

It provides a controlled growing area for macroalgae, which can be used to reduce "nuisance" algae in the main tank and provided a "nursery" area for a variety of organisms.

In 2011, a new outlet tray was added to improve the water return system.

**Please Note: The AquaFuge 2 does not come with a light fixture, although lighting is needed to meet the needs of your refugium inhabitants. Click here for CPR Lighting Options.

Comments: I have been running this on a 100 gallon system for 7 months now. I have a 1" sand bed in it and 2 pounds of LR rubble and Chaeto which has to be cultivated once a week. Great for pod production.

Comments: Ok I don't usually give reviews but I had to for this one. First of all the quality on the HOB refugium is top notch, the set up was a breeze. It took me 5 minutes and I am a beginner in this hobby. I did extensive research about refugium and came to a decision to buy this one thanks in part to NewYorkSteelo from YouTube. I saw that he uses it and gave it really high marks. So far this thing is amazing. I am using this with Fiji Mud on bottom, rubble rock on top and some chaetomorphia algae for a 25 gallon reef tank. Wow, no disturbance of the mud and water is crystal clear. This tank is on my bedroom and the refugium is very very very quiet. No one knows I have a reef tank in my bedroom unless I tell them, yes it's that quiet. The package was overpacked thanks to marinedepot. It was packed so well I thought I was getting a mini fridge lol. I am extremely happy I got this refugium but even more happy I got from marinedepot.com

Quick and easy HOB Product Review by Scott (Posted on 8/3/13)

Excellent!

Comments: This is my second HOB refugium. My first was a Reef Octopus model that was similar. It had a pipe on the outflow and was entirely clear plastic.

The result was constant overflowing of the refugium, a horrible sucking/slurping sound, and light bleed through to the main display. The supply piping had a hard plumbed connection for a very specific pump, and he HOB refugium came with the pump, the problem was it was not adjustable until customer support sent me a valve to install. Even then it took weeks to get it fully functional.

Not the case with the CPR Aquafuge2. My only concern was how weak the pump to fuge connection felt, but I compensated for that by tie-wrapping the power cord to the inlet piping so the pump's weight is getting support.

No danger of overflowing with the outlet design, and power losses are something that you never have to worry about because of that outlet.

I bought the medium and I put my heater in it as well, so it cleared up my main display area quite abit. I also use the area on the internal refugium inlet side to put a bag of chemipure elite and removed my Fluval 206 canister filter entirely as the included RIO pump has about the same flow rate as the Fluval.

I can't say enough good things about this HOB refugium.
