Eshopps R-100 2nd Generation Single Intake Refugium - 75-125 Gallons Information



Part #: 12855

Sizes to fit 75 gal to 300 gal tanks. A refugium can be used for something as simple as just increasing your water volume or it can enhance your tank` performance and stability in many, many ways. It is a miniature ecosystem attached to your main tank often housing isolated populations of sensitive animals or plants. Much like a greenhouse on a space ship, a refugium will improve the quality of your saltwater system by adding extra filtration, bio-nutrients and other food sources as well as giving refuge to sensitive species.

Refugiums can be used to keep the peace in your salt water tank: used as a refuge chamber for the more delicate species such as sea horses and peppermint shrimp (to name just two) who would otherwise become a food source for the other inhabitants of the tank. It can also provide a place to raise fry in a tank that shares the water with their birth tank Refugiums can be used to supply live food and planktons to your aquarium. They are well suited to cultivate food sources such as algae and micro-fauna separate from the predation by herbivorous inhabitants of the main tank. Cultivating Caulerpa and other macroalgaes can help to consume ammonia/nitrates and phosphates that accumulate in your tank. Refugiums can help maintain pH levels.

  • 3 ft x 1 Inch Drain Hose
  • 1 Inch Bulkhead
  • Filter Sponge
  • Micron Bag

Great sump for the price Product Review by SCOTT ALLEN (Posted on 11/9/12)

Excellent!

Comments: Great sump. Acrylic could be thicker. I like the sump fits my Vertex skimmer, but it is a bit tight. Large 2nd chamber for refuge. For the price you can't go wrong.

great value Product Review by SCOTT PLETCHER (Posted on 8/28/12)

Great!

Comments: My 75 gal mixed reef tank has already begun to look better then the wet/ dry sump setup. Only complaint is it did not come with the black foam shown in all promotional pictures. It seems to be the right size for my tank. Get the largest that will fit under your tank. I had to remove a support to get it to fit , but all is better now. Flow from my danner mag 12 is great. the7" micron rectangles can be very hard to find online. buy extras from the start. seems very well made. my protein skimmer dropped right in the first chamber easily. fuge center section is almost square14"with 10 inches of depth. great price and ups ground shipping

Good basic Sump Product Review by DON (Posted on 3/15/12)

Great!

Comments: I received the Refugium / Sump by UPS. There were 2 holes bashed into the box, but the product was totally undamaged, so just a bit of a scare there.

The product is not quite what the picture shows. The picture shows a bubble trap between each of the 3 chambers, the actual product only has a bubble trap between the refugium and the return chamber. There is only a single wall between the protein skimmer chamber and the refugium. I was a little disappointed in that.

I had to add a couple of 4" pieces of 1" PVC pipe going down into the filter sock, otherwise it splashed all over the inside of my cabinet.

This is a very basic sump, but for the price it is a good deal and does what is needed. Some probe holders would be nice, as would a return splash tower, but overall it is doing exactly what I wanted it to do.
