I was just wondering if there was any benefit to running a fuge, instead of a sump, with a FOWLR? What about a FOWLR with a few softies?
Probably just like a hydoeletric dam, fish hang out under it to eat the chopped up fish that go through the turbineslapshot said:Huge advantage. I have a 150 FOWLR. I addded a fuge to my tank 6 months ago. Really my fish have never looked better. I also put some of the macro in my tank on a clip and my angel is in heaven. My Nitrates went from 20 NO3- to 0 in a few months. I don't think I would ever run a tank without one again. In my humble opinion one of the best things to come along since the power head. Now, I run a sump and a skimmer with the fuge. You can not believe how healthy and fat my fish are. They hang at the inlet pipe a lot so I know it is spitting out little stuff for them to eat even though the fuge is attached to my sump so whatever must make the trip through the pump first. I built it for less than $20.00 plus my magnum 300. You won't be sorry.
