    Hey guys I know that alot of you guys have refugiums (sorry if I spelt that wrong.) I was wondering do any of you guys put any type of creture in there? I know some people do that and some people don't, please answer. Thanks :mrgreen:

    I've tossed some snails or crabs in there but only because they were ones that were pests in the main display, so they got banished to the fuge. lol

    I will also occasionally dump a bottle of live copods in there.

    I put some stupid nerite snails in there that kept climbing out of my DT. Other than that I haven't purposely put anything else in there.

    That's what lots of people use it for. They put their naughty crabs and starfish in it. ;)

    I will say it's like anything in this hobby, just because mine's behaved doesn't mean others will.
