Hey Josh, nice design to try. Only thing I can see is that the water going into your refugium isn't getting filtered much. How about using a HMF design ( with a medium Poret foam), with the inlet flowing through it into the refugium. Besides filtering, your shrimp and/or fry will love eating all the stuff that will inhabit it. I've seen where you can have the HMF be just in a corner so it won't take up too much space. But again what do I know! Easy to be an armchair quarterback!!!

Josh, I did some research, check out SwissTropicals for the Poret foam corner HMFs . They can customize them to your non standard tank. I also just received some MarinePure bio media ( the spheres). Looking forward to see if they are as good as they claim.

Can't you just make the inlet pipes go half way or more down in the refugium so the water is forced to go through the sponges or will that creat a problem?
