I need some ideas/advice on the best place to put a refugium in my nuvo lagoon 25’s sump section. If you have done it or know how you’re going to do it let me see/know please!!

If the lagoon's sump section is similar to the nuvo 20's, I'd put it right in either one of the first drain chambers. The upside down T section where the return pump sits gets very little flow, not to mention it's hard to reach in to those areas.

. I am assuming they are pretty close but I have no idea . I was thinking in that section as well. Reef Zen makes a mushroom box but I was thinking I might be able to turn into an intank fuge, they also make a copepod hotel that I think might slide into one of those sections But I’m not 100% sure on that.
