So I attached a pic of my rear sump. I used the JBJ specs sheet JBJ sent me. Dont look at the measurements as they are all off! The JBJ specsheet must have been for a prototype as it didnt even include two compartments one on each side of the pump. From left to right my filtration is as follows.

1. 4” filter sock
2. Refugium with home made DIY basket.
3. Heater column fairly large compartment about three inches wide.
4. Pump compartment in center
5. Currently empty just a sponge on top to capture micro bubbles from the skimmer. Thinking of adding a calcium reactor.
6. Skimmer Compartment
7. 4” filter sock

Hello, Nice tank! I have a question on your JBJ65 refrugium setup. Im just setting up my JBJ65, cycling it right now but intend to set things up the way you have it with a skimmer on one side and refrugium on the opposite side. Do you have any pictures of your DIY homemade fuge basket? Ive been searching around and haven't found anything out there that would be perfect so I may build something and Id like to avoid mistakes. Id like something with dark acrylic sides that would keep light from spreading to the filter sock and heater sections, but perhaps not needed.

Just curious to learn a little more about what you did, if you are growing chaeto and if you have any regrets or changes that you would make to it to improve.

Also how do you like that TUnze 9004 on the JBJ65 gallon? Ive been leaning towards that as itll fit nicely and seems to get positive reviews once its dialed in but also wasnt sure if it was slightly undersized for medium level bioload. Judging by your pics, it seems to work well.

Appreciate any feedback you can offer.
Thanks!

I have a jbj65 and can send you pics of my refugium. I have yet to set it up completely but there’s different ways of going about it. Also I was using the 9004 skimmer but recently swamped it out to a better one that drops in. Pm me I can send you pics
