Hello, I used to have a 45g diamond front and a 75g fowlr tank over a decade ago

took plunge again and have a 55g breeder essentially, can’t drill it.

down the line I will get a sump and what not but for time being are there any HoB fuge boxes that are worthwhile? I’ve seen some breeder boxes that can double as them too

what are some pitfalls to setting up in tank using acrylic or glass baffles? I can take my time with this build and do not want to rush anything

any feedback is appreciated

I have read some great reviews on HOB refugium systems.. I have been considering adding one to my own 55G. My issue is that I have a brace in the center of my tank that limits my available width to place a HOB fuge. (the one I think will be best exceeds my available width by about 1 inch :-( *sigh*)

I'm not a fan of those dimensions, personally. If you are committed to that tank, here's an option instead of a hang on back.

Do you care whether or not you have wave action in your reef tank?
