Hey everyone...

Just got my waterbox in yesterday and I want to convert the ato in the sump to a Refugium...

I saw another member on here use a t fitting on the return line to tie in a gate valve that feeds into the ato to allow it to spill over into the skimmer and return chambers.

My question is what size t fitting will I need to get to tie into the return line. Here is a pic for reference

I don’t know the answer to your question, but that looks like a great set up. I have the same tank, this makes me regret going with the return pump i chose and no manifold. I may feed a Fuge their with a maxi jet.

Thanks for the tip! I found out the new waterbox plumbing is sent out with a t on the return line that includes a standard ½” threaded output!
Hello, I bought the 70.3 water box aquarium and I too am looking for a way to tie in a refugium. I am very confused on how to go about doing this?

If you have a new one with the new plumbing your return line should have a ¼” threaded out put on the t going up to the tank. You can just tie in 1/4” pvc from there to where you want to run the Refugium.
