NextReef Stick On Refugiums are Designed to work with Chaetomorpha (Chaeto) algae and other macro algae, they install directly in your tank or sump.  The natural water flow around the refugium is all they need for circulation - they require no power, and are virtually maintenance free.  Just install them anywhere with moderate light and add macro algae.  As the macro algae grows, it can be discarded, or shared with other hobbyists.

How do they work?  It's simple - NextReef Stick On Refugiums provide a sheltered area for macro algae to grow.  The macro algae, like Chaeto, feeds on the same nutrients (Phosphates, etc.) as nuisance algae, essential starving the nuisance varieties while naturally scrubbing your waterStick one to the back of any aquarium, or install them in a sump for additional filtration.

Which size is best?  We feel you can never have too large of a refugium - if you have the room, choose the larger size.  Multiples work great, too.

Where can I purchase Chaeto?  Is it expensive?  Your local fish store is always the best choice, and it's usually available from other local aquarium enthusiasts.  Online livestock retailers also offer Chaeto.  It's inexpensive, and virtually impossible to kill.

Like all NextReef products, they're made in the USA.
