I am a beginner. Just looking for some guidance for my sump/refugium.
I was planning on having a slow flow refugium, and a high flow, area for the skimmer. Is this a good idea? Or should I just have the same flow rate through both the Skimmer zone and the refugium? If they are the same flow, then they are all connected in line. But I hear there are fun benifits to having slow flow in the refugium.
If they are different flow rates, then they would need to be in separate zones, and each zone would need its own different intake (seel below), which is
