All accessories, including a PH-101 Water pump, are include to get the system of your choice up and running out of the box. For those needing increased water flow throughout the multi-functional box, the PH-101 Water pump allows more ample and adjustable water flow.

The box may be used as a quarantine area for sick or fish needing a quite zone to re-coupe. The lower flow gives fish a stable environment without giving them much stress. Ideal for both fresh and saltwater aquariums, some may use it to selective breed their most prized shrimps and fish. Or, simply use it to house a betta, without having a bulky housing taking up space inside your aquarium. Remove the removable baffles for additional space and attach any clip light to have your refugium thriving. The multifunctional box can be used as a refugium filtration system where pods and cheato can further cycle one's aquarium as well as lowering nitrates. 

Specifications:

  • Dimensions: 10.25" x 5.5 x 5
  • Flow Rate: 32 GPH
  • Power: 4W
  • Gallons: 1 Gallon.

Questions on Finnex Hang-On-Back Breeding Box - Refugium, Large with Powerhead

  • From Greg at 12/10/2014 1:21 PM
    • If the power head goes out on that hang over the back refeguim, how do I order another one?
    • We will carry these pumps in stock in the near future
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Jared at 5/5/2015 4:33 PM
    • Would this model be adequate for a 64 bow front tank? I'm not looking to use it as a filtration method, more of a natural food source/way to keep nitrates etc... at a proper level.
    • Jared, When it comes to refugiums, larger is always better. This unit will make a difference on 64 gal system but I would recommend going with larger hang on back unit for optimal results.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Scott at 6/25/2015 11:54 AM
    • I have a 50g reef tank. I have a lot of flow currently from power heads, but would love to have this for the refugium benefits.

      I had been running a HOB Filter for extra flow and a makeshift fuge, but was getting an insane amount of bubbles coming in from the return. So much so that it looked like a dust storm in the tank.

      Are there any issues with this product releasing bubbles into the tank from the return?
    • Scott,
      You will have no issues with micro bubbles with this unit.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Robert at 11/4/2015 1:25 PM
  • From Jeanne at 2/1/2016 7:48 PM
    • Will a skimmer for a nano tank fit in it?
    • Jeanne, This refugium is too shallow to fit any functional protein skimmer.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No

  1. Affordable lil refugium Review by Chris
    Product Rating:

    For the price of this little guy it's well worth adding to you system. Shipping was super fast we are using it for a pod house for our 125 gallon community reef tank. (Posted on 1/6/2016)

  2. Just great Review by Roy
    Product Rating:

    I use with the power head or just a air line. Works great with my Cory eggs! (Posted on 12/7/2015)

  3. Just in the nick of time! Review by J'EV
    Product Rating:

    No sooner that when I received this refugium/breeding box did I notice several tiny broods of Micky Mouse platys dashing back and forth under the rocks in my 70-gal fish tank. I was able to scoop up 4 tiny fry and placed them in the breeding box. Had I not received this HOB box in time, I wouldn't have a proper place to isolate them. The poor fry would have all perished and got eaten by the bigger fish in my tank. It's exciting to watch them swimming around, enjoying their new home, knowing they'll now have a chance to grow in a safe and healthy surrounding. Thanks, Finnex. You came just in the nick of time.

  4. Great little refungium Review by Michelle
    Product Rating:

    This is a great little refugium for the money, it is easy to install and works as advertised... (Posted on 11/9/2015)

  5. Great Accessory Review by Greg
    Product Rating:

    I love this thing. It adds whole new level of bio diversity to my 20 gallon reef. Definitely recommend. (Posted on 2/8/2015)

  6. Really neat Review by Derek
    Product Rating:

    Finnex makes great stuff, and this is no exception. I really neat little box to use as either a breeder tank or external refugium. Will the refugium provide sufficient filtration for a tank? Most definitely not, but its great for growing live foods, housing algae to control algae in the main tank, or just looking cool. Search for images of this online and you will see some really neat setups. Real nice product. (Posted on 2/4/2015)
