In general, this refugium is well built and functional. The instructions for the pump are a bit confusing. Those suction cups just barely hold the weight, and when you do a water change, the refugium tends to slip down the side of the main tank (I have an acrylic tank). The only way to get it back near the top is to remove it from the main tank completely - the suction cups will come off the refugium if you try to slide it back to the top.

Also, be very careful about putting fish of a certain size in this. My beautiful male betta, Lafayette, had a brush with death in this thing. He found one of the circulation holes and managed to squeeze almost all the way through in an effort to get at my female betta. Unfortunately, he got stuck, and couldn't go forward or back. He was injured somewhat severely in my attempts to rescue him - his beard, most of his pectoral fins, a large patch of scales on his head and back, and a smaller patch of skin beneath the lost scales were torn off. Three days later, it looks like he'll make a complete recovery, but there's no way I'm putting him back in the refugium unless I can find a way to keep him out of the circulation holes.

the refugium is solidly built and sturdy. the bumper burned out in a few days. buy the one without the pump, theres another listing on amazon for it and itll save you a few bucks. work out circulation another way.
