not at all. if it is laying around put water in it and call it a refugium.:D it really all depends on how much room you have. the bigger the refugium the more live food the display critters will get. i really do not think you can have one to big. it is just most people will want to make the display the biggest glass box they own, not the smallest.:D

Thanks, G. I think I just felt that having the 66 empty would have been a waste, but I'd never heard of anyone with a refugium that big.

I'm going through the same thought process. I'm a newbie and have a new 150g tank. There is a huge storage room underneath it in the basement and I am plumbing down into it for the sump / refug. The LFS guy helping me is putting together a 200g sump / refug. Apart from the cost and the add'l size of the equipment, can't see a lot of downside...

Then again, I am a rookie at this...
