Here's an update anyway:
Forgot to add that I'm cutting my light cycle back down. I think that's most of my algae problem.

Your tank is definitely progressing. Keep at it and get some top off. Your salinity has got to be going crazy.

Thanks. It is my pride and joy. Salinity stays at a pretty even 1.025 since I'm constantly having to top of and change water.

Just came across your thread. 15g a week, holy cow. Get an ATO, well worth the money and saves your back. Single best investment I've made.

I've always been really curious as to how ATO's work. Might be an investment I need to make! I don't have an RO/DI system though. Any info on them?

Pretty simple float valve.. When the water level
Drops, a ball or level will turn a pump on which is Plumed into some rodi water. Very good investment

Yup that simple. Lots of auto top off systems available, some are really fancy and others are more rudimentary, Prices go along accordingly. I personally use a rudimentary ATO, I got mine from autotopoff.com. Nothing fancy but it works well.

Ahhhh. I can't even hang my skimmer on the back. I think I'm stuck hoping a lid will fix it for a little while. Thank you guys for the information! I want one really bad.
