Floats, relay, pump and wire is all you really need. Depends on how fancy you want to make it. Floats can be found on ebay or one of the site sponsors.

*180 gal Display, 100 gal basement sump, 33 gal refugium, 3x250 MH, 2x160 VHO actinics, zoos, some softies, LPS & lots of acros and other SPS.
*100 gal prop tank plumbed into main system w/ 2x96 PC lights and 1x150 MH,

Well, if you want to go "hi-tech", you can have a look at what I built for myself.


Do a search here for top off, and also on Google. There is a wealth of information available for that purpose. You can go as low tech to as hi-tech as you want. It is mostly a matter of requirements, expertise and $$ Good luck.
