JBJ brand ATO witha Maxijet 1200 (maybe 900, I forgot) and flex tube. When I had my 72g, top-off was a pain every other day. Would let it slip 5 days at times. Considering my canopy and 3x150 MHs, I lose about 3-5g a day. The 37g lets me rest for almost 2 weeks.

sump/refuge doesn't always have to be one tank.
I started with a 15gal sump with 3 sections and didnt like it, the refuge area was only about 5gal. so I got a 10gal tank to use as a refuge, then my new skimmer wouldn't fit under the tank so I got another 10gal and drilled some holes and put it all together.
