Top off system

I am currently running hydor's water level controller. It's ok but it doesn't go to the max level just stops at the min. What is a good auto top off system for a 12 gallon tank.Click image for larger version

The Tunze Osmolator.

I am not familiar with the Hydor but is there no way to tweak your current setup? Is it possible/safe to just bring the max and the in closer together?

I used JBJ's ATO with a Tom's Aqualifter. I really liked it on my 55 reef.

I made one. Had a bunch of stuff on the shelf, ordered float switches and relay. Fun little build if you're into diy.
I'm not really here... fell in the tank and my phone is just that smart
