I've been following your build!
You've had a lot more trouble with your build than me lol.
I wish you the best of luck with adding fish and inverts!

Thanks! Do you issues keeping salinity stable? I was actually thinking of maybe just doing a reef tank with inverts. Live stock is still up in the air.

Actually no, I keep a gallon jug of r/o water next to it and fill it up as it goes down.
So it pretty much stays stable.

You can always set up an ATO system. Even if you aren't running a sump (or have no room for a float) you can put a dosing pump on a timer to replace water. They move like 3 gallons of water an hour only so you can run fir a set time and throttle with a small air pump valve. Cost you like $30 to make.

No mine has a glass top.
I didn't even know the tank came with a top when I bought it, turned out wonderful.
