Looks good. Did you come up with a solution for lighting yet?

Let en grief. It does the trick, just spend the extra cash on something cool and rub it in their face.

I have an ATO and I manually dose sometimes. It isn't like you are dumping a cup full of stuff into the sump, yeah know?
Though I must say, life is a ton easier with the ATO and with the ability to use my reeflink to control my vortechs and radions.

That would be good but I'd need 4 at least on this tank and at almost $1000 each I can't justify it

I absolute love my AutoAqua Smart ATO. I highly recommend it if you're looking to get one in the future. EBay Chinese LEDs? Fine by me. Can't beat them for the price, I've had no complaints on mine. Though there are some really nice features on the high end LEDs.
