Yeah you were probably looking at the jbj one. The DIY ones are really easy and cheap. All you do is twist some wires and tape it up.

Like I said autotopoff.com, for the double float system was 50-60 bucks and all you do is plug it in. As far as a reservoir goes use a 5 gallon bucket with the lid and drape some fabric over it and put a plant ontop, problem solved!!!!

You won't see it, and it will help a ton. I'm not able to put mine under a stand so I have no clue what I'll do though. If you go on vacation for a week or more at a time, it's a great thing to have,almost a necessity unless people are watching it for you..

I spent the extra few bucks on the JBJ ATO and I feel it was worth it, at least to me. i also wanted something that looks good and was not bulky or homemade looking. lol It was idiot proof to set up which I appreciated alot. lol

It's on sale now at BRS I think for $80 too.....

This thread has been closed. Everybody was warned more than once about OT posts.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, but thankfully they both led to fish stores.
