See id love to do that but i really dont want to have any operating equipment outside the footprint of the tank. Theres prob a 5-6" gap on the left side between wall and tank, if i could find a decent sized plastic container, id squeeze it in there. All in all, wherever i put it, im only going to have enough space for a few gallons. 6 if im lucky

Huma- how is your wp40 working out? Is that the only power head you have on the tank? I just ordered 2 wp25's for $100. I hope I like them. I've heard great things about them all. Your tank is coming along nicely.

Havent gotten my hands on it yet. It is going to be run alongside my 2 evo 750's until i can order another wp40 (pending if i like it or not) ive heard that the build quality is a bit iffy but their performance is solid. Im sure ill throw my 2 cents in once i get some time with it. And thank you for the compliment i can honestly say that its come a very long way since i bought this setup and i feel as though my maturity as a saltie is reflected in the tank now.

Some of the utube videos of the wavemakers are insane. I'm going to see how I like the 2 25's. If they're not enough ill add 2 hydor 1400's, then eventually get 2 40's. Post a fts!

My ATO is a 12v sol valve that is triggered by my reef keeper float switch. I have not hooked everything up yet but do you see any flaws in doing that. It is coming straight from my rodi.

No not at all a lot of people do it that way also. Reason why I did not is the tank is on the other side of the laundry room but we just got the home when I'm done redoing the man cave one of my rodi lines will be ran to my sump as the ato.

I personally wouldnt run a direct line from the rodi to the tank. I dont like the idea that if something were to go wrong (float switch comes loose, malfunctions etc) you have a neverending supply of water that could start filling your tank. Having a 5-10g dedicated to ato, even if something goes wrong, its only going to put 5-10g into the dt.
