Do you wanna get that complicated? There's some much easier solutions for that.


Btw, Welcome to AA!

The complications start when the SG isn't kept level. I have top offs on all 3 of my tanks and this is the switch I like http://autotopoff.com/MISC/nano_switch_bracket.jpg there is another one with a dual swtich but it leaves little room in the back chamber. Last year I topped off my tanks 2 times a day in the summer and still had problems keeping the SG within reason. My tanks are open so there is a lot of evaporation.

PETCO Water Bottles for Small Animals at PETCO

Find one that will fit into (preferably chamber 3) one of the back chambers in the Biocube, get the little metal ball in the tube out, and Voila! ATO
