Ugh that stinks. At least you caught it before it went everywhere. Glad you figured it out and it's working well now.
Yes, could have been a major pain in the butt. I’m actually looking forward to changing the media. Going make maintenance a little easier which is great because I’m lazy. I may end up getting another top so I can just swap them out.

Do you think this can work for biopellets as well?

So...tired of hearing the DOS running for auto water change in the living room. Also, tired of hearing the wife asking “is that going to run all day?” Lol

Ordered some Orange and White 1/4” tubing from Buckeye Hydro. It came in today so while the wife was away I ran to lines from the garage water station to the tank. Tomorrow I’ll finish Cleaning up the lines and move the DOS to the garage.

Here is what it’s pulled in 36hrs with no break in period and not dialed in yet! I’m already impressed lol

Also modified my lids to work for now. I’ll get with Zen Reef for new ones after I get my Reactor. AD49BEA6-818C-435A-9842-65036BBD9AB0.jpeg75F93913-12B0-4609-AB87-CA29B7A108DA.jpeg F2E49854-4B6A-48F5-AF0C-CF3DCA40854A.jpeg

This build is ridiculously incredible! I am building the Waterbox 7226 and I have a Pentair UV light that is a beast. What clamps are you using for your UV light and where did you purchase them? BTW, I see you have a flag box on your mantle. I have one too....retired USAF. Thanks for serving! I will start posting some pics in the near future.

Thanks, it was a fun build. I picked up the UV from a friend who already had the brackets. BRS sell them and I suggest getting them. Makes life so much easier. The Flag is my fathers. They gave it to me when we laid him to rest. He was in the Navy. Thank you for your service! - Chris

ok I am the king of lazy. I picked up a used ATK because I wanted to use two more optical sensors. I have the extra Pmup that came with it so I’m going to use that to refill the ATO container from the RODI in the garage. I was just going to run the 1/4” line inside when I needed to refill it. Then I realized for $20 I could run one more line along my AWC lines and not have to roll out the hose when I needed it. Besides I have not replaced the baseboards yet! So, I just ordered another 120ft of tubing.

Automation is king!

Well, I ran my RODI line from the garage and can now refill my ATO as needed while sitting on the couch.

I added a second leak sensor in the cabinet behind all the equipment, you can never be too safe. Also added a flow sensor to my UV since I found it clogged up once. Now I can get alearts before that happens again.

I ordered a lid from ClearView lids finally. After a year or so of wanting one. Figure I’m keeping this tank for a while so why not. I ordered a standard lid and a week later the new Pisces EXO lid info came out. Kerri took care of me even though I had already over Heated her server with email questions. She changed my order to the new lid. Put me a little farther out one receiving it but I think it will be worth the wait. Although I do hate waiting for stuff.

I installed some 3D printed MP40 covers today. I picked up a sea hare the other day and would rather be safe than sorry. Plus I have 16 nems that I don’t want to grind up. I ordered Orange but should have gotten black since you never saw the rear MP40s before.

Think that’s it. Been adding fish and more fish as well as some coral but not much yet.

Replaced the doors in the house so I had to trim some more Sheetrock to fit all three tubes. Lines are all tucked in and test fitted the new trim. The wife will never know lol

Looks like an automatic trim molding fitting device in the last picture. :cool:
