I would like to work on my water changing system. I am thinking of trying to get some large tanks installed in my crawl space, maybe RV tanks with remote level sensors inside the house. It would be awesome to just put a hose in the tank to fill it instead of dragging buckets all over the place.

I voted goal with no plan because I am not 100% sure how I would do it. I would need to insulate and heat my crawl space atleast to 50F, and set up some sort of CO tool box to turn on and off RO/DI, transfer pumps, mixing pumps ect, as well as have some way to get salt into the mixing tank.

Thanks very much. This helps quite a bit. I have a small tank and as one member said here I flew by the seat of my pants totally ignorant of everything. Lost a lot of coral $$$, plus did not make me feel very responsible. So trying to avoid the same results. Start slow, and eventually get brave enough to try SPS, and LPS again. Right now in my small tank have mushrooms orange violet, and green which breed like rabbits, and a leather which I have split twice now
Found Wikipediae very helpful

Clean up my wiring behind the tank. Be more disciplined about water changes. (I currently do them about once every 10 days). Remove my bubble algae infestation (it's starting to disappear!). Muck around with the tank less - let everything be and see what happens.
