That is an XP Aqua Flood guardian with a Avast Marine Diaphragm pump. I have it set on a smart outlet to run every 3 hrs . You could do the same thing with a Smart ato micro, i just had these parts on hand so I used them.What ATO exactly is that? Parts as well? Buying them tonight LOLOL
Nicely done.. I am not scared of drilling lol
Was contemplating the same top off I use for all my tanks! LOL the Duetto ATO..That is an XP Aqua Flood guardian with a Avast Marine Diaphragm pump.

Its a soft plastic so it was very easy to drill , I used a small bit at first and gradually stepped up to i think a 1/2" bit .Was contemplating the same top off I use for all my tanks! LOL the Duetto ATO..
Right on how hard was it drilling through? Any special kind of bit for your drill? Thanks for the pic too! Sweet sump LOL
Right on! Look most everything right? Lack of nutrients in a way stunts their growth from getting out of hand! Right on. Also if I am able to keep this thing up running and happy for a year I will be pretty pumped.If you don't feed them, baby rock flowers grow pretty slow. I specifically asked about specs in the Q&A and Colin said he hadn't fed them, he was running stock lights, and he'd had them in there a year. I've had baby rock flowers in my main tank and I agree, if I target feed them, they'll get to quarter size pretty fast. If I don't, they grow but slowly.
Way to small for seahorses! Go watch the video youll see how truly small the tank is!That tank would be so cool with dwarf seahorses!
Duetto would work perfectlyThe heat controller is in...
Now ..decisions ..decisions when it comes the ATO I am leaning towards a XP Aqua Duetto
This tank is really fun and intriguing me to see how well I can maintain a tiny tiny established reef.. ZOAS/Macros/ and one more "show" coral will go in and then stocking I am leaning towards sexy shrimp! (hoping to see two pairing off at the LFS then will go for the love birds)
Let me know what you think I should run for the ATO
The whole tank is his and the sandbed is an inch and a half all the way through. Going to see how he takes to it, and if dont see much activity or he begins to grow him out I will swap him out! If and when needed!He's adorable, but I wouldn't put a pistol in a tank that size. They like a lot of space to burrow in. Mine started at about that size, and tunneled all through a 6" by 6" area pretty quickly. Also, they make a mess.
