Tnanks for allowing me to join. I had a 55 gallon long about 15 years ago. It was done on a budget and effected my enjoyment in the hobby. This time I made sure to correct all the mistakes I made before and also added automation to help make the hobby more enjoyable. I added water to the tank June 16th. Currently I have two clowns, two cardinals, a fox face, a lawnmower blenny, 6 lined wrasse, yellow tang.

Really nice lay out, I like the roller mat and you even got the back up battery in there. So you are using an external ATO tank outside the cabinet?
Yes I have a mixing station in my basement. I have 3 60 gallon fruit juice barrels. One I store fresh RODI. In this tank I have the pmup for the ATK. I have that barrel plumbed to my second tank that I use for mixing and storing fresh saltwater. The third tank I setup to store old saltwater but i am working on draining my old saltwater outside. I want to do this the same time I vent my skimmer. I mounted both of my Dos systems on a control wall above the storage tanks. I still have some work to do before I’ll share any pics of those. Lol.
