I just got my Cade 1800 s2 set up and running (Day 4). I have a lot to learn as I am new to the hobby. I am running Hydros controllers, and reef Octopus pumps and skimmer. I made the mistake of trying to run a separate pump to run the UV and it was pushing water through the main pump. So now I have a Varios 4 that will be un-used and just did a closed loop off the main pump. Any feedback would be great.

Looks good! I can't help you with all automation. I keep it simple. Dose and add water each day by hand. I do have a doser and 2 different brands of ATO systems that are still sealed in their boxes....just old school

Good luck!

Not sure if this is good or not but I have tested my water every other day and here are the results.
