I'm noticing you kept the thin boarding for the back of the cabinet. Are you having any heat related issues due to the chiller be enclosed in the space?
I have a temp sensor in the cabinet to control the fan above the chiller. The chiller really doesn't run very often yet. I have my lights turned down while im cycling the tank. I have slowly started to increase the intensity of the lights. I'm suspecting when i get the light to the intensity I want, it will start heating the water and the chiller will run more. The chiller I have actually blows the air towards the cabinet door. I don't think it will be an issue for me. If your chiller blows air towards the rear, may i suggest putting a fan on the back where the air blows to keep the temp down.

Thanks for the advice.

Awesome attention to detail and design.

I am thinking of getting back in the hobby after a break and was looking at the S-1000. I am curious, how are you liking the overall tank so far and would you recommend it?

Second topic, for your ATO. Do you have the optical sensors to turn on ATO fill when it reaches the bottom sensor and then stop at the top sensor and using a FMM module? If you are, can you share the Neptune code, believing it would be similar to a latch circuit.

Excellent engineering brother! You must be single. No way my wife would let me have another tank after a leak like that. You have some big cohones getting another RedSea. I assume that you blame the move stress on the leak.

I didn't really like the idea of having 6 power bricks for the kessil lights so i got 2 adjustable power supplies. I set them to 19.5v I aslo fused each one of them to the rating of the power supply. Installed everything on the top underneath of the cabinet.

This looks great. I did something very similar on my S1000 using Meanwell power supplies.

I have a few wires and hoses to secure. I also need to run some outlets in the sump cabinet for some in sump reactors. This is the point of the build I'm at right now.
