Just pulled the trigger on this cat. 6 foot long, 28" wide and 24" deep. Total volume is 221 g with 171 display. Not sure when it's going to come in but it comes with the rock, sand, sump and a power management station. Going to take some time because I've still got to get lights, return pump and all the other goodies. But I'm going to get my tank!!!!

I also picked up some nice corals at the WWC Live sale yesterday. They will be going into my JBJ nano until I get the Cade set up. Just going to keep them in a frag rack for now.

I'll look forward to following along with your build! I bought the 1500 on the 25th and am anxiously awaiting its arrival as well. Last I heard it was under final inspection before being packaged up for the freight company to pick it up. So hopefully it's on its way soon!

Yes!! Another REEFER close to me! I am down in Hampton.

Congrats on the new tank! I look forward to seeing LOTS of photos! If you need any help loading, unloading or anything else, let me know. I know how hard it is to get enough hands to move tanks around.

Again, congrats!

Mike

“People “ have written that the ATO is a pain. After you have lived with it for a while you might giv your assessment.
These tanks look much better than the competition, mainly due to the aluminum stand.

The ATO is gravity fed and the fill is on the back of the tank. If it gives me grief there is a space for a chiller, which to date I have not needed. Of course I have not had a tank this big before either so we will see. But the space for the chiller is big enough I can drop an ATO reservoir in there. I love the fact is has an aluminum stand and the power management area, which also gives room for controllers. That is what really sold me.
