Yes I lm keeping things simple for now so I used the stock plumbing. I’m up in the air as far as a control panel. Still deciding what approach I’d like to take.Interested to see how this progresses I started my cycle on my wb180.5 last Friday 12/18. So similar timing. Did you use the stock plumbing and what are you planning for control panel?
I just received my 180.5. I am having problems with the cabinet installation with a panel "N" cross member. Looks like I received the incorrect hardware.
When I purchased mine it was the “reef pro 180.5”. The ato reservoir is actually one of the sump chambers. The new 180.5 models now have the separated ato reservoirTank is looking great. Would love to hear any updates. May I ask where your ato reservoir is? From what I've been able to tell, there's an external reservoir included that is meant to go in the left side of the cabinet. But it seems you were able to use that for your controller, which I would like to do as well. Haven't pulled the trigger yet, but I'm in the planning stage.
I repurposed my “ato” to add additional water volume. Just ran a line from the manifold for a low flow area that could be used as a fuge, frag area, or anything else I suppose.When I purchased mine it was the “reef pro 180.5”.
