    No name I got it from archit when he was selling corals. Lucky for you it started to melt when I put it in my tank so I fragged it into many pieces and 5 pieces are encrusted now if you want one. I have some. Swing by this weekend I have that frag of reeftech starburst cap also

    Finally got around to building the water change station and fresh water holding tank that will be all automated with hi low switches.

    I'd like to see this mapped out. Mind diagramming out your plumbing if you can redline this pic? Curious

    You want to know how the water flows and stuff? If so I'll do it in a little bit

    Solid job. I didn't get the drains and bucket fills now I got it! Nice rig.
    How would you go about cleaning any salt mix residue, you know, gray matter. Can you get a scrubber or something and your arm in through the top lids? Not that cleaning that residue is a must...

    If I had to yes. The lids are 6 or 7 inches in diameter.

    nice setup.
    man, this probably cost more than the display tank setup itself.

    Wasn't that bad maybe 150 in material and 160 for storage containers and I had the vectra m1 from when my sump was under my display tank

    So got the water storage all setup and going. Got the hi/low switches wired into an apex breakout box so when the low switch opens the water solenoid opens to let water in and then when the hi switch closes it closes the solenoid to stop letting water into the tank. I did it like this because I kept forgetting the water was on filling my 20l ato tank and it was overflowing all the time. Call me forgetful. So inbuilt it like this to start filling when 12g of water is left and it fills the container to 55g. Now my rodi unit won't turn on as much as it was, which should help to membrane life by a lot. Also if anyone is looking to do something like this just let me know I can give you a hand or pointers.

    Having the Rodi run off float switches, does it still flush the membranes after making water?

    No I will still have to flush the membranes myself. I try to flush them once a month for 5-10 mins
