What ATO are you looking at? That is probably going to be my next investment as well.

I was just going to use the third channel on a dosing pump. Unsure of a brand yet bubble magnus seems to be the most widely used/highest rated but also quite pricey. If i was doing this on a larger tank i would go with the storm system from genesis reef.

Just a quick update. Filtration was moved to a canister(finex px360), inline diffuser (ista max mix), and a diy inline heater( 1 and 1/2" pvc, with a 3/4" uniseal and 100w ehiem jagger). Topped off with glass Lilly pipes. Only thing left is to get my bml 6500k light.

Carpet is filling out with no issues. I do need to fill out the scape some more. Dealing with a bad blue green algea problem but I think the light is the factor here. Too low a light and the plants aren't out competing for the nutirents. Will definitely post as this progresses.

So in a very bad mood, this tank was doing well since setup, i went away for vacation for a week and had a person in my office feeding the tank. An air bubble stalled the filter. I came back to 60% plant melt, what isnt melted is covered in algea, and half of my CPDs died. Thinking this is a good time for a full rescape, trying to decide if i should go with hc cuba again or try glosso or ricca for a carpet.
