What Do I Need To Run This Setup?

  • As with any overflow type setup, an Auto-Top-Off system (sold separately) is required (not optional) to maintain the water level inside the overflow box. We recommenced the AUTO Aqua Smart ATO or ATO system with similar sized sensor, to be installed inside the overflow box, to keep your display water level stable from evaporation. Evaporation causes water level inside your overflow box to drop quickly and will start gurgling/bubbling as the intake suck air in, the ATO prevented this from happening.

    You really need an ATO for this to work.

    Received this item and had issues from the get go. Causing the filter to sputter causing micro bubbles to flood the tank. Needless to say coral were not happy. Had to adjust the flow of the filter to all the way on its lowest setting for this to work properly. And in the middle of the night it started sputtering again and again flooding the tank with micro bubbles. It was the middle of the night so I messed with the filter flow again till it stopped but according to the manufacture this item does best with a ato system to keep the water level the same all the time.

      The micro bubbles and noises were caused by the intake struggling to pull any water in as the water level inside the overflow can drop rapidly due to evaporation. For this reason, we recommend this unit to be used with an Auto-Top-Off system as with any overflow setup, this is essentially required to keep the water the same at all time. While topping off manually may be an option, for such a small overflow box, the inside water level will drop rapidly before the anti-dry-run protection kicks in (hence micro bubbles and noises).
