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.

    I really like the design and flow, removing the surface water. The outside magnets should be housed in plastic because they fly all over the place and stick to motor magnet.

    Removed the biofilm quickly from my freshwater aquascape. The water looks great. Need to get some stainless steel mesh to keep the shrimp out though.
