still pondering the idea.. to be honest i kinda like the manuel labor as it forces me to focus on the tank and check things i would otherwise over look... must be because my tank is still "new" in a sense....

I hear ya on that one. My profession is actually an electrical engineer so i try to design/do things to help me keep my tank as automated as possible. once i understand the requirements i try to figure out how to get it done automatically. right now my tank runs on a ca reactor, diy auto topoff with diy kalk reactor, all lights are automated and run thru dawn, midday ,dusk then moon lights, auto fish feed I designed my sump and tank myself. to be honest the entire tank, sump, filtration system was designed, hand built either by myself or a custom builder and really thought out to make servicing and up keep as simple as possible. right now the only intervention is to do my test kit, and 10% water change every other week. i'm a lazy person at heart so i need automation! lol

100 Gal SPS Rimless, 2X250 Watt + 4T5's Giesemann infinity, Bubble King Mini 200 skimmer, Ca reactor, DIY Kalk Reactor. See my Reef aquarium in HD video http://www.fishtanks.net/fishtank.php?fishtank=2207.
