Tank is running for two weeks now, pods are all over the rocks, snads and glasses .

still waiting for powehead/wave maker I have ordered online, thinking a bout getting a mini ATO system ,has anyone used Coral BOX 100?

Dual Sensor Auto Top Off (ATO) System - Optical & Mechanical w/Pump (https://www.amazon.ca/Coral-Box-A100-Sensor-System/dp/B015RM10H2/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1496438951&sr=8-4&keywords=ato)

Looks great so far. What powerhead did you go with?
No comment on the coralbox as Ive never seen one. The Hydor smart level/toms aqualifter combo has been flawless on my 10 gallon for about 3 years now
And keep an eye on the magnet cleaner, mine rusted out after about a year.

I have ordered a Smart ATO micro , it is smallest ATO in the market ,it has an optical sensor size of the 1 cent. that was the only one I can easily fit in the pump chamber ,and I am able to put the tank original lid on.

ATO and wave maker arrived and installed, the powerhead / wave maker is Jebao WP-10, comes with controller, it's kinda too powerful for this tank, but at minimum setting it seems I can keep it, the water got cloudy, but I hope it gets settle down

It is lot of flow, I cant say it is good or bad as I dont have anything in the tank, I will let it go as is for now, once I have added corals if they were happy with the flow I will keep it ,if not I will remove it and just use more power full return pump , the Fluval Spec stock pump is not enough for Saltwater tank.

The water is way more clear than yesterday, not crystal clear
