I'm going to add base rock to the other tank as well once I get the 200 gallon running.

Granted, its not a higher end one like the one I sold, but its cool in its own right. The model I bought is a marineland ML 2+2, which has 2 50 gallon tanks side by side with 2 seperate chillers and thermostats. It also has the cool push button relay that stops the pumps for up to 3 minutes and automatically turns them back on later.

Got the refrigerated auto feeder all done, just need to finish my sump and plumb it all together,thought I'd share some photos of what I managed to get done on my day off. I think the final cost on the auto feeder was under $60.
It started life as a free brown mini fridge. Threw a coat of semi gloss black on it to match the rest of the setup.
Here is the outside plumbing and hole where the power cord comes out for the doser. I took apart the dosing pump and unwired the power cord and ran it through the side so I didnt have to drill a hole the size of the plug and then fill it in.
Inside of the fridge, I kept the freezer in there since I didnt need any more room really and I can keep all the frozen mysis and plankton in here and keep the wife happy I used a piece of pipe to mount the doser on and left enough extra cord so I can pull it out and work on it or change settings easily.
And here is what I got going on for the insulated sump, still need some more bioballs though.
Wow I dig this, I think this is so cool once you begin using home appliances and camping gear to retrofit a tank.
I managed to make it through life with out getting the clap, crabs, herpes or AIDS.......But now I have a serios case of Cyano - Spirofucci, May 30, 2013
