I got a free electronic float switch from a friend... Id like to do an ATO because the evap is crazy with all the surface area on the tank... Could i just simply make the top off with a small pump, some tubing, a five gallon bucket, and the float switch?

Here's my parents tank...

Posted Image

Im apprehensive about posting pics of my tank cuz the lights throw off the camera's colors and theres no customizable wightbalance. If i were to get a rather inexspensive digital camera with all of the good settings, what would you guys recommend?

I orderd the ReefKeeperLite Basic today... cant wait for it to come! :D

I really want to have a go at sps. i believe my tanks perameters are good for it.
ammonia 0
nitrite 0
nitrate 0<.5
spcific grav or salinity 1.025
phosphates 0
calcium 460 (is that okay?)
alk 10

Lighting:
2 dual 24in t5ho
Ati blue+
Ati aquablue special
Ati purple plus
Ati blue +

Would this be good enough for sps?
The lights are approx 19" to the sandbed

You setup sounds fine for sps just make sure your water parameters stay that way.

I have been reading alot on here... and to my knowledge i wont really have to dose if i keed doing my weekly water changes... unless theres alot of alk and calc intake. Right? sorry for all of the questions i just wanna get my stuff right.

That's correct. Until your sps begin absorbing alk and cal faster than you can replenish them with water changes you will be fine.

Thankyou alot Rehype... youve been one of the most helpful people on here. Much appreciated
I wish i could get some better pics of my tank. Our camera doesnt have a white balance that does any justice. In the pics it makes my prettiest corals look like poo. :angry:
