texanreefer Posted January 21, 2016 Share Posted January 21, 2016 So I recently received my Smart ATO Micro from Marine Depot and so far I absolutely love it. I have a Fluval Spec V tank and no other ATO on the market really appealed to me as they were all too big for my liking. I was extremely excited when I heard AutoAqua was making a micro version of the Smart ATO for smaller sized aquariums, so I pre-ordered mine as soon as possible. Marine Deport is currently offering them at an introductory price of $99, which I thought was extremely reasonable. However I have heard they will be going up to $129. After receiving my package I opened it up and found it was really easy to setup. It did come with some instructions but they aren't really needed. I placed the sensor in my pump chamber of the spec V and the outlet tubing in my media chamber. It works great and I can hear it turn on several times throughout the day topping up in really small amounts. This keeps my salinity at a steady 1.025 at all times. The only small gripe I currently have about the system is that the main control box emits an extremely high pitch sound at all times. I can only hear it when I am close to my tank either looking at it or cleaning it. I'm not sure why the sound is coming out of it but it is quite annoying if your close to it for more than a few minutes. I have a few photos I will upload at a later time. Currently Photobucket is not allowing me to upload photos for some reason. 4 Quote Link to comment
