@Amphrites I was thinking just getting 2 aqua lifters,putting them on a dual outlet timer I have and 2 5g buckets one with salt water and a empty one. 

 

 I also want something of some sort of good quality. I don't want something failing while I am gone for a month. That would be terrible. 

I mean, a cheap metered doser from BRS is pretty reliable mechanically, the timer outlets are mechanical and -apart from minor drifting- are pretty accurate too (could go digital).
Mitten has a solid suggestion, I was just thinking a DIY PVC overflow (actual overflow, as in the level has to rise in the tank from the pump dosing saltwater before anything drains) into a bucket in the back and a timer-controlled mix of saltwater dosed into the tank, then you could just mark the waterlevel with a sticky note or something and have your wife top-off with freshwater every-other morning or so.
It would cause tiny salinity-swings so it may not be ideal, but I like budget-simplicity XD

 I would rather not,honestly. I would rather not have a algae infested tank whenever I come home lol. I mean for $130 I could have a full auto wc system. 

 

 My wife was saying I can fill your ato reservoir but I don't want to change water lol. 

 

 Aqualifters are like $8 cheaper overall so why not go with something more controllable ? I think its an overall better idea for the X1's since I don't have a sump or anything.

I thought you were building a system with a sump...must have gotten your builds confused.  make sure to get the newer x1pro, x1 reviews have been that they lose connectivity and programming with power outage (if it's a big issue around you).

I was going to,but I was having spacing issues and couldn't accommodate a sump.  

 

 The reviews weren't thaaaat bad that I read on BRS. Either the X1's or AquaLifters. AL aren't bad either,I have never bad a bad one in 10+ years.

So its done guys,tank will be on auto pilot while I am gone. All my wife will have to do is clean the glass. I will probably keep this for the future use to once I am back. Have the pumps kick on every other day for 1-2 minutes and replenish and take water out at the same time. 20200917_163150.thumb.jpg.b5df4ee7d9500c3254ba95e896d4539b.jpg

I wish shipping weren't so hefty an expense, I can find most of the zoa's I'm interested in, the ones which still functionally exist that is lol -lookin' at you lemonheads-, but shipping means that getting oddballs into one place becomes a silly, silly experience haha.

Did some testing:

 

 NH3-0

 NO2-.05

 NO3-2

 PH-8.2-8.4 

 

 So many frags are already popping out new and open babies,or spreading flesh to pop out more babies. The one I am happy about is the Psychosis !!!
