    Looks great. JJ is the wrong person to get a tank from, next thing you know he'll be tearing up your basement.

    After a year and a half of carrying buckets I finally broke down and made a salt water mixing station. It will be able to pump the salt water right into the tank for water changes. It will also act as my ATO. I just need to move the pump from my current ATO to the barrel. The RODI unit is under the sink with a ball valve to start and stop it. The waste water is using the same drain as the dish washer so I didn't have to use a saddle clamp.

    I will also be adding a top and sides to it as part of the deal. The deal being the wife lets me put this in the dining room as long as I can make it looks nice.

    That's a cool looking set up. Would love to learn how you did it.

    It was really simple. I built the base a little bigger than the two buckets. Then built the frame around the buckets. I made the front removable and the top on hinges to be able to do water changes easily. The RODI bucket has a pump in it to fill directly to the tank for an ATO.

    Very nice setup! I like the placement of everything, especially the coral on the Squidward house. :P
