Auto Top Off Suggestions For Pico

I'm looking for an ATO system for my 5 gallon Spec V zoanthid tank. I'd like to find something compact and reliable that doesn't cost $150. Any suggestions?

I use the JBJ ato on my Nuvo 20. That's the cheapest unit I wanted to use and not have a high risk for flood. About $80. You will still need a pump and a reservoir. I used a PMUP.

For the pump I suggest an aqualifter or some sort of peristaltic pump that has a low flow rate so that you're not making quick swings in the water chemistry. has good prices, and several options that should work for you.

Do a good turn daily.
